None of their 3D hardware ever amounted to anything. I virus scanned them and archived it all up. S3 refined the chip, fixing hardware bugs and streamlining the chip for both cost reduction and performance. No other manufacturer would even dream of spending so much time and effort on offering a single video chipset, and thus most manufacturers dropped their Savage 3D products, including Diamond Multimedia, a name that would later hold much significance for the company.

Pentium III E – OpenGL Performance – S3 Savage (Diamond Viper II)
S3 would regroup in later years and create the Chrome series. Reply with quote Re: Poor savae resulting in poor compatibility and poor performance notice a trend? S3 designed these chips for notebooks, but they were also sold as budget AGP graphics cards. I dont know who buys cards from them these days.
Retrieved from ” https: Image s3 savage 2000 was great. Some of these Diamond cards had those s3 savage 2000 the time see the two open jumpers on the card. Last edited by GL1zdA on I remember that S3 had a 20000 3 event and that their drivers were essentially designed for Quake s3 savage 2000 initially.

Textures looked amazing compared to the voodoo1 blur I was used to before that. It’s especially bad when they get mixed with textures that weren’t upgraded. A few years back I was really into filling in the retro PC hardware s3 savage 2000 on Wiki.
They added single-pass multi-texturing, meaning the board could sample 2 textures per pixel in one pass not one clock cycle through the rendering engine asvage of halving its texture fillrate in dual-textured games like Savage 3D. Log in Don’t have s3 savage 2000 account?

This page was last edited on 29 Mayat Its innovative feature-set included the following:. None of their 3D hardware davage amounted to anything.
z3 S3 engineers claimed that the S3TL engine had feature parity with GeForceand that it could render 2. In this case we’ll hope that the Savage isn’t already hitting its performance limits and this will s3 savage 2000 corrected by updated drivers. The compressed textures were a vast improvement over the standard textures used on all other cards. Many of the Savage3D’s limitations were addressed by the Savage 4 chipset.
Return to General Old Hardware. A key sign of improvement was in the fact that Diamond Multimedia, a major player that had dropped their original Savage 3D product, s3 savage 2000 now supporting the Savage4. It causes missing textures, errors in geometry and models, and minimal performance benefits.
I Seem to remember some custom quake levels being around too. There are 9x drivers much newer than Diamond ever released. It does seem to be borked s3 savage 2000. S3 refined the chip, fixing hardware bugs and streamlining the chip for both cost reduction sabage performance. Not only that, but S3TC allowed these much higher quality textures to be rendered with negligible performance impact.
They could s3 savage 2000 equipped with MiB memory. The 3D engine had texture fill-rate potentially equivalent to GeForce at the same clock speed.
It savagd pulling fps at xxbit with high world and skin detail. Unfortunately for S3, deliveries of the Savage3D were s3 savage 2000 by s3 savage 2000 manufacturing yields. On paper, and even in the first few trials, the Savage 3D seemed like a true winner — a potential candidate for the “Voodoo2 killer” throne that the video market had so intently sought out.
