S3 Graphics Chrome 530 GT Product Highlights
Microsoft? DirectX? 10.1 and OpenGL 2.1/3.0 Support
Realistic 3D rendering and increased visual sharpness through improved Anti-aliasing (AA), Image/Texture improvements, higher precision formats, and programmable lighting effects allow users to experience life-like rendering and image quality.
GPGPU (General Purpose GPU) Technology
Utilizing an array of S3 stream processors, the Chrome GPU can accelerate parallel data workloads and perform work on thousands of concurrent threads to achieve Gigaflops (GFLOPS) of high-throughput computations. Applications that can utilize S3 GPGPU technologies include high performance computing (HPC) infrastructures, video transcoding/encoding, game physics, and many more.
S3 Graphics PowerWise? Technology
Sophisticated algorithms and power control mechanisms will allow Chrome 500 Series GPUs to deliver the optimal balance between performance and power on-the-fly, to meet performance and application requirements for power efficient graphics intensive computing on small form factor PCs. Consuming under 25W of power, the Chrome 500 is ideal as the graphics of choice for HTPC (home theatre PCs), DIY enthusiasts, and existing PC users looking for the best bang for the buck upgrade.
Chrome 500 Series GPUs support the latest high throughput PCI Express? 2.0 bus technology for bandwidth intensive applications and games. The faster connection speed also allows users to take advantage of additional S3 Graphics technologies such as AcceleRAM? which leverages system memory for image data storage, and MultiChrome? Multi-GPU technology to unleash higher 3D rendering performance.
