Default S3 Graphics hops on the GPGPU bandwagon

Nvidia and AMD have both invested plenty of resources in general-purpose GPU computing, and—especially in Nvidia's case—a fair amount of PR hype surrounds the whole subject. Eager to get in that spotlight, S3 Graphics has now released an application that demonstrates the GPGPU capabilities of its latest graphics processors.

Dubbed S3FotoPro, the application essentially harnesses GPU power to pretty up 2D images. S3 claims its Chrome 400-series GPUs handle the app's algorithms "magnitudes (>100x) of times faster than the latest CPUs in the market today."
