Xi Graphics Announces Support For New ATI Radeon VE Card; DualView Capability Allows Additional Screen Space for Users

Jul 13, 2001, 01:00 ET from Xi Graphics Inc.

    DENVER, July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Xi Graphics Inc., a seven-year-old private
 firm that specializes in premium graphics support software for Linux and UNIX
 systems, announced today the release of driver support for the Radeon VE, the
 latest in ATI's line of Radeon graphics cards.  Support for the Radeon VE is
 now available as a free downloadable update to owners of the Xi Graphics
 Accelerated-X v6.
     Xi Graphics was the first to develop Linux and Solaris drivers for the
 highly anticipated Radeon line of cards, announcing support last November for
 the RADEON(TM) 32 MB DDR and RADEON(TM) 64 MB DDR.
     "The VE card is the first in the Radeon family that uses the DualView
 feature," said Jon Trulson, Xi Graphics' engineering manager.  "We have
 directed our engineering efforts to support DualView mode whenever possible in
 response to the popularity and demand for this feature."
     The DualView feature in Single Logical Screen mode splits the output
 buffer between two monitors, allowing the cursor to drag things across the
 boundary of the two screens.  In Zoom view mode, one monitor can display a
 small cursor-movable area onto a second screen with a different resolution.
 The resolution may be "hot-key" switched to change the image size.
     A downloadable demo is available at the Xi Graphics Web site at
 www.xig.com.  The new software supports Linux and Solaris 8 for Intel and
 comes with Xi Graphics' standard Accelerated-X v6 boxed product.  The cost is
 $99.95 and includes free unlimited technical support.  Customers may order
 online via the Web site or toll-free at 1-800-946-7433.
