Are you sure it's s3? It's IIRC a SiS-Chipset. See
Another best-value PC solution presented at IDF is Dell’s Affordable PC
(APC) EC280, which is developed by SiS and Dell for the emerging market.
The Dell EC280 adopts the SiSM661GX chipset to support Intel FSB533MHz
CPU and DDR 333 memory.

SiSM661GX is driven by xorg-x11-drv-sis
