Via Technologies Inc.'s graphics unit said Tuesday that it had inked a deal with Sony Computer Entertainment to provide a key graphics technology for Sony's upcoming handheld games console.

S3 Graphics, Co. Ltd. said it will provide its S3TC texture-compression technology to the PlayStation Portable, Sony's handheld game player expected next year. The license agreement will reinforce S3 Graphics' S3TC texture compression technology as the industry standard for both PC and game console graphics, S3 said.

S3TC enables a high level of compression while maintaining texture detail and quality, the company said, a critical element in memory-starved portable games.

"We are pleased to adopt S3 Graphics S3TC technology in PlayStation Portable," added Masayuki Chatani, corporate executive and chief technical officer of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., in a statement. "S3TC technology allows PlayStation Portable software developers to take advantage of very high quality texture compression technology and benefit from a range of proven tools and libraries."
