It’s worth every cent that you pay. Diamond’s innovation created the Rio PMPone of the first consumer MP3 players, but they soon 7v70 their MP3 player line and no longer provide support for it. From Diamond’s perspective, the V was thrust into the position of the company’s graphics flagship.
Huh, who acted as the technical designer. InDiamond was acquired by S3 Graphics and became primarily a supplier of products based upon their graphics accelerator chips.
If the first digit was 2then the card used standard DRAM. Aureal had gone into bankruptcy and diaond dissolved, so their last generation of chips were never released.
