Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux? I got this to get ready for CMBB thanks again. The MX had many similarities to Savage4 but had reduced clocks and added an integrated TV out function with optional Macrovision. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. An AGP card should work fine and improve the situation quite a bit though there probably isn’t much of a difference between a Voodoo PCI card and the AGP version from what I’ve read about 3dfx products.

Windows 98 might improve the graphics quality, but that is strictly a guess.

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. Are you new to LinuxQuestions. The only reason I looked at it, the 2nd column, was the CD the seller gave me for the MB has a folder with that chipset on it.

They just couldn’t support all of the features and the drivers were often buggy, had poor performance or suffered graphical glitches. 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.

So this “great” system is still gonna be bad, wow. I got this to get ready for CMBB thanks again. The only drivers I saw for you system have not been updated in almost 10 years.

I got this to get ready for CMBB. I’m also not sure of which is the better 3D performer – the S3 or the Voodoo 2’s. I think I picked this P4 one. I graaphics a new PC with Xp and the vid card is listed above. Sign in Already have an account?

A thing to consider. S3 refined the chip, fixing hardware bugs and streamlining the chip for both cost reduction and performance. Would installing Win98 make my problems go away?

The compressed textures were a vast improvement over the standard textures used on all other cards. The Savage XP was the first chip announced by the regrouped S3 in You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.

If you want to experiment, you could try PowerStrip 3.

I’ve run the AGP version of the card myself and it has done fine just downsampled the background textures and grass. However, by continuing with a bandwidth-constraining bit memory bus, S3 guaranteed this graphics card would never be a performance part under bit color.


The ‘S3 P4M’ is the correct video chip designation for your setup. Didn’t work, but nice to update the driver. Of course it installs a generic driver, otherwise you would never have a screen working to do anything, including when you first set up PC.

They could be equipped with MiB memory. Tough decision on the card.

Posted August 24, Linux – Hardware This forum is for Hardware issues. What i didn’t like on my old box was slow load times of the turns and the time to generate the movies on BIG games.

Or, when in the Device Manager panel right click on Display Adapters and select Scan for Hardware Changes and then show the wizard where the driver file is located.
