Fresh3D heeft een preview gepost van de S3 Savage4, die o.a. zal worden gebruikt in Diamond's Stealth III. De specs van de Savage4 zijn op zich vrij goed, maar met een fillrate van 140Mpix/s en een kloksnelheid van 143MHz loopt-ie wel weer zwaar achter op de V3 en TNT2. Hier wat info van Fresh3D:
So how well should we expect Savage 4 to fare? Fairly well (har har), I would imagine, but you must consider what S3 is up against: 3DFX's Voodoo3 will be hitting shelves any day now, and the higher-end models (3500 and up) are expected to shatter everything we know about high frame rates. NVIDIA's TNT2 is my favourite of the pack, and stands a chance of ousting 3DFX as the king of frame rates, and they're throwing 32-bit rendering into the mix. ATI's Rage 128 is making waves right now, and you can bet they have something else up their sleeves to offset the next-generation accelerator wars. Matrox's G400 is also going to be announced soon, but I don't expect them to gain any market share with this one. The G200 was nice and all, but Matrox cannot do it on their own.
