PC Benchmarks heeft de Savage 4 kaart van Creative getest. Niet echt een geweldig kaartje zo blijkt; boven 800 x 600 valt de FPS als een plumpudding in elkaar. De texture compression (S3TC) blijft echter zeer mooi. Lees de review hier!
From the previous tests, one might think that the outlook for this card is rather bleak. And you'd be right. However, the CL Savage4 would stand in a much better light when playing games that include full support for S3 Texture Compression. Such games include forthcoming titles from Rage as well as Quake 3 Arena. And there is good reason to think that this card may perform well in Quake 3. For those who may have missed it, here are some benchmarks run by Id software which illustrate that, at least at lower resolutions, the CL Savage4 has the potential to compete well with its competition.
Furthermore, there are situations which don't appear much in benchmark testing where the 32MB on-board memory of the CL Savage4 would give it an advantage over the 16MB cards in its price range. However, given the lack of a game bundle, and the card's lackluster performance overall, I would be hard pressed to recommend this card over a low-end TNT2.
Als je trouwens toch voor een Savage 4 kaart gaat, die van Diamond is dan beter.
