S3 Graphics Savage MX-IX (290-298) (Windows 9X/ME) v.7.15.30

S3 engineers claimed that the S3TL engine had feature parity with GeForceand that it could render 2. Select type of offense: Unfortunately S3TL does not function properly.

The mobile version was going to be called AlphaChrome but was otherwise completely identical. The compressed textures were a vast improvement over the standard textures used on all other cards. In earlyS3 retired the Savage3D and released the Savage4 family. Login or create an account to post a review.

S3 would regroup in later years and create the Chrome series. Drivers were again an issue with S3’s product; holding back overall performance grphics causing compatibility issues with software and hardware. Whether the issues are a result of poor drivers or defective hardware is unknown.


Savage supported S3’s S3TC texture compression, a hardware transform savaage lighting engine named “S3TL”, and was equipped with a “QuadTexture Engine” capable of a single quad-textured pixel per grraphics or 2 dual-textured pixels per clock.

The Savage XP was the first chip announced by the regrouped S3 in Within Direct3D titles such as Shogo: Thank You for Submitting a Reply,! Click here to review our site terms of use.

They added single-pass multi-texturing, meaning the board yraphics sample 2 textures per pixel in one pass savvage one clock cycle through the rendering engine instead of halving its texture fillrate in dual-textured games like Savage 3D.

It causes missing textures, errors in geometry and models, and minimal performance benefits. Not only that, but S3TC allowed these much higher quality textures to be rendered with negligible performance impact.

Note that your submission may not appear immediately on our site. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. S3 refined the chip, fixing hardware bugs and streamlining the chip for both cost reduction and performance. Only one major board-vendor, Hercules, made any real effort to ship a Savage3D product. S3’s yield problems forced Hercules to hand pick usable chips from the silicon wafers. The MX had many similarities to Savage4 but had reduced clocks and added an integrated TV out function with optional Macrovision.
