The Volari Duo V8 Ultra was a graphics card by XGI, launched on September 15th, 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the XG40 graphics processor, in its Volari V8 Ultra variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0. Since Volari Duo V8 Ultra does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. Volari Duo V8 Ultra combines two graphics processors to increase performance. It features 4 pixel shaders and 2 vertex shaders, 8 texture mapping units, and 4 ROPs, per GPU. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). XGI has paired 512 MB DDR memory with the Volari Duo V8 Ultra, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface per GPU (each GPU manages 256 MB). The GPU is operating at a frequency of 350 MHz, memory is running at 375 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the XGI Volari Duo V8 Ultra draws power from 2x Molex power connectors, with power draw not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. Volari Duo V8 Ultra is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
