S3 has won a deal to supply Packard Bell-NEC Europe with its Savage4 accelerator. S3's graphics accelerator will power Packard Bell's new range of consumer Spirit PCs, according to Business Wire. The US manufacturer's Spirit line of computers is due to start shipping this month and will use the Pentium III chip along with the Savage4. Pascal Cagni, Packard Bell-NEC Europe vice president, said Savage4 offered excellent 3D and digital video performance at a good price point. "We look forward to continuing our relationship with S3 and expect great things of their forthcoming Savage2000 accelerator," he said. Michael Buchanan, S3 director of desktop marketing, said the deal would increase S3's business in Europe. "We are extremely pleased to be engaged with Packard Bell-NEC worldwide and we expect this relationship to generate a significant share of S3's 1999 revenue," said Buchanan. Savage4 is already used by companies including Compaq, IBM, NEC and Micron Electronics. ®
