S3 Graphics today announced the arrival of the GammaChrome family of next generation graphics processors. Demonstrating full commitment to the PCI Express initiative, S3 Graphics is providing natively integrated PCI Express technology for all products instead of the ‘bridge’ technology offered by such companies as NVIDIA.

A full line of GammaChrome graphics processors will be provided starting from the high end utilizing the “latest fabrication technology”, according to the official press-release. Both the high-end and mainstream segments will feature the next generation Chromotion 2.0 programmable video engine with new capabilities to enrich the video playback experience. S3 Graphics will also integrate their sought-after Hi-Def native HDTV output technology to compliment the Chromotion 2.0 engine. Finally, a value line of the GammaChrome will be available, too.

GammaChrome based products are expected to be available Q3 2004 in retail add-in-card as well as OEM desktop/notebook personal computers. S3 decided to refrain from sharing any of the GammaChrome features and specifications besides those few ones mentioned above. However, we suspect that GammaChrome will be actually based on the DeltaChrome architecture, which we have already covered in detail in our Review.
