The MX had many similarities to Savage4 but had reduced clocks and added an integrated TV out function with optional Macrovision. Yes, I know about the wrong column. The Savage XP was the first chip announced by the regrouped S3 in It states that the chipset is a KM VT Combined with poor drivers and the chip’s lack of multitexturing support, the Savage3D failed in the market.

I hope you guys work on commision. Typically smaller numbers for these settings indicate faster times. Savage4 supported the then-new AGP 4X although at the older 3.

Prosqvage reading the wrong column on the VIA page. The next step would be to uninstall your current video drivers and install an older version.

By using this site, you agree to the Terms prosvage Use and Privacy Policy. Yeah I will not do another vid card, I must think this can work. Supposedly the ProSavage 8 was made ‘expressly for Windows XP’ according to VIA’s product documentation which really means nothing – you always want your hardware to appear to be optimized for the latest and greatest software from a marketing standpoint.


I’d guess however that even prosaavage Voodoo3 would be faster than the ProSavage 8 under any version of Windows. It’s also possible that you may have to purchase the retail version to get those controls if they exist at all.

This package supports the following driver models: That all list different flavors of the S3 DDR etc. It was never sold, only prototypes exist. I think when I installed XP, I had a choice prosaavage 3 kinds of cards that all looked the same.

The chipset showing up is the Intel version. Here’s some charts from Tom’s Hardwarethough they don’t compare the very latest ATI’s or any of the 3dfx Voodoos, it will give you some sort of reference. I keep on misreading stuff in this post. In the 30min I have had this card it, it seems my whole system is slower, even clicking around not in a game. That’s what I wish I could redo. I have no idea if the S3 ProSavage changes its behavior with this setting or not.


S3’s yield problems forced Hercules to hand pick usable chips from the silicon wafers. The XP driver is v.

Posted August 24, 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. S3 would regroup in later years and create prosavvage Chrome series.

I wouldn’t say that your upgrade has been useless, but built-in video typically has all sorts of performance compromises or driver quality issues. Usually leaving most of the settings at ‘SPD’ is probably appropriate especially since some aggresive memory setting may not allow your computer to finish booting or become unstable. Windows 98 might improve the graphics quality, but that is strictly a guess.
