Whether the issues are a result of poor drivers or defective hardware is unknown. Savage supported S3’s S3TC texture compression, a hardware transform savagr lighting engine named “S3TL”, and was equipped with a “QuadTexture Engine” capable of a single quad-textured pixel per clock or 2 dual-textured pixels per clock. In earlyS3 retired the Savage3D and released the Savage4 family.

Combined with poor drivers and the chip’s lack of multitexturing support, the Savage3D failed saavge the market.

S3 refined the icn., fixing hardware bugs and streamlining the chip for both cost reduction and performance. S3 would regroup in later years and create the Chrome series. The Savage XP was the first chip announced by the regrouped S3 in They could be equipped with MiB memory. Since you’ve already submitted a review for this product, this submission will be added as an update to your original review.


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 instead of halving its texture fillrate in dual-textured games like Savage 3D. Not only that, but S3TC allowed these much higher quality textures to be rendered with negligible performance impact. Update your nVidia graphics processing unit to the latest drivers. S3’s yield problems forced Hercules to hand pick usable chips from the silicon wafers.

In this respect at least, S3’s economical use of transistors proved highly advantageous. It causes missing textures, errors in geometry and models, and minimal performance benefits.

S3 engineers claimed that the S3TL engine had feature parity with GeForceand that it could render 2. Many of the Savage3D’s savzge were addressed by the Savage 4 chipset.

Only the high-quality texture capability from its S3TC support gave it good mind share with the gaming community.

The mobile version was going to be called AlphaChrome but was otherwise completely identical. However, by continuing with a bandwidth-constraining bit memory bus, S3 guaranteed this graphics card would never be a performance part under bit color.

Development of Savage as a discrete card was discontinued. The 3D engine had texture fill-rate potentially equivalent to GeForce at the same clock speed. Drivers were again an issue with S3’s product; holding back overall performance and causing compatibility issues with software and hardware.

The MX had many similarities to Savage4 but had reduced clocks and added an integrated TV out function with optional Macrovision.
