Club 3D, a European graphics card vendor, and S3 announced plans to release an entry-level graphics card with TV tuner and HDTV capabilities. This card will be the OmniChrome S4.
Club 3D OmniChrome S4 is based on S3 OmniChrome S4, a chip that is sometimes referred as GammaChrome S4, clocked at 350MHz, is equipped with 128MB of 600MHz DDR memory, on-board 1216/1236ME TV tuner from Philips Electronics along with HDTV VIVO capabilities. Retail package will include a remote control and feature a software bundle that includes InterVideo’s latest revisions of WinDVR, WinDVD and WinDVD Creator.

The S3 OmniChrome, or DeltaChrome S4, graphics processor is a cut-down version of the company’s DeltaChrome S8 Nitro chip that is designed to fulfill the needs of mainstream users. The lower-cost S4 product features 4 rendering pipelines, two times less compared to the S8 graphics chip, but still delivers advanced pixel and vertex shaders beyond DirectX 9.0 specs, certain 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.
