S3 Graphics has continued to innovate and lead the industry in providing power efficient products at high performance levels for a true green computing device able to hit EPA power requirements for graphics processors. The latest implementation of the S3 proprietary hardware and software power management technology — PowerWise™ - enables further power saving features based on patent-pending algorithms and ground-breaking hardware design.
PowerWise™ provides multiple levels of power efficiency based on user mode and operating system (OS) power settings, to adjust the power-performance levels on-the-fly. Transitioning from different levels of power-performance settings does not require user intervention and the process is transparent with glitch-free screen refreshes.
PowerWise™ delivers the optimal balance between performance and power, to meet the demanding performance requirements of users at work and play for power efficient graphics computing on mobile, desktop, and small form factor (SFF) PCs. Additional benefits allow users to increase time-between-charges by extending battery life and superior performance-per-watt operation, giving users a true mobile graphics platform in conjunction with the latest 3D and HD video technologies.
Enabling PowerWise™ in notebooks brings desktop performance and features at notebook power levels. In the corporate market, PowerWise™ is ideal to reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) and minimizing electricity usage and cooling costs. In consumer desktops, PowerWise™ allows silent, fanless solutions for use in HD multimedia home entertainment systems.
The latest implementation of PowerWise™ is showcased in the Chrome 400 Series graphics processors.
