VIA today presented its DualGFX Express technology at E3 Expo 2005 in Los Angeles.
VIA DualGFX Express enables dual-graphics card platforms providing exceptional 3D graphics performance on a single display, as well as the ability to provide enhanced support for powerful multi-display systems.
E3 will see the first public display of the high-performance VIA K8T890 Pro core-logic chipset, running dual graphics cards for enhanced 3D gaming performance. Also being displayed is an advanced multi-display system based on the unique architecture of the VIA PT880 Pro chipset, which supports both PCI Express and AGP graphics interfaces.
S3 Graphics will be demonstrating GammaChromeS18, the first in the GammaChrome line of native PCI Express GPUs targeted at the mainstream graphics market, featuring full DirectX 9.0 hardware and S3G's signature Hi-Def™ native HDTV display capability for the ultimate visual experience.
Also on show at the VIA booth will be VIA Grease Monkey, an easy-to-use desktop application that ensures up-to-the-minute updates for all of the most popular PC games, eliminating time-consuming online searching and waiting for important updates to download.
VIA DualGFX Express technology is available on a new generation of motherboards entering the market featuring VIA PT880 Pro chipsets for the Intel Pentium® 4 processor platform. The forthcoming VIA K8T890 Pro chipset will enable VIA DualGFX Express support on the AMD64 processor platform.
