    S3 let a Hexus journalist into their labs to check out their new video chipset, the Chrome20.
    Based on 90 nm technology and optimized for low power/low heat, things are looking good for the chipset. S3 says 'highest core clock of any GPU to date", and it will have 8 pixel shaders.

    S3 wants to make this chipset affordable and compatible, so an average Joe could put it in his computer and play the newest games at reasonable framerates at average resolutions such as 1024x768 and 1280x1024. What is more intriguing is the idea of this becoming an integrated graphics solution, being able to play games on an average laptop! :eek:
