What is aS3 Graphics Unichrome Graphics core??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, need some help.

I am looking to buy this motherboard to get my son , which is 8 years old a better pc and barebones of course. But I ran into this motherboard
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=M452-2628

What I like to know is what is a "S3 Graphics Unichrome Graphics core"? I mean I know it is a intergrated video, but how many mb's is it?

What is it compared to??

The barebone system I am looking at will cost me less then $360.00 shipped. So I think it will work out well, but I just like to know about that video memory ect.

Thanks all

I'd expect it to have 32MB shared.
But I suggest that you do not buy this for the GPU, it lags in Flight Simulator 98... I would look for something else... It would be best to get the video card separate.
