Fremont, California, July 24, 2002 - S3 Graphics, Inc. today announced that Toshiba Corporation has chosen the SuperSavage/IXc - 166 mobile graphics processor for its top-of-the-line Tecra 9000 series notebook computers utilizing the mobile Intel Pentium 4 processor. The SuperSavage/IXc - 166 hardware combined with 'Commercial Grade' software and support is an enabling solution for high performance, high reliability graphics and display implementations that Toshiba's commercial clients demand.
The SuperSavage/IXc - 166 graphics processor offers enhanced 2D/3D performance through advanced features including single cycle multi texturing, trilinear filtering, specular lighting, diffuse shading plus vertex and table fog. Smooth DVD playback is achieved using optimized hardware motion compensation. Industry defining Duoview+ capabilities allow various configurations of multiple displays supporting extended desktops, giving users greater flexibility and productivity boost in commercial applications.
To complement this rich feature set, the S3 Graphics SuperSavage/IXc - 166 is designed to minimize power consumption without compromising performance, helping to maximize battery life and thus improve the user experience. Support for ACPI power management modes further enhances efficiency and low heat dissipation means active cooling is not required, making the SuperSavage perfect in light of the current trend towards long battery life for notebooks.
"The announcement of the Tecra 9000 P4 series notebooks from Toshiba further solidifies S3 Graphics as the leader in the high-end commercial notebook graphics arena. The incredibly low box-line defect levels for the SuperSavage product line is one of the key factors in customers such as Toshiba choosing S3G over our competitors in the mission critical, commercial notebook space. Our combination of performance, unbeatable quality and world class support is a compelling solution for our customers who need future-proof, enterprise corporate platforms. I'm confident that we will garner more design wins with this approach." said Dr. Gerry Liu, vice president of marketing and chief financial officer, S3 Graphics, Inc.
