All three are very similar in their features; they support various modes and are flexible enough to be able to output a VGA compatible signal which is not supported by the Xbox kernel.
The Xcalibur video encoder is a custom chip manufactured for Microsoft. The Focus FS was used in v1. This method of heatsink attachment does not result in optimum heat transfer conexanh the core to the heatsink; properly applied thermal grease would have done the job much better.

There is also a sister model CX without the Macrovision capability. Both cards seem to require memory heatsinks in order to maintain proper operation of the memory. These include, but are not necessarily limited to: Going along with the blue motif, Guillemot includes blue memory heatsinks RAMsinks on each of the eight memory chips. Click to Enlarge Click to Enlarge In order to make room for the BT chip and the traces that run to the output connector, Guillemot had to move the power components normally present in the upper left hand corner of the card.
Retrieved from ” http: Xcalibur The Xcalibur video encoder is a custom chip manufactured for Microsoft. This page was last modified on 27 Decemberat The capabilities of the Xcalibur chip, however, remain a mystery in this regard: Navigation menu Personal tools Create account Log in. It is here that we see another way that the GeForce2 Pro chip follows in the foot steps of the faster GeForce2 Ultra part. All video encoders are connected to and controlled via the SMBus.
Unfortunately, Guillemot chose to attach the heatsink and fan to the GeForce2 Pro core with only the use of side clips and a non-adhesive thermal pad. The video encoder used in the Xbox is more flexible, and can generate several different types of signals that adhere to various video standards and color formats.
NVIDIA GeForce2 Pro
It was first used in Xbox hardware revision 1. It seems bg869 current memory technology can not run faster than around MHz DDR while maintaining stability without some form of cooling. As you can see, the BT chip forces the power components to the back of the card, extending it a full inch.
This chip was used in Xbox versions 1. They are, however, not register-compatible. Views Read View source View history. In the case of the GeForce2 Pro, as well as the GeForce2 Ultra, this cooling comes in the form conexany memory heatsinks, in this case blue ones. There is also a sister model FS without the Macrovision capability.
It seems the only way to find out more is through reverse-engineering techniques. In order to make room for the BT chip and the traces that run to the output connector, Guillemot had to move the power components normally present in the upper left hand corner of the card.
These include, but are not necessarily limited vt869.
Conexant – datasheet pdf
Two of the video encoders Conexant CX and Focus FS also have extensive scaling and filtering functionality, which allows for overscan compensation in desktop-style “TV out” usage.

The board continues in this recent conexnt from Guillemot by demonstrating a blue PCB along with blue heatsinks that help to set it apart from the competition aesthetically, however that doesn’t buy it too much in terms of added value. This is because it is no longer necessary to produce a separate PCB in order to allow video-output.
