But I'm pretty sure I'll trade all of them for a XGI Volari Duo.
I woudn't. While it certainly has interesting monetary value, it's practically useless for anything. Horrible chip with horrible drivers.
But I do remember the hype buildup until release and the flock of zealots hailing it as the ultimate video card. Even I was caught up in the hype train at one point.
Then it was released as a hillarious 🤣-a-thon.
For the simple fact that it was a bigger market troll than the FX5800Ultra I would trade my FX5800Ultra for an XGI Volari Duo.
I wouldn`t... The FX5800ultra is the ONLY card missing in my ''high-end Nvidia versions'' collection: the top dog from every series.. I have the NV1, Riva128,TNT, TNT2 Ultra, Geforce256 DDR, Geforce2 Ultra, Geforce3 ti500, Geforce 4 ti4600, FX5950 Ultra, 6800 Ultra, 7800GS, 7800GS+ Gainward Golden sample with 7950GT core,7900GT and 7950GT all in agp (except ofcourse for the NV1 and the Riva128, they are pci). I also have the FX5800 vanilla but the one I can not obtain is the Fx5800 Ultra.... (and way to expensive for me on Ebay).
I wouldn`t care about the Volari V8 Duo. A few months ago I almost bought a boxed Volari Duo but I jumped ship at 150 euro (it sold for that). Same seller offered me a card without a box (but working) for 75 euro and I declined as well. It's not a great card and I would never use it. Hope to find a cheap FX5800 Ultra some day.
