That exact picture appeared on www.deltachrome.com some time ago, first reported as a S3 Destination card... but it has since been reported that this was a mistake. It is nothing more, or less, than a S3 Chrome27 card with HDMI output. And the Chrome27 is DX9. I don't think Destination, (S3's DX10 GPU), has come this far yet.

Nice choice with the black pcb but the cooler definately needs make over.

EDIT: Wonder how it performs in DX 9.

that card will be slower then 6600 or even slower then 6200, knowing S3 record. really don't expect much.

Not very suprising.. anyhow I expect any S3 offering to be pretty low-mid end, bit too low for my taste..

And about this "Vista" talk, I mean a lowend card that isnt intended for gaming doesnt really need DX10 support, if its intended for desktop acceleration that isnt using DX10 afaik.

no it doesnt really need DX10, as the desktop will be DX9 based. rumor has it that true DX10 games wont really be released for a while because game makers design to the masses and not to the ppl with the best hardware available, aka jAkUp :D
