Bij Thresh's FiringSquad hebben ze het verslag gepost van de S3 Savage 2000 Party. Ze hebben er een aantal Quake3 benchmarks gedraaid en vergeleken met de TNT2 Ultra en de GeForce 256. Hieronder de uitslag:
It's too soon to judge the Savage2000. Right now, the current numbers place the card slightly above the TNT2U but behind the GeForce in most settings. We're already seeing the Savage take the high quality scores even with beta drivers while only clocked at 125MHz. The card looks very promising, but S3 has to improve the drivers and get the clock speed closer to 150MHz or 175Mhz before we can start calling it a GeForce killer.
Keep in mind, Diamond maintains that the Savage2000 isn't meant to go head to head against the GeForce 256. While GeForce 256 cards retail for around $250, the Diamond Viper II will retail at $199. We're already seeing Creative Labs Annihilator cards going for $208 on Pricewatch, and we still don't know how low the Viper II price will fall below its $199 MSRP. We would guess somewhere around $150.
Voor concrete benchmark scores moet je hier wezen.
