Officials for S3 Graphics in Fremont, California, denied Friday the forthcoming GammaChrome visual processing units did not sport native PCI Express connectivity. The new graphics products from S3 Graphics will feature new architecture and native support for the emerging bus.

“GammaChrome is a native PCI Express graphics processor and has no bridge,” Nadeem Mohammad, product marketing manager at S3 Graphics, told X-bit labs.

Earlier this week an Asian web-site published an article saying that S3 Graphics’ GammaChrome used a special “HSI” bridge to allow PCI Express connectivity. Representative for S3 assumed that either the story-writers had misunderstood something, or the person being interviewed had described the native PCI Express as an internal bridge.

“GammaChrome S18 is our first chip of a line of PCIe products, which all will be native PCI Express x16 products,” Mr. Mohammad emphasized.

Earlier this year S3 Graphics said that the GammaChrome visual processing units would feature architecture that was likely to be more powerful compared to existing DeltaChrome VPUs. S3’s representative added that the GammaChrome S18 will boast with a number of competitive advantages over products in the same class.

Here is a thought. how about no one cares. S3 makes horrible graphics cards that are slower than hell, have horrible driver problems, and have absolutely no user base. I dont see how they sold one of the cards. I would presume they gave out more to reviewers than they actually sold. Thier so called high end card couldnt even keep up with a 9600pro and it had twice the ram twice the pipelines and twice the number of gpus. Now that is a seriously sad state of affairs for S3. But i guess there will always be someone dumb enough to buy one of these cards....
