Club3D started today with the retailing of graphics cards based on the S3 Graphics DeltaChrome S8 chip.
S3 DeltaChrome S8 is the company’s performance-mainstream graphics processor with 8 rendering pipelines featuring one TMU per each, advanced pixel and vertex shaders beyond DirectX 9.0 specs, some memory bandwidth saving technologies, multi-display capabilities, 400MHz RAMDAC, integrated TV-Out controller, TMDS transmitter and so on, support for 480p / 720p / 1080i / 1080p HDTV resolutions via component (YPbPr) output, 480i standard TV output via S-video and composite output, programmable video engine and AGP 8x support.

Club 3D’s DeltaChrome S8 graphics cards with 256MB of DDR SDRAM memory feature D-Sub, DVI-I as well as TV-Out connectors. The products are clocked at 300MHz/600MHz clock-speeds for VPU/memory, a little bit less compared to 300MHz/650MHz speeds suggested by S3 Graphics, but still much faster compared to 250MHz/500MHz specification proposed by PowerColor, a subsidiary of Tul Corporation.
The suggested retail price is 155 euro.
