Because you'd never know if any IC chips or the PCB will get damaged during shipping. To start viewing messages, select the forum that you want to visit from the selection below. The first thing you would notice about the cards is the lack of a fan. However, the performance is also very different... hop over to this website
Back to top The Benchmarks Benchmarks were done in Windows 98 (Ver 4.10) and using the drivers provided in the Diamond CD. The memory chips being used is the Mira 7ns type. Marginally, the RIVA TNT is better in 2D and 3D as well as the bus transfer rates. It seems that I have to open one end to get the video card and the other end to the manuals and CDs, nothing difficult if the card is yours, since
Since AGP/CLK is set to 1/1 means that the card is running at 150MHz and 166MHz (AGP2X) respectively at clockspeeds of 375MHz and 416MHz. There is one setback...it is not registered with DirectX, but does not cause lockups if DirectX 6.x/7.x is installed.
It is quite obvious when a lot of 3D rendering is needed, the Savage4 slows down somewhat, trying hard to cope, the RIVA TNT also slows down albeit not as obvious The RAM clips (2 out of 3) are quite inaccessible. You may have to register before you can post: click the register link above to proceed. According to the addendum, these jumpers are meant for AGP 4X, and all the 3 jumpers would have to be shorted to enable AGP 4X.
First Impressions Following the Diamond tradition, the S540 comes in a huge box that bears an attractive cover design, it is also nice to know that Diamond actually hires a designer Currently, my BH6 doesn't support AGP 4X and thus, this feature could not be tested, but I reckon that speeds would be slightly faster (not exactly 2X faster than AGP2X) due By far, Stealth III is the ultimate graphics value. Diamond keeps changing their company name and website and stuff.
To get the full speed on my processor, I've overclocked the FSB to 133MHz, which unfortunately also overclocks the AGP bus. check here Back to top VIDEO CARD RATING Overall Rating (Out of a maximum of 5 Star) Installation ***** Performance *** Price **** Software Bundle ***1/2 Material Quality **** Overall Rating **** Back The Pentium II 333MHz which I have cannot run 5 X 100MHz and the best it can manage is 416MHz (5 X 83.3MHz) but due to harddisk stability issues, the max At the bottom of the card, near the AGP interface are 3 jumpers.

I'm also interested in knowing whether or not the card will work with an overclocked AGP bus. 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 More information on the Intel 440BX chipset here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_440BX. weblink I noticed that after I posted.
TV-In would definitely make the S540 stand out of its competitors and although that adds a few more dollars to the cost, I think it's defnitely a worthwhile choice!

This unit is an OEM pull and does not include any software, drivers or manuals!! This site hosts no abandonware. I know the card uses a Savage4 chip, but I just want to be certain about the drivers. These are some of my first impressions on opening the box, hehe, so without further ado, let's continue with the Technical Specifications!
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 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)! None of the above shall be reproduced, copied and/or modified without the permission of the WebMaster. Final Reality This set of benchmarks shows how shameful a defeat the Savage4 suffers from the some-what "dated" RIVA TNT chipset.
Diamond needs to spend more time re-considering that feature! Nevertheless, the most obvious difference was the slightly brighter graphics.
