Item056: Graphics Chip Cuff Links - S3 Graphics, GPU
About the Jewelry
This pendant is made from an upcycled 2008 S3 Graphics processor chip. S3 Graphics was a graphics chips company in California that was founded in 1989. Over the years they produced numerous chipsets like the legendary S3 Trio and S3 Savage GPUs. The Chrome 440 was produced in 2008. The Chrome 400 series was codenamed 'Destination'. The chips were manufactured by Fujitsu. The 440 ran at 800MHz and had entry-level graphics capabilities. Because the processor is a Flip Chip, you are looking at the backside of the processor; it’s mounted face down.
Included in the resealable bag:
The 1" chip mounted on stainless steel cuff links (since these are handmade yours may look slightly different than the one pictured here, but satisfaction is guaranteed), and a ChipScapes card that gives information about this jewelry (see the picture).
