The new chip was meant to debut as the Avalanche3D card by the end of and in the meantime a third development of Glaze3D codenamed Hammer was already promising DirectX 9 support. Prototype Glaze3D boards were made with the initial run of chips, but 3D Labs Savage 4 came to a halt when Infineon stopped producing embedded DRAM in due to mounting financial loses.

Lacking a manufacturing partner Bitboys finally 3D Labs Savage 4 up on desktop graphics and instead focused on mobile graphics IP. BitBoys' exit and AMD's blunder: Soon after, ATI and Nokia entered into a long term strategic partnership.

The latter continues to produce 3D Labs Savage 4 under the name Adreno an anagram of Radeon as an integral component of the hugely popular Snapdragon SoC. Intel launched its first and last so far commercial discrete 3D desktop gaming chip back in January The i traces its origins from a NASA flight simulation project for the Apollo space program by General Electric and later sold to Martin Marietta who merged with Lockheed three years later. The Sega Model 3 arcade board featured two of the Pro graphics systems.

Intel bought 20 per cent of Real3D in January, a month before the i launched. By this stage Intel had already purchased a per cent of Chips and Technologies in July Performance and image quality were acceptable, with performance roughly matching high-end offerings of the 3D Labs Savage 4 year. A few boards made it out of the manufacturing plant, but like the i, instead made it into integrated graphics chipsets. Many of the staff subsequently moved over to Intel or ATI. ATI gave the Rage Pro a makeover in Februarywhich basically consisted of renaming the card Rage Pro Turbo and delivering a set of drivers highly optimized for synthetic benchmarks.

Drivers from beta2 onwards improved gaming performance. Supply was less than ideal for the retail channel until into the new year, however, which effectively killed any chance ATI had to stamp their mark on the gaming 3D Labs Savage 4 as they had done with the OEM market.

Unfortunately for ATI, many games and the hardware fit-out of many users at the time were geared for bit color. Image quality was much the same as the mainstream competition from S3 and Nvidia, yet still lagged behind that of Matrox. In the end, insurmountable software issues doomed the company to a four-year lifespan. Two months after the i had made a small splash in the graphics market, 3Dfx introduced the Voodoo 2. Like its predecessor, it was a 3D only solution, and while impressive it represented a complex system. The Voodoo Banshee was announced in June but it didn't hit retail for another three months. The revolution that 3dfx had ushered in three years earlier 3D Labs Savage 4 now passing it by.

In raw 3D performance, the Voodoo 2 had no equal, but 3D Labs Savage 4 competition was gaining ground fast. Amid increasing competition from ATI and Nvidia, 3dfx looked to retain a higher profit line by marketing and selling the boards themselves, something that was previously handled by a lengthy list of board partners.

Amid increasing competition from ATI and Nvidia, 3dfx looked to retain a higher profit line by marketing and selling the boards themselves. Even with the reduced specification, the TNT was an impressive card. Its AGP 2x interface allowed for gaming at x and bit color rendering with a bit Z-buffer image depth representation. SGI filed a lawsuit against them on April 9 alleging patent infringement 3D Labs Savage 4 texture mapping. This virtual giveaway of IP is generally regarded as one of the main reasons why SGI roared into bankruptcy at breakneck speed. With the major players in the market dominating the media coverage for the first few months 3D Labs Savage 4 the year, June and July spotlighted two of the fading lights of the industry.

The card proved unable to match the strides in 3D performance Nvidia and ATI were making and as a result the company attempted to reinforce their position in the 2D productivity market instead.

The company decided to exploit the one real weakness afflicting most dedicated gaming cards: The The penalty for the speedy introduction was half-baked drivers, however. Between and the number of graphics vendors who left the industry rose. January saw the release of the SiSa budget business-machine graphics card.


A single pixel pipeline saw to that. Performance was generally in the region of a GeForce 2 MX Gaming on a budget: But not even improved drivers and a reasonable feature set could offset the 3D Labs Savage 4 that it struggled to attain the performance level of the previous generation of cards from 3dfx, Nvidia and ATI.

This cycle was repeated at the end of the year when the 3D Labs Savage 4 launched. These factors were starting to become crucial with game developers and 3dfx continued to disappoint by not delivering on their architectural and feature-set promises.


March also saw Nvidia release the Riva TNT2, including the first of its Ultra branded boards with faster core and memory speeds, while Matrox unveiled the G 3D Labs Savage 4. The ability to drive two monitors via twin display controllers called DualHead by Matrox started a multi-monitor support trend for the company.
