Videologic! reduce! Vivid!

Releases higher-end "XS" card too, for a few bob more

With the Kyro II about to debut in Guillemot's "3D Prophet 4500", Videologic have taken steps to piggy-back the chip's publicity by re-releasing its "Vivid!" Kyro-based card at a purse-friendly £64 ex. VAT, which puts it at around the same mark as the cheapest of GeForce 2 MX cards. A new 32Mb version of the card called "Vivid!XS" features TV-Out, better DVD playback and the newer Kyro II chipset! The XS will cost just £84 ex. VAT, which also puts it at around the mark of its competitors the Radeon VE and the GeForce 2 MX, even if the VE is aimed at business. The only problem is that both the MX and VE offer dual VGA output at that price point, whereas the Kyro has no support for the technology. Nonetheless, Videologic president Kevin Dale says that "For high-intensity gaming Vivid!XS provides segment leading performance at a very affordable cost with an enormous effective fill rate, intense scene complexity and all with the dazzling visual quality of full 32-bit rendering". Also on the release agenda for today are revised "silver, performance tuned" versions of the popular home cinema products the DigiTheatre DTS, DigiTheatre and the DRX-601ES digital radio tuner.
