Since they stopped updating drivers almost 10 years ago – I am surprised they lasted this long.

The latest one I can find is dated August 16, though that may not be the actual release date. This page was last edited on 29 Mayat 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.

Its innovative feature-set included the following:. Already have an account? For example, a particular Windows driver might support only Ati Radeon cards, while the Linux driver supports all Ati cards. Again you have been marvelous, thanks isn’t enough.

S3 designed these chips for notebooks, but they were also sold as budget AGP graphics cards. I can’t get it back to that point. They’ve also started to update the drivers at least the latest chips a little more frequently. Do you already have an account? 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 pixels per clock.


Have you found any later ones? Unfortunately for S3, deliveries of the Savage3D were hampered by poor manufacturing yields. Sign in Already have an account?

These should provide a good improvement over the built-in video of your motherboard. Join the community here. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Would installing Win98 make my problems go away? Of course it installs a generic driver, otherwise you would never have a screen working to do anything, including when you first set up PC.

I’m also not sure of which is the better 3D performer – grapbics S3 or the Voodoo 2’s. S3’s yield problems forced Hercules to hand pick usable chips from the silicon wafers. Typically increasing the speed by lowering teh values will most likely result in more video noise rather than less. Again thanks for all the help sb.

Unfortunately S3TL does not function properly. It does not show up as an error in ‘problem devices’. The S3 chip is built into the ‘northbridge’ of your motherboard chipset and it uses a ‘shared memory’ UMA scheme for gdaphics video memory. GF4MX would definitely prosaavage a better choice. Or, when in the Device Manager panel right click on Display Adapters and select Scan for Hardware Changes and then show the wizard where the driver file is located.

I normally only travel with my little Asus prrosavage but the screen is too small, so this time I travelled with both laptops, and the big one does not want to know!!!!! An AGP card should work fine and improve the situation quite a bit though there probably isn’t much of a difference between a Voodoo PCI card and the AGP version from what I’ve read about 3dfx products.
