S3 Graphics Still Talks Up Linux Support, But Fails
Phoronix: S3 Graphics Still Talks Up Linux Support, But Fails
S3 Graphics has announced this afternoon the release of the Chrome 540 GTX, which they advertise as "The World's Most Connected Hi-Def Card" with its HDMI, DisplayPort, and DVI connections. The Chrome 540 GTX runs at 850MHz, uses GDDR3 memory, and shares other features to the Chrome 530 GT that was introduced in the fourth quarter of 2008...
1. Produce GPU
2. Do shitty graphics drivers for windows, and no drivers for linux
3. Compete against big gpu makers that have decent drivers, and support linux (and even publish specs, like AMD/ATI)
5. How the hell do they expect this item to be "profit"!?
This *news* shouldn't even have a place in Phoronix. Nobody expects any graphics from s3 or s10000 or whatever - for that matter anyone except Nvidia, Ati or at last Intel. If anyone is pissed, it should be Linus for s3's cheap use of his trademark. But seriously, as [Knuckles] put it, why do it at first place? Somebody put this up at failblog.org .
