Product Overviews Index

   
S3 targets its multimedia accelerators at three primary market segments: the Home PC, the Desktop PC and the Mobile PC. Working closely with its key customers in each of those areas, the company offers exciting products that meet the needs of the individual markets.

[S3 Products for the Home]
[Home] The home market is one of the fastest growing markets in the PC segment. With the advent of 3-D games, MPEG, full-motion video, increasingly powerful CPUs and Internet access, consumers are clamoring for multimedia-enabled PCs. S3's products facilitate high performance video, graphics and audio capabilities for this high-growth market segment.


[S3 Products for Desktop Systems]
[Desktop] The corporate desktop is the largest market segment for the PC. Product lifecycles are longer in this segment, and software compatibility from one generation to another is absolutely critical. S3's Trio64V+TM graphics/video accelerator is the largest volume shipping accelerator product today to the corporate desktop market. Future generations of S3 products will be software compatible with the Trio64V+ chips, making it easy for system OEMs to increase the functionality of their systems.


[S3 Products for Mobile Systems]
[Mobile] Innovations in multimedia I.C.s, such as S3's recently announced Aurora64V+TM accelerator, are enabling notebook PC manufacturers to bring desktop performance and functionality to their products. In addition, trends in flat-panel displays including higher resolutions, higher color depths and larger displays, are increasing the demand for 64-bit graphics on the notebook platform. S3's Aurora64V+ graphics/video accelerator offers S3's unique DuoViewTM technology, enabling the notebook PC to drive multiple displays simultaneously with either the same or different images. Display choices include LCDs, CRTs or even T.V.s.
