Hercules Prophet 4800 is approaching
Although neither PowerVR, the development company of the Kyro II, nor the flagship partner Hercules has published an official announcement about the new Kyro II Ultra Chip, the facts about the Hercules Prophet 4800 with this chip are increasing.
Some online shops already have the card in their program as 'soon available'. Sales packaging for the new Prophet is also in circulation in the meantime. The interesting thing here is that the Hercules Prophet 4800 is based on the Kyro II 4800 and not on the Kyro II Ultra according to the packaging. This in turn suggests that PowerVR has developed an improved version of the Kyro II especially for the new Hercules entry-level card. It is not known whether the graphics chip is only used by Hercules and not available to other manufacturers of Kyro-based graphics cards such as Videologic or Inno3D for their own products. The Hercules Prophet 4800 is said to have a core and memory clock of 200 MHz, which, as is well known, can only be changed synchronously with Kyro 2 cards. Except for this increase in the clock rate, the only difference between the Prophet 4800 and the previous graphics card is a new TV encoder chip. Further details are unfortunately still not available.
