Final Reality This set of benchmarks shows how shameful a defeat the Savage4 suffers from the some-what "dated" RIVA TNT chipset. I haven't purchased a Diamond Stealth III S540 yet, but I would prefer to use AGP if at all possible because I have no more free PCI slots. I've indicated my system as PII-333(S540) when running with the Stealth III S540 and PII-333(V3400TNT) when running with my Asus V3400TNT/TV video card. I don't know when :).
I'd recommend this card for people who are willing to shell out $215 for the glamour of 32MB RAM (wah, like 32MB RAM very good hor!) and of course, for those I know the card uses a Savage4 chip, but I just want to be certain about the drivers.

The box is plastered with information and boasts the advantages of owning a S540 over the 3dfx Voodoo3. this content 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 Diamond needs to spend more time re-considering that feature! One gripe however, the video BIOS takes a slightly longer time to load compared to my Asus TNT!

The official S3 Savage4 drivers do indeed work for both Windows 98 SE and Windows 3.11. I've read that this causes problems for some AGP graphics cards. Something else woth mentioning was that the contents of the box were pretty firm and didn't rattle about as I brought it home.

Driver CD not provided!! However, the performance is also very different... 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 Eric-tile Newbie Posts: 4Joined: 2013-2-26 @ 01:33 Top Reply with quote Re: Diamond Stealth III S540 32MB AGP Compatibility Questions by Eric-tile » 2013-3-22 @ 00:44 Well, I bit the
