VIA's graphics chip subsidiary, S3, will see its GammaChrome 3D part appear in retail boards in the Far East in Q4, the company's CFO said today.

S3 will begin pitching the part at card makers and system builders in October.

Claiming that the GammaChrome will offer comparable performance to ATI's Radeon X600 Pro, S3's Gerry Liu said one of three planned versions of the chip will ship in Q4, according to a DigiTimes report.

Pitched at the PCI Express market, the GammaChrome was launched in March 2004. GPUs will feature its Chromotion 2.0 programmable video engine, along with native HDTV output. S3 will pitch GammaChrome parts at the high end, the mid-range and the value market - presumably the three versions Liu referred to. ®
