In this respect at least, S3’s economical use of transistors proved highly advantageous. Drivers were again an issue with S3’s via s3 prosavage ddr holding back overall performance and causing compatibility issues with software and hardware. The Savage4 series’ single cycle trilinear filtering and S3TC texture compression created a 3D card with exceptional image quality.
Via s3 prosavage ddr was never sold, only prototypes exist. Savage was a product-line of PC graphics chipsets designed by S3. Not only that, but S3TC allowed these much higher quality textures to be rendered with negligible performance impact.

The Savage Via s3 prosavage ddr was basically a repaired version of the Savage and considered too outdated. Savage4 was an evolution of Prosagage 3D technology in many ways. S3’s yield problems forced Hercules to hand pick usable chips from the silicon wafers. The mobile version was going to be called AlphaChrome but was otherwise completely identical.
Unfortunately S3TL does not function via s3 prosavage ddr. VIA Technologies x86 processors. S3 engineers claimed that the S3TL engine had feature parity with GeForceand that it could render 2. Its innovative feature-set included the following:. In earlyS3 retired the Savage3D and released the Savage4 family. S3 designed these chips for notebooks, but they were also sold as budget AGP graphics cards. 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.
Only one via s3 prosavage ddr board-vendor, Hercules, made any real effort to ship a Savage3D product.

However, by continuing with a bandwidth-constraining bit memory bus, S3 guaranteed this graphics card would never be a performance part under bit color. S3 would regroup in later years and create the Chrome series.
Viw supported the then-new AGP 4X although at the older 3. Many of the Savage3D’s limitations were addressed by the Savage 4 chipset. It causes missing textures, errors via s3 prosavage ddr geometry and models, and minimal performance benefits. This page was last edited on 29 Mayat The 3D engine had texture fill-rate potentially dddr to GeForce at the same clock speed.
Savage supported S3’s S3TC texture compression, a hardware transform and lighting engine named “S3TL”, and was equipped with a “QuadTexture Engine” capable vka a single quad-textured pixel per clock or 2 dual-textured pixels per clock.
The compressed textures were a via s3 prosavage ddr improvement over the standard textures used on all other cards.
