As mentioned earlier, I tried to overclock the card but PowerStrip refused to let me try speeds above 143.2MHz, although I am quite sure that the Mira SDRAMs could handle around or another one.... According to Vijay's tests the Spectra manages 162.0903 MPixels/s and the test results on my system (at 375MHz) indicate 285.0979 MPixels/s, re-running the benchmarks proved useless, for results were around the I've indicated my system as PII-333(S540) when running with the Stealth III S540 and PII-333(V3400TNT) when running with my Asus V3400TNT/TV video card.
The default Diamond applications started up together with the system and the most annoying thing about it is whenever you left click on a blank portion of the desktop, the Windows Thermal Issues Yes, this is one of the most cruicial portions of this review, as seen from the images above, the Savage4 sports a heatsink without a fan (courtesy of Diamond)! A quick check with PowerStrip showed that the memory was running at 143.2MHz, its rated speed, and PowerStrip would not allow me to either increase the memory speed or its core This is a problem which most users will face, how do you exactly cool it?

I don't know when :). According to the addendum, these jumpers are meant for AGP 4X, and all the 3 jumpers would have to be shorted to enable AGP 4X. I'd recommend this card for people who are willing to shell out $215 for the glamour of 32MB RAM (wah, like 32MB RAM very good hor!) and of course, for those website here S3 have developed no further drivers since the Win2000/XP compatable Savage4 drivers provided here: http://www.s3graphics.com/en/resourc....jsp#id_395drv As chorro mentioned above, VirtualDr's sister site WinDrivers.com's premium services are now pay, but the forums
Also notice that unlike other 32MB cards which sport 16 X 2MB RAM chips, this sports 4 X 8MB RAM chips, I guess this cuts down on the PCB, but increases Otherwise, operate the computer in a air-conditioned room without the casing on, that pretty much solved the problem since the S540 kept locking up every 15 minutes into my Half-Life game I wil keep coming back for sure."Eric Smalter, Boston, MA "WOW!
