I've heard of them and used them. Jaton makes utter crap imho. I've never found a quality Jaton product from modems to video cards.

Hey.. at least they didn't dress her up like a mermaid and slap THAT picture on the 6800 series :thup:

I would be buying s3's delta chrome if that were the case. Even the US site has some super cheese people for the WOW factor. Or maybe everyone looks that odd when they are suprised...

Personally, I find Jaton as a cheap company, but I cannot vouche for their quality, as I never have or will buy their products.

I can get their 6800ultra for like 150-200 AUD cheaper.. so i thought i'd just ask who knows about their cards..

and seriously.. luckily they didn't dress her up like a mermaid and put it on the card.... they'd go bankrupt after this model of the card..

s3?? haven't heard of them.. any links?

s3 makes the Trident series and they have a newer line of DX9 cards. They can't compete with the Nvidia and ATi setups but can kinda get the job done on a low-end-system scale.

and how's your jaton going? i don't think it'll be a good overclocker... but if u getting a 6800 now i don't think u'll need to ... but just asking the reliability of the cards.. any problems?
