S3 Graphics developing Chrome S20 GPU

Posted on Monday, September 05 2005 @ 21:41:55 CEST by

S3 Graphics is planning to launch a new PCI Express GPU called Chrome S20. It will be an upgraded architecture made on a 90nm process. The Chrome S20-series will be equipped with a new video engine called Chromotion 3.0 as well as multi-GPU technology called Multi-G.
The Chrome S20 family of chips is unlikely to contain any feature-set improvements compared to predecessors and will sport a set of DirectX 9.0 capabilities found in GammaChrome and DeltaChrome.

According to a roadmap posted over the Chrome-Center web-site, the Chrome S20 will consist of 3 visual processing units (VPUs): S23, S25 and S27 designed for entry-level, mainstream and performance-mainstream markets respectively. While the roadmap does not touch specifications upon, it is reported that S27 features 8 pixel pipelines, supports Multi-G technology and operates at 700MHz or higher. It is projected that the chips will sport 128-bit memory interface and will be able to operate with DDR, GDDR2 and GDDR3 memory.
These new products are expected in November. Chrome S20 GPUs called XM23 ,XM25 and XM27 for notebooks are also developed and will be launched later this year and early next year.
