S3 Graphics again attempts to re-enter the market of graphics cards once again with a new chip that boasts new levels of performance and efficiency. S3 has come a lone way and improved loads of problems with stability, reliability, driver support and compatibility. But has it done enough to create a product that would be loved by consumers? Read our review to find out!
The S3 Chrome S27 is no slower than the older GeForce 6600, ensuring a rather high speed in resolutions up to 1280x1024 and even in 1600x1200 to some extent. In the “eye candy” mode the performance of the card goes down to the level of the GeForce 6200 (that super-sampling again!), while the GeForce 6600 and both the RADEONs allow playing the game comfortably with turned-on FSAA.
There are no changes on the d3_c17_02 map where the RADEON X700 is in the lead, again. There are numerous enemies in the scene, so the performance of the cards is generally lower. You should use 1024x768 resolution with an S3 Chrome S27.
