The ViRGE family delivered faster Windows acceleration in the same physical footprint AST S3 ViRGE its predecessor. I mean while first Virge is so slow, it was born in time of little standards, mild competition and unclear future of the whole 3D accelerator industry. But to release one year after Voodoo Graphics chips with quarter performance and plagued by nasty old bugs is just sad.

I personally cannot be so sarcastic about Virge, there is lots of effort behind every chip. But I have to wonder why couldn't company like S3 do much much better. S3 AST S3 ViRGE a product cycle and for one year was a sitting duck with disastrous consequences.

We cannot end AST S3 ViRGE just yet, despite covering all the Virge cores. The architecture with all its weaknesses lived on for much longer in Trio 3D. Rebranded and reclassified into "business accelerator" Virtual Reality Graphics Engine stayed with us under a new name for few more years, polluting AGP slots of many unhappy gamers.

The following information is meant as a guide. Your LCU AST S3 ViRGE file might be different. CFG file with 75Hz as the default at x resolution. CFG file should be deleted first.

Select the radio button next to the desired font size. A dialog box appears with the message that the new settings will take effect the next time you restart your Windows session.


Current open sessions will not be affected by the new settings. Click OK. Selected settings remain in effect until explicitly changed, or the display resolution or driver is changed. EXE loading in the background. Ensure that no other AST S3 ViRGE are running during CID install. The workaround is as follows: Like Savage4, this chip was somewhat popular for Unreal Tournament. It is significantly faster than Savage4 and only the Savage series could run the AST S3 ViRGE with the S3TC textures.

Overall performance is horrible as expected. Gaming at x is just unreachable dream, or torture if you will. I understand why Falcon 4. These cards ran steady at x or x if you are lucky. The beast with massive 8 MB of memory. Success story?

While resolution remains at software rendering level, AST S3 ViRGE Virge's features works image quality enhancement is big enough. The S3 Virtual Reality Graphics Engine (ViRGE) graphics chipset was one of the first 2D/3D.
