S3 Graphics announces power efficient graphics processor for mini-notebooks

Logo S3 GraphicsS3 Graphics has announced its Chrome 400 Ultra Low Power (ULP) graphics processor series, based on a power-efficient GPU architecture. Today's users will now be able to enjoy the latest HD media playback and DirectX 10.1 gaming experience on mini-notes as well as notebook PCs, with minimal impact on battery life.

Ultra mobile PCs, like the increasingly popular mini-note PC category, are designed to be thin and light so manufacturers could not integrate largely due to the required cooling apparatus. Using less than 7 watts, the S3 Graphics Chrome 400 ULP series graphics processors produce significantly less heat than competitor offerings, enabling the addition of dedicated graphics to mini-note PCs for the first time.

The S3 Graphics Chrome 400 ULP series delivers a compelling blend of features and performance "S3 Graphics can now deliver a superior mobile visual experience that users will soon demand on all mini-note and mobile products," said Dr. Ken Weng, GM for S3 Graphics. "Our latest Chrome 400 ULP series processors offer manufacturers a mobile graphics component that's long overdue; a truly power-efficient mobile GPU that really performs."

The S3 Graphics Chrome 400 ULP series is already shipping, and notebook OEM customers include Fujitsu.

The S3 Graphics Chrome 400 ULP Series is available in three SKUs, including the Chrome 430 ULP with a TDP of less than 7 watts; the Chrome 435 ULP; and the Chrome 440 ULP.
