Otherwise, operate the computer in a air-conditioned room without the casing on, that pretty much solved the problem since the S kept locking up every 15 minutes into my Half-Life game grrr! At the bottom of the card, near the AGP interface are 3 jumpers. Installation of the S is basically peanuts like installing any card, simply slide it in and fasten the screw! The Stealth family from Diamond has chipsets used from many different manufacturers, for example S3, Rendition and Intel, quite unlike the Viper family which has all its chipsets drawn from one company namely nVidia.

However, the performance is also very different The Installation, Driver features and Programs. 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!
Quake 3 Arena Test xx Most of us are familiar with Savage4 based graphics products. I wonder if this is Diamond’s intepretation of saving paper???
How much does the 41MHz increase to the Savage4 core clock and the additional 23MHz frequency in the memory clock stea,th performance? At the bottom of the card, near the AGP interface are 3 jumpers. But the only useful feature of TV out surfaces if you stealh not have things like a VCD player or DVD player to hook on to the TV, this is also when you gather the whole family around with some snacks and sit down to watch a movie or two!
General Definitely, the biggest flaw of this card is the lacklustre performance of the S3 Savage4 Pro chipset. Expendable Demo xx32 Page 8: I would have loved to push this card a little higher and see some results!
Diamond Stealth III S Xtreme Review –
This time around, armed with the Savage4, and stepping in right as Diamond’s former companion, 3dfx, stepped out, S3 is ready to make amends and get their name back into the eyes of the public.
Otherwise, operate the computer in a air-conditioned room without the casing on, that pretty much solved the problem since the S kept locking up every 15 minutes into my Half-Life game grrr! The first thing you would notice about the cards is the lack of a fan. However if you intend to use TV out merely for bragging to your friends “Oh, I’ve got a Sony 29” monitor at home!
Well, I did not try plucking the heatsink off the Savage4 chip, but I guess that the heatsink is bonded by the normal paste like grey thermal compound, not like others which are bonded by adhesive so strong they could survive an earthquake intact!
The core also was un-overclockable as that portion was shaded in the PowerStrip options In other words, disabled. The memory chips being used is the Mira 7ns type. Definitely not a buy for 3D intensive gamers!
The S3 Savage4 Pro performance is definitely described by the word lacklustre! Later on, an up and coming company named NVIDIA also joined the bunch, providing Diamond with a killer lineup of high performance 3D accelerators that were tailored to fit the needs of virtually every unique user.
Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star.

Steealth in Reality Marks. Because I stongly believe that benchmarks are useless numbers without comparison to others, I will be comparing the S to my Asus TNT not overclocked as well as the Canopus SpectraPE Rseults obtained from Vijay’s Review and give the S a good run for its money! Few technical specifications are found on the box and there is only a six page installation guide which is just the size of a CD cover. Installation of the S is basically peanuts like installing any card, simply slide it in and fasten the screw!

Even though the core clock has changed the temperature of the graphics chip isn’t affected much. Diamond needs to spend more time re-considering that feature!
The box is plastered with information and boasts the advantages of owning a S over the 3dfx Voodoo3. The Diajond clips 2 out of 3 are quite inaccessible.
It seems that I have to 5s40 one end to get the video card and the other end to the manuals and CDs, nothing difficult if the card is yours, since you simply rip open the package, something difficult for me since this is merely a loan! It seems like ages stealtth, a quickly growing company, Diamond Multimedia, released their first Stealth 3D graphics accelerator.
Unfortunately, the transition from this mock-up 3D accelerator market to the powerful 3D industry of today was ill made by S3, and the company faded into the shadows not to be heard from for quite some time.
