Supporting environmental bump mapping, dontcha know

Details about the SiS300 graphics chip have emerged. Hardware site Fullon3D says the graphic product will be integrated into new versions of SiS core logic sets 630/450. According to the site, which has prepared a set of benchmarks, the SiS300 is a standalone graphics chip which will supersede the SiS 6326. The 128-bit chip will support up to 64Mb of 166MHz SD/SGRAM and also implements environmental bump mapping, in a similar way to Matrox with its G400. The SiS300 will ship next month, and includes a range of DVD and video features, and different optimisations. ®
