S3 Graphics and Club3D Bring DeltaChrome to Europe
S3 Graphics, Club-3D Announce Partnership to Bring DeltaChrome Desktop PC Graphics to the European Market
"We are very pleased with Club-3D’s selection of our DeltaChrome graphics processor," said Nadeem Mohammad, Product Marketing Manager, S3Graphics, Inc. "Club-3D has a great reputation for delivering the latest and most innovative technologies, and DeltaChrome’s unique feature set, including DX9+ Hi-Def rendering, the Chromotion video engine and DuoRotate, will help establish Club-3D as the premier vendor of choice for PC graphics."
Club-3D, the retail brand of Power Color BV, will be the first graphics board vendor to bring DeltaChrome products to the European marketplace. Club-3D’s distinctive black packaging with the 3-leaf clover symbol will be complemented with chrome to identify its range of DeltaChrome products; they will be seen on the shelves of leading European electronic retailers in early 2004.
"With its DirectX9+, eight pixel shaders and four vertex shaders, DeltaChrome delivers solid game performance, but when you add in all its ‘beyond-3D’ features, it becomes one of the best graphics solutions in its class - that’s why we are so excited to bring this graphics solution to our customers," said Marco Wellermann, Marketing Manager, Club-3D, the Power Color Company.
Club-3D’s first DeltaChrome board will feature 256MB video memory, DirectX 9.0 games support with hardware pixel shaders ver2.0+ and hardware vertex shaders ver2.0+, native Hi-Def HDTV for superlative image quality, the Chromotion programmable video engine for greater video utility, 2D-XP for no-compromise acceleration for Windows XP best appearance modes, DVI, CRT, and DuoRotate that enables the concurrent support of dual portrait and landscape displays.
