S3 Graphics Co. Ltd. is the manufacturer of the S3 Inc. Savage/MX Display Driver. The company concentrates in developing graphic chipsets. Even though the company does not have a big market share that they once had, they still create graphics accelerators for home computers under the 53 Chrome brand title. The company was founded and integrated in January of 1989 by Dado Banatao and Ronald Yara. After a lot of profitable years as an independent beginning company, working hard with the transformation to integrated 3D cards, the company recreated itself as a consumer electronics company and sold off its main graphics division to a joint venture. The joint venture, S3 Graphics, still continues to develop and market chips based on the S3 graphics technology. The newly transformed company transported over a substantial pile of cash from the profitable TRIO days and victorious investment in UMC.
