S3 OmniChrome graphics card detailed

By on
Today S3 is taking the wraps off OmniChrome, an answer to ATI's All-in-Wonder and NVIDIA's Personal Cinema. Based on a DeltaChrome S4 Nitro graphics card, OmniChrome adds a TV tuner and video decoder chip to enable video capture and PVR applications. Given DeltaChrome's native HDTV output support and less-than-stellar gaming performance, the PVR/home theater PC market seems like a natural market for S3 to pursue. More information on the new cards can be found at TR.

Since I don't live in the US, I don't get to see mainstream offerings in retail stores as often as I would like to, many of you do however. So I wonder, have you seen much action from S3 (DeltaChrome) lately in retail products? As far as I can tell, the only market in which S3 products have been broadly featured is laptops.
