    Phoronix: VIA Shows Us Next-Gen Hardware Results, Info

    The S3 Chrome 600 series / VIA VT3456 (VX11) still hasn't been officially announced, but here are some benchmarks of the forthcoming chipset from a VIA Nano quad-core system...

    While good to see their quad core is still coming, having a discrete gpu - chrome 600 - lose at 800x600 against Brazos at 1920x1080 is just terrible. Sadly with the binary though, the chrome with its binary seems competitive to brazos on mesa.

    It's running the game on a 1.2 ghz low power CPU. If you want to compare this to anything try zacate and atom based systems not llano or Trinity

    Fortunately VIA often releases hardware specifications. If there's sufficient interest writing a good open-source driver would be possible.

    There are benchmarks showing the VX900, the previous generation of low power chipsets introduced in 2010, can beat Sandy Bridge graphics in certain configurations.

    That was a Windows benchmark of course. Unfortunately Google can't find that webpage anymore.

    Benchmarks of VIA hardware are varying. Some show the hardware as being faster than Intel Atom and other low-end solutions, while some other benchmarks show it as being painfully slow.
