His publicity in CsH
11/1/2001: The promoters of the KYRO move...: impelled by the "effect XP"?
Since it was of waiting, the big hardware manufacturers are updating the controlers (drivers) of his devices. NVIDIA and ATI were of the first ones in giving support to the new-born operating system of Microsoft Windows XP. Likewise, Creative is doing it gradually and between end of this month and middle of the one that comes he waits "to throw them" to the network.
Now it touches him the shift to PowerVR and STMicroelectronics, which update the controlers of his chips KYRO and KYRO II to give native support and full compatibility to Windows XP and the DirectX 8.1 that this operating system includes. This way, already it is possible to enjoy the such excellent qualities of this card like Full Scene Anti-Aliasing, or Environmental and Dot3 Bump Mapping.
To remember that Microsoft recommends only the drivers installation with the digital signature of his laboratories to assure the biggest stability and possible compatibility. A system begun with Windows 2000 that already caused an important delay in the controlers for Windows 2000, anything that seems will not be repeated by Windows XP. Again it is demonstrated that the manufacturers owe "happen for the hoop" that Microsoft establishes; and, nevertheless, a servant thinks that this way Microsoft sometimes is right...
On the other hand, VideoLogic (like PowerVR, a division of Imagination Technologies Group), in spite of trying to snatch a small portion of level of market from NVIDIA with his graphic cards based on the KYRO, not contentments approach positions cornered for the time being by Creative with the presentation of a new scale of multimedia products: PURÉE.
The mark PURÉE will be assined principally to the domestic free time; the presented products are:
- PURÉE LiFE 4/10, a loudspeakers game surround for "surrounds at home".
- PURÉE DRX-601EX, a digital radio portable DAB.
- PURÉE DRX-601ESM, Mini radio DAB.
- PURÉE MCP-601ES, an amplifier multichannel.
- PURÉE DAP-601ES, a processor of digital sound.
- Sets of loudspeakers PURÉE of subwoofer and satellites.
