It has been a while since we’ve heard from S3 Graphics though that doesn’t mean they are gone.  The Chrome 430 that was announced a while ago is starting to show up on reviewers desks and the first review is at VIA Arena.  The stats of the card sound good, a 625MHz engine clock and 256MB of 500MHz GDDR2 and full support for DX10 and PCI Express 2.0.  All that for $60 and an extra 143W power draw on your system.

“The S3 Graphics Chrome 430 GT features the latest graphics core from S3 Graphics. The card has been designed with the features that mainstream users desire. They have designed an all-round use graphics card at a reasonable price. But before we take a look at the card, for those of you who don’t know who S3 are, let me give you a little bit of history.”
