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! Measured in Reality Marks Benchmark Comments. This isn’t a big deal, but should you want to upgrade your RAM, you would have to remove the S first, which is very inconvinent! I would have loved to push this card a little higher and see some results! This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. Not really a bad card, but I’m on a nostalgia trip and I’d really like to get some of the best components available now for it that I had no hope in hell of ever getting 25 years ago.

Diamond Stealth III S540 32mb VGA AGP Video Card S3 Savage 4 Pro Vintage
After all that I don’t think I’ll bother purchasing items from Russia again unfortunately. A seller steealth Germany had one and shipped it out the next day.
Unlike the TNT2, most Savage4 board manufacturers will be shipping their products at the same time, but if you do happen to come across Diamond’s latest concoction, should you give ‘er a try? Now that I know they are getting harder to find, I don’t want to be without it.
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.
You should make sure to have aagp air flow if you’re gonna run 3D games. All from the U. I would offer one to you, but the only one I’m not using is my only backup. I’m not talking that weak stuff Voodoo uses on their 4’s and 5’s.

At the very least, it can go in your collection with that nice box and completeness it’ll look good on the shelf. Nevertheless, the most obvious difference was the slightly brighter graphics.
TV-In would definitely make the S stand out of its competitors and although that adds a few more dollars to the cost, I think it’s defnitely a worthwhile choice! But there’s been a lot of discussion and testing done on best DOS card on these boards lately, and it seems that the best options are: 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 diamobd public.
I ran that combo for a good while but ultimately replaced it with a Hercules Geforce2MX card. Within the huge S box, lies a packet, containing the manuals and the card wrapped in an electrostatic bag divided into 2 levels.

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. Last edited by dr. It’s redundant if you ask me. As mentioned earlier, I tried to overclock the card but PowerStrip refused to let me try speeds above So it could be assumed his earlier system is PCI only.
In any case the default refresh rate for the S is Also, if you’re the type that likes to have old retail boxed hardware, that’s a pretty sweet looking package. 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. 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 This disclaimer diamondd brought to you thanks to the BSA.
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.
I’ve yet to find a game that has any issues xgp it. TNL is not needed in my case.
What are the rest of the specs of the system you are pairing it with, and what OS and games will you be running on it? The Installation, Driver features and Programs. It works fine, but you can find better cards for the price when it comes to 3D performance.
In my previous post I mentioned how hot they run, so I don’t expect them to last forever. I guess it was stealtth a suggestion because the OP stated that he is looking for a card for his earlier system compared to his 98 Pentium II.
MS Windows 98 Build 4. When S3 finally returned to the scene stealgh for their old pals at Diamond to welcome them back with open arms, the bitter rejection of S3’s at the time flagship Savage3D design by Diamond put the once gigantic video manufacturer in their place, back steaoth the drawing boards.
