Microsoft’s Game Sampler for Windows Refresh rates below about 72Hz cause visible flicker; higher rates don’t. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. ALI boards are, apparently, particularly bad in this respect. Some, like Incoming, come in different versions for different colour depths. Whereas the MonsterSound lineup was targeted at no-holds-barred gamers, the Sonic Impact cards were more generally aimed, and were cheaper and less powerful.

Unfortunately the chip itself was not fully functional and the drivers were very buggy. Get ’em and see if they work for you. Hype doe s not always live up to it’s name. You can’t use your TV and monitor simultaneously, though, and the TV Out part of the V driver is deeply flaky, with controls you can’t use, and an “on” button that only seems to work once per Windows session.

This is a heavily populated AGP board, with lots of surface mount components on the back, too. The MX was the last of the Monster Sound cards. Virtually a repeat of the release of the 3Dfx Voodoo2 chipset, nVidia’s Riva TNT is quickly spawning batch after batch of cloned apples, meaning separating a single TNT card from another is a very difficult task.

Which, by the way, is not an abysmal option; Unreal’s software renderer is diamind good looking, diamod if you’ve got a machine fast enough to make a TNT card worthwhile, it’ll give you decent software rendered framerates in by Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star.

This chip was rather slow and basic. The more dimaond there are, the more bits per pixel, and the more bits per pixel, the more possible colours – number of colours equals two tot he power of the number of bitplanes. But it is only a matter of time that they’ll do it.

Only then will this babe shine at it’s BEST.

She also facilitated the process by communicating with me and my tech support simultaneously. In damond, Diamond was acquired by S3 Graphics and became primarily a supplier of products based upon their graphics accelerator chips. I would personally recommend a cooling fan to be installed if you intend to overclock it’s memory or chip.

The one I got, though, ddiamond just a dinky little coupon apologising for the unavailability of SoftDVD at the time of packaging and inviting me to send in the coupon to get my copy. On my MHz overclocked Celeron, the Viper was as fast in by 16 bit colour as my old Voodoo Graphics Voodoo 1 card was in by And we managed to get it here for you.

The audio engine further received idamond reviews regarding MIDI quality, which was a common standard for multimedia music playback at the time. These are the contents of the box: The price was very good and the boards arrived earlier than promised. Diamondd line later included chipsets with combined 2D and 3D capabilities. If you remember the comparison between virtually any two Voodoo2 accelerators, it usually came down to a comparison of software bundles or drivers.


Diamond’s innovation created the Rio PMPone of the first consumer MP3 players, but they soon sold their MP3 player line and no longer provide support for it. Perhaps even more impressive was how quickly the item arrived in Australia.

Accurate international packging and shipment. Otherwise it was technically identical to the original Monster Sound.

Diamond instead used ESS’s less powerful chips to continue the line. Saitech really helped us out of a jamb! Only the bundled player software can use the hardware MPEG2 decoding of the idamond. Diamond Multimedia later merged with S3, Incorporated in after a long-time cooperative business arrangement, when S3 decided to expand their business ddiamond producing graphics chipsets to manufacturing retail graphics cards.

The Sonic Impact was the value-oriented sound card line from Diamond. The 3D Features are:
