Lets go to Quake 2 now: Rise of the Triad modding site! Surprisingly it runs extremely well. I tried it with Quake 3 and couldn’t feel a speed change but there were graphics issues that appeared. Here things are not so simple.

S3 engineers claimed that the S3TL engine had feature parity with GeForceand that it could render 2. Its innovative feature-set included the following:. Has anyone used one of their Chrome cards? Lets go to Quake 2 now: Savage4 supported the then-new AGP 4X although at the older 3.

So I decide to update them. You have to at least acknowledge, however, that the S3 card is at least working for a change.

They do all need to be closed for 4x, I believe. Views Read Edit View history. This site hosts no abandonware. I download the Savxge NT drivers newest one with Blastercontrol 3.


In earlyS3 retired the Savage3D and released the Savage4 family. But when Savage is overclocked than it is better than overclocked Savage 4 The game is even fully playable at higher resulutions with maximum settings on both Savage 4 savge Savage when overclocked.

S3 Savage Discussion about old PC hardware. Savage supported S3’s S3TC texture compression, a hardware transform and lighting engine named “S3TL”, and was equipped with a “QuadTexture Engine” capable of a single quad-textured pixel per clock or 2 dual-textured savqge per clock. I’ve been wondering about why driver development just died off for this card.

None of their 3D hardware ever amounted to anything.

S3 Graphics graphics processors. Once the resolution increases, the Savage drops to well below the performance of the GeForce in bit color.

S3 Savage 4 with Windows XP?

Quake 3, on the other hand, runs rather ssvage. Not only that, but S3TC allowed these much higher quality textures to be rendered with negligible performance impact. Thanks to an old post of leileilol’s viewtopic.

It’s probably similar to what Glide gets you with a Voodoo compared to D3D. RG, you have one of these [S3 Savage ] yet? Also, Inno3D I believe was the only other manufacturer that made a Savage card. Maybe I saavage the latest drivers? From the wiki, it looks like its slightly better than a TNT Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. The Savage XP was the first chip announced by the regrouped S3 in S3 Savage Discussion about old PC hardware.


S3 refined the chip, fixing hardware bugs and streamlining the chip for both cost reduction and performance. Savage was a product-line of PC graphics chipsets designed sp S3. Just because it doesn’t work really well doesn’t mean you aren’t missing out!!!
