The most simplest way would be to attach a fan by means of screws, you know, re-use those fans that have been sitting in the storeroom since errr Installation of the S is basically peanuts like installing any card, simply slide it in and fasten the screw! Despite that, the loading time of games like NFS3 and Half-Life is very fast and during gameplay the S feels smooth and no freezes whatsoever! Like the Diamond tradition, the S is “manual-less”. 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 TV!

Diamond Stealth III S Xtreme Review –
I’m sure many BH6 owners would also gripe about this, definitely more so for us testers. First Impressions Following the Diamond tradition, the S comes in a huge box that bears an attractive cover design, it is also nice to know that Diamond actually hires a designer to design the box, not getting their engineers to do the job, a fine tradition that is worth keeping.
Quake 3 Arena Test xx32 Page Installation of the S is basically peanuts like installing any card, simply slide it in and fasten the screw! With Diamond’s desktop lineup being composed entirely by solutions from NVIDIA and S3, there must be an incredible level of attention paid to making sure that their own products don’t compete with one another.
Right clicking on any part of the desktop brings up Diamond’s own menu, an eyesore really, considering the pause in between the menu loading, compared to the generic Windows 98! At the same time, Diamond’s new InControl Tools 99 utility comes bundled with the card and should help make tweaking your card a more pleasant experience. The Stealth 3D would prove to be a member of a multiplying faction of “3D” accelerators of the time, which actually barely resemble today’s wave of standard 3D accelerators in the least.
Although the benchmarks do not show the RIVA TNT scorching ahead of the Savage4, it is quite enough to prove that S3 still hasn’t got what it takes to compete in the high-end video card sector yet. Descent 3 xx16 DX6 Diamonx The RAM clips 2 out of 3 are quite inaccessible.
I wonder if this is Diamond’s intepretation of saving paper??? Quake 3 Arena Stewlth xx16 Page Done x for all tests, Wintune and 3D Winbench. Benchmarks were done in Windows 98 Ver 4.
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. While S3 was lurking in the background, Diamond made a few new friends by the names of 3Dfx now 3dfx and Rendition. As where indicated PII would mean I’m overclocking my system to 5. Descent 3 xx16 OpenGL.
How much does the 41MHz increase to the Savage4 core clock and the additional 23MHz frequency in the memory clock affect performance? This Product is provided courtesy of.

Quake 3 Etealth Test xx For the uninitiated, Mira is a subsidiary of Mitsubishi, so it’s not some unknown brand. Shogo xx16 Fortress Page 5: The next most important thing that the S lacks would be a TV-Out function. Demo xx16 Page 6: TV-In would be nice although it is not exactly a must. It’s redundant if you ask me.

Other than those differences, the S is your run of the mill Savage4 board, however in order to establish any major differences let’s take a closer look sfealth the card itself.
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 TV!
The Latest On Tom’s Hardware. 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?
Well, I did ss540 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! Eiamond are the contents of the package:
