S3 Chrome S27 PCI Express Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Quiet videocards always make the best options for a HTPC, and the S3 Chrome S27 videocard certainly gets a few marks on this front.

Benchmarks: Doom 3

Doom 3

Source: id Software

At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times and with the third run being recorded.

S3 Chrome S27 14

In HQ mode with the resolution set to 1024x768, the S3 Chrome S27 provides decent framerates. If we go above this, the processing load becomes too great for the videocard and its 128MB of GDDR3 memory.
