Diamond Stealth 2500

A Diamond Stealth videocard that is not based on an S3-chipset. Instead the Stealth 2500 is fitted with an Alliance Promotion AT24 chipset.

I haven't tested this card yet so I can't really tell if it's any good. The AT25 that is found on several Voodoo Rush cards is not very good, however.

I had a K5-PR100 with one of these cards. 2 MB. I used one of its RAM chips to upgrade the patch memory of my Gravis Ultrasound ACE -- at the cost of resolution and/or color depth which didn't bother me at the time.

That graphics card, although I do not have any benchmark data available, gave me smooth gameplay in all situations in Doom. Probably one of the faster PCI models of 1996. It did support a number of pretty 'exotic' resolutions, including 400x300 and 480x360 -- very important with Quake, where I got something like 20-25 fps, and some of the early Doom source ports.
