Well, I did not try plucking the heatsink off the Savage4 chip, but I guess that the heatsink is bonded by the normal paste like grey thermal compound, not like others which are bonded by adhesive so strong they could survive an earthquake intact! It causes missing textures, errors in geometry and models, and minimal performance benefits. Unfortunately, the transition from this mock-up 3D accelerator market to the powerful 3D industry of today was ill made by S3, and the company faded into the shadows not to be heard from for quite some time. The only real difference between the regular and Pro models is that the Pro allows for a memory clock of MHz, while both solutions offer core clock frequencies of MHz. The core also was un-overclockable as that portion was shaded in the PowerStrip options In other words, disabled.

Final Reality has quite a nice set of screenshots during testing, unfortunately, telling the image quality between the RIVA TNT chipset against the S is very much like telling the difference between the two ants crawling across my table right now!
Otherwise, operate the computer in a air-conditioned room without the casing on, savae pretty much solved the problem since the S kept locking up every 15 minutes into my Half-Life game grrr!
This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available. 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. Contrary to what was originally thought, the S does not feature a TV-out or digital flat panel out port. Sdrm could be equipped with MiB memory.
The Savage4 Pro runs at a core clock speed of MHz, and because of the relatively cool operating temperature at MHz, Diamond saved a buck or two by refraining from outfitting the card with anything other than a simple passive heatsink. Within Direct3D titles such as Shogo: On or before Fri.

Views Read Edit View history. Like the Diamond tradition, the S is “manual-less”.
Add to watch list. S3’s yield problems forced Hercules to hand pick usable chips from the silicon wafers. Glendale, California, United States.

S3 refined the chip, fixing hardware bugs and streamlining the chip for both cost reduction and performance. Drivers were again an issue with S3’s product; holding back overall performance and causing compatibility issues with software and hardware.

Diamond needs to spend more time re-considering that feature! The default Diamond applications started up together with the system and the most annoying thing about it is whenever you left click on a blank portion of the desktop, the Windows 98 Start Menu pops up.
The MX had many similarities to Savage4 but had reduced clocks and added an integrated TV out function with optional Macrovision.
It was never sold, only prototypes exist. The memory chips being used is the Mira 7ns type.
doamond Other than those differences, the S is your run of the mill Savage4 board, however in order to establish any major differences let’s take a closer look at the card itself. An item that has been used previously. Something else woth mentioning was that the contents of the box were pretty firm and didn’t rattle about as I brought it home.
Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing. The RAM clips 2 out of 3 are quite inaccessible. As where indicated PII would mean I’m overclocking my system to 5. With Diamond’s desktop lineup being composed entirely by solutions from NVIDIA and S3, there must be sdrram incredible level of attention paid to making sure that their own products don’t compete with one another.

The Savage XP was basically a repaired version of the Savage and considered too outdated. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
