An Overclocked GeForce 7900 GTX From PNY

VIA At CeBIT 2006

At CeBIT 2006 VIA obviously aimed at Chrome. At least it would be hard to find products without a touch of this "metal".

Despite the fact that Chrome is a common name for a whole series of products, VIA motherboards also come with it onboard - by means of integrated graphics.

On the photo you can see a K8M890 motherboard for AMD processors:

This product features VIA Chrome9 IGP integrated graphics and VIA Vinyl AC97 Audio. It's interesting that the demo machine operates under Windows Vista Beta 2.

Another highly integrated solution is K8T890 motherboard for AMD processors featuring S3 Chrome S27 integrated graphics (Axper XN-S27256D).

Around the VIA's booth we can see a scattering of discrete S3 Chrome cards designed for PCIe systems:

Next you can see a PT880 Ultra based system with integrated graphics. This one is meant for Intel Pentium 4, Pentium 4 XE and Celeron D processors with 400 to 1066 MHz FSB:

For those who need more than two monitors the company offers this PT880 Ultra based system with two graphics cards that enable to connect 3 monitors at once:

Finally, for mobile solutions VIA offers C7-M with features similar to those of VIA C7: the same 20W peak power, 4W in average and 100mW in standby. The difference is that VIA C7-M bases on CoolStream architecture that provides effective cooling for this small (21x21mm, nanoBGA2) crystal in notebooks. Next you can see its key features and ready products on it:
