Fortunately, there were significant features added to stay in touch with the rapid development. S3 went through restructuring which probably delayed following Savage XP chip too much. In spring S3 came with Savage4 and considering what it was, it showed quite a muscle and was actually selling well.

Please submit your review for S3 Inc. Unreal runs, but with proper lighting Trio3D gives up on texturing, so I tested flat shaded.

That trip3d the only technical deficiency of last “decelerator” incarnation. Advertisements or commercial links. You are logged in as. Similar color problems are ruining Formula 1 and smaller troubles are seen in Falcon 4. Video textures in Mortal Kombat 3 are suddenly missing.


S3 Graphics Trio3D/2X (/) (Windows 9X/ME) Driver – TechSpot

Click on the following links for the driver package readme info: How are games on Trio3D, how did the support for lnc blending modes helped? Good for geeks, but completely out of place in Savage suffered from poor drivers as well, but it trio33d the right path.

The posting of advertisements, profanity, or personal attacks is prohibited. S3 came out of the closet and pulled back multiplicative alpha blending support that first Trio3D was failing in and old Virge could not do either. While S3 lives till today, owned by HTC, they have remained silent since and nobody really believes they could ever make it back. It was an adequate budget 3D chip, but corporate world might respond better to continuation of Trio line rather than product clearly made for games.

Drivers for 2X are distinctively different and surprisingly compatible with some modern 3d programs. After the release of last Virge in summer ofout featured and outperformed since day tri3od, S3 was going to have a tough time because their next generation architecture was still one year away.

Even 3DMark runs – somewhat. Enter the e-mail address of the recipient Add your own personal message:
