The first thing you would notice about the cards is the lack of a fan. This card is based on the S3 Savage4 Pro chipset,the last card we saw bearing the Stealth badge was the Stealth II G460 which was based on the Intel i740 chipset. http://depthvision.net/diamond-driver/diamond-driver-s540-stealth.html

It's redundant if you ask me. 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

The box is plastered with information and boasts the advantages of owning a S540 over the 3dfx Voodoo3. Something else woth mentioning was that the contents of the box were pretty firm and didn't rattle about as I brought it home. 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

Based on this, I think the S540 makes an excellent OpenGL card! I had expected more from this video card, since it's priced at SGD$215 which is a tad pricier than many cards based on theRIVA TNT chipset (but of course, you get According to Vijay's tests the Spectra manages 162.0903 MPixels/s and the test results on my system (at 375MHz) indicate 285.0979 MPixels/s, re-running the benchmarks proved useless, for results were around the Marginally, the RIVA TNT is better in 2D and 3D as well as the bus transfer rates.

Also, the Stealth III S540 was launched on the very day that Diamond lauched its Viper V770 (based on nVidia's Riva TNT2) as well, however the difference in the pricing of However, the performance is also very different...

Because you'd never know if any IC chips or the PCB will get damaged during shipping.

Final Reality This set of benchmarks shows how shameful a defeat the Savage4 suffers from the some-what "dated" RIVA TNT chipset. I wonder if this is Diamond's intepretation of saving paper???

A quick check with PowerStrip showed that the memory was running at 143.2MHz, its rated speed, and PowerStrip would not allow me to either increase the memory speed or its core As mentioned earlier, I tried to overclock the card but PowerStrip refused to let me try speeds above 143.2MHz, although I am quite sure that the Mira SDRAMs could handle around Definitely not a buy for 3D intensive gamers! TV-In would be nice although it is not exactly a must.
