The memory chips being used is the Mira 7ns type. Diamond Multimedia, a company reknown for its multimedia products has a new addition to its Stealth family. This page was last edited on 29 Mayat When S3 finally returned to the scene looking for their old pals at Diamond to welcome them back with open arms, the bitter rejection of S3’s diamnd the time flagship Savage3D design by Diamond put the once gigantic video manufacturer in their place, back at the drawing boards.

Unfortunately S3TL does not function properly. Definitely not a buy for 3D intensive gamers!
Views Read Edit View history. It was never sold, only prototypes exist. The 3D engine diamonv texture fill-rate potentially equivalent to GeForce at the same clock speed.
Also, the Stealth III ;ro was launched on the very day that Diamond lauched its Viper V based on nVidia’s Riva TNT2 as well, however the difference in the pricing of the V and the S is about or so dollars, thereby making the S a bit more attractive than its more expensive counterparts.
This is a problem which most users will face, how ssavage4 you exactly savagee4 it? Otherwise, operate the computer in a air-conditioned room without the casing on, that pretty much solved the problem since the S kept locking up every 15 minutes into my Half-Life game grrr!
Measured in Reality Marks. It seems that I have to open one end to get the video card and the other end to the manuals and CDs, nothing difficult if the card is yours, since you simply rip open the package, something difficult for me since this is merely a loan!
S3 Savage – Wikipedia
Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. S3 refined the chip, fixing hardware bugs and streamlining the chip for both cost reduction and performance. Thermal Issues Yes, this is one of the most cruicial portions of this review, as seen from the images above, the Savage4 sports a heatsink without a fan courtesy of E3 S3 engineers claimed that the S3TL engine had feature parity with GeForceand that it could render 2.
The first thing you would notice about the cards is the lack of a fan. I would have loved to push this card savag4 little higher and see por results! According prp Vijay’s tests the Spectra manages Savage was a product-line of PC graphics chipsets designed by S3. Installation of the S is basically peanuts like installing any card, simply slide it in and fasten the screw! The first in Diamond’s Stealth line of graphics accelerators were based on chipsets provided from one of the hot shots of the time, a very well known company named S3.
However if you intend to use TV out merely for bragging to your friends “Oh, I’ve got a Sony 29” monitor at home! The mobile savagee4 was going to be called AlphaChrome but was otherwise completely identical.
However the OpenGL performance really proved to be an eye-opener! Only the high-quality texture capability from its S3TC support gave it good mind share with the gaming community. Although the benchmarks do not show the RIVA TNT scorching ahead of the Savage4, it is quite enough to prove that S3 still hasn’t got what it takes to compete in the high-end video card sector yet. The Savage XP was basically a repaired version of the Savage and considered too outdated.
S3 designed these chips for notebooks, but they were also sold as budget AGP graphics cards.
For the uninitiated, Mira is a subsidiary of Mitsubishi, so it’s not some unknown brand. Because I stongly believe that benchmarks are useless numbers without comparison to others, I will be comparing the S to e3 Asus TNT not overclocked as well as the Canopus SpectraPE Rseults obtained from Vijay’s Review and give the S a good run for its money!
They could be equipped with MiB memory.
Within the huge S box, lies a packet, containing the manuals and the card wrapped in an electrostatic bag divided into 2 levels.
