The move paralleled the 1999 3dfx purchase of STB Systems, which changed 3dfx from a graphics chipset supplier to companies including Diamond, into a vertically-integrated graphics vendor and direct competitor to his comment is here

To get the full speed on my processor, I've overclocked the FSB to 133MHz, which unfortunately also overclocks the AGP bus. TV-Out No TV-Out is minor issue to most users, however it matters if you are an avid gamer and buy things like wireless keyboards and invest heavily on a nice flat While it may not be of importance to most users, TV-Out was certainly a must for me when I consider buying a video card, because my TV is not too far Lastly, the card performs great with DOS games on an LCD monitor just as described here: viewtopic.php?t=14296&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=60 Eric-tile Newbie Posts: 4Joined: 2013-2-26 @ 01:33 Top Display posts from previous: All

  8. It's redundant if you ask me.

The architecture of the NV1 predates the Microsoft Direct3D philosophy and, as such, game compatibility was a problem with the Diamond Edge boards. The audio engine further received poor reviews regarding MIDI quality, which was a common standard for multimedia music playback at the time. SCSI Adapters[edit] Diamond produced the capable but relatively low-cost FirePort 40 SCSI adapter in the late 1990s.

There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. Huh, who acted as the technical designer. To test if the S540 really excels at OpenGL, I started playing Half-Life in OpenGL mode, and I can defnitely shout this out, the OpenGL mode really rocks compared to Direct3D!!! Homepage I also compared the specs.

With these market failures, the new combined Diamond/S3 company decided to change direction and leave the PC addon-board market.

The SpeedStar line was launched as a series of high-performance ISA graphics cards that excelled in MS-DOS applications up through the early 1990s. The separate slow DOS chip was a problem for owners who played DOS games because these chips were quite slow and had limited and buggy VESA BIOS Extensions implementations. However the OpenGL performance really proved to be an eye-opener! weblink For the uninitiated, Mira is a subsidiary of Mitsubishi, so it's not some unknown brand.

Dual-layer DVDs are not supported in original Windows 95 or 95a, but are in the various versions of 95 OEM Service Release 2. The numbering scheme confused many people since Diamond just renamed current cards with new names. I guess this feature was meant for convenience, but since we all are so used to clicking the Start button, won't it become redundant?

Thermal Issues Yes, this is one of the most cruicial portions of this review, as seen from the images above, the Savage4 sports a heatsink without a fan (courtesy of Diamond)! Thanks guys.

I'm also interested in knowing whether or not the card will work with an overclocked AGP bus. Help us by reporting it Need help? What a disappointment! http://forumfamiljar.com/diamond-stealth/diamond-stealth-iii-s540-xp-drivers.php Because you'd never know if any IC chips or the PCB will get damaged during shipping.

Something else woth mentioning was that the contents of the box were pretty firm and didn't rattle about as I brought it home. This brand was originally created decades ago as just "Fire" by the design team of the professional computer graphics pioneer SPEA Software AG from Starnberg (Germany) that was about 1996 acquired This was the same core as used for ATI driven FireGL V8650 and V8600 cards. As of September 2007, thus long after that business, Diamond was also preparing a new video card, based on the latest-generation R600 graphics core.
