I have no idea why VIA chose that particular numbering. 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. Intel VGA driver v7. I have no idea if the S3 ProSavage changes its behavior with this setting or not. Get the one that is 4. I don’t know if you’ll be able to find a better driver. I changed drivers to that one, and my XP took them.

It’s also possible that you may have to purchase the retail version to get those controls if they exist at all. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Already have an account? Register a new account.

Thank You for Submitting a Reply,! I’ve heard a number of people say that the Voodoo family has better video output circuitry which results in a crisper image than many NVidia cards. It would clearly be faster, even in 2D, than my Voodoo3 right? GF4MX would definitely be a better choice.

I got this to get ready for CMBB thanks again. I’d suggest an AGP card based on a NVidia chip, but I don’t know what kind of additional money you want to spend at this point.


I think when I installed XP, I had a choice of 3 kinds of cards that all looked the same. Ddd run the AGP version of the card myself and it has done fine just downsampled the background textures and grass.

Windows 98 might improve the graphics quality, but that is strictly a guess. I like the TV out on the card I mentioned.

I don’t know if you’ll be able to find a better driver. Would installing Win98 make my problems go away? However the other problem is driver quality, which you’re seeing here.

Posted August 24, Not only that, but S3TC allowed these much higher quality textures to be rendered with d3 performance impact. I have no idea why VIA chose that particular numbering. The Savage4 series’ single cycle trilinear filtering and S3TC texture compression created a 3D card with exceptional image quality. Yeah I will not do another vid card, I must think this can work.

So this “great” system is still gonna be bad, wow. The Savage XP was the first chip announced by the regrouped S3 in Update your nVidia graphics dde unit to the latest drivers.


Tough decision on the card. The latest one I can find is dated August 16, though that may not be the actual release date. I have a new PC with Xp and the vid card is listed above.

Advertisements or commercial links. Again thanks for all the help sb. That’s what I wish I could redo. I will probably do one of the above and just leave it at that. 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.
