VIA S3 Graphics ProSavage8

Onboard graphics chip in the VIA KN266 chipset for Athlon CPUs and PN266 for Pentium 4 CPUs.

For 3D games not suited because of lacking performance and bad drivers.

Because of the missing pixel shaders (no DirectX 9 support in hardware), the Aero Glass interface of Windows Vista (and Windows 7) is not supported.
