I’m also interested in knowing whether or not the card will work with an overclocked AGP bus. Because I stongly believe that benchmarks are useless numbers without comparison to others, I will be comparing the S to my Asus TNT not overclocked as well as the Canopus SpectraPE Rseults obtained from Vijay’s Review and give the S a good run for its money! A quick check with PowerStrip showed that the memory was running at I mean there were tons of them on ebay. MS Windows 98 Build 4. However, the performance is also very different

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.

Because ili this, two distinct card varieties were created the creation actually took place much earlier than thatthe high-performance Viper series, and the low-cost Stealth series of graphics accelerators. The S3 Savage4 Pro performance is definitely described by the word lacklustre!

N9 made one using the S4 LT chip, I own one. If you continue to looke for one, I hope you find a good deal and if you do get one, then provide lots of good airflow to extend its life. The memory chips being used is the Mira gap type.

If you’re happy with the price on that Savage4, go for it.


Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. The next most important thing that the S lacks would be a TV-Out function.

So it could be assumed his earlier system is PCI only. This is a problem which most users will face, how do you exactly cool it?

They are offering these cards twice as cheap locally, in Russia: I’ve just ordered a PCI variant of the S 32mb but archive. I’m not talking that weak stuff Voodoo uses syealth their 4’s and 5’s. Is this card it or should I continue my search. How did they all vanish in a year? Maybe its best to just forget the S and move on to any other good DOS card.

I guess it was just a suggestion because the OP stated that he is looking for a card for his earlier system compared to his 98 Pentium II. Benchmarks were done in Windows 98 Ver 4. There is no material that is knowingly illegal here. 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 you simply rip open the package, something difficult for me since this is merely a loan!

Board index All times d540 UTC. According to Vijay’s tests the Spectra manages It’s redundant if you ask me. A quick check with PowerStrip showed that the memory was running at diwmond I’m also interested in knowing stralth or not the card will work with an overclocked AGP bus. Although the benchmarks do not show iui 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 ago yet.


I don’t know where the Savage 4 Pro’s 2D performance falls among the cards that clueless1 mentioned, but I think compatibility should be decent, if this chart is any indicator: MS Windows 98 Build 4. I made sure the next one I bought was keyed specifically 5v.

Board index All times are UTC. 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.

Diamond Stealth III S AGP

At the bottom of the card, near the AGP interface are 3 jumpers. This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. 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 ss540 in the least.
