I have high hopes for what XGI can accomplish, hopefully, fill in that gap that ATI and NVIDIA missed. The HDTV thing is a very good idea! Let's just hope they get it right...

The XG45 looks good, perhaps a low-budget card for a decent preformance.
With 128bit-256DDR3, it can compete directly to the 6600GT, with full HDTV support, and low heating of the chip if I read correctly.

I hope they dare a direct competing with the 6800GT&X800XT by using 2 chips on 1 board. Even if the price is doubled, they would present a 16pipes DDR3 256bits card for less then 400bucks, prolly more like 300.

I hope XGI stays in the running, because I miss the times of voodoo and the many manufacturors competeing against each other.
A long time nvidia has dominated since the gforce1, only ending when the ATI 8500 showed to be better then the GF3Ti500, which where almost released simuntaniously.
(note: the 8500 even preformed similar then the Gf4Ti)

Nice W1zzard ... ECS is making boards with a PCI-E port and AGP port .... that's interesting.

Anyone try one of the Asetek Vapochill HSF yet?
