A 16MB-version of the Stealth III S540 is available for system integrators and OEMs.
The Stealth III S540 incorporates a 128-bit 2D/3D engine and is capable of achieving clock speeds of 143MHz. It can perform single-pass multi-texturing, 32-bit rendering, up to 1920-by-1440 resolution support, and stencil buffering.
The new board will retail for $129.95 and also can be purchased from Diamond’s online store at www.diamondmm.com/where-to-buy/online-store. Customers who purchase the board will also receive two full-version PC games of their choice.
