VIA S3G UniChrome Pro II
The S3 Graphics UniChrome Pro II is a DirectX 7 (without T&L) onboard graphics solution (shared memory) of VIA for laptops with VIA C7-M CPU and VX700 North-Bridge, which is intended for office applications and hardly suited for 3D games. There is no Aero support.
The 128-bit 3D graphic core offers hardware DirectX 7 support but without Transform & Lightning (T&L) unit. Two pixel pipelines are able to render two textures per turn with a triangle rate of up to 4.5 million triangles. The pixel filling rate is up to 200 million pixels per second (texel up to 400 millions).
The difference to Unichrome Pro is not precise and partially the Unichrome Pro II is declared as Unichrome Pro.
Inserted in the chipsets: VX7000
Due to the missing pixel shaders (DX9) the video card can not represent Aero Glass of Windows Vista.
