The Direct Draw performance of the STB Velocity 128, for the most part is on par with Diamond's Viper V330, no real performance difference here.

The Final Decision

The STB Velocity 128 is nothing more than a Diamond Viper V330 with a few more capacitors and a different display driver, you don't really notice any performance increase over the Viper with the Velocity 128, so until the Viper V330 AGP and STB Velocity 128 AGP are available in retail versions the final decision really comes down to personal preference: Who do YOU prefer?  STB or Diamond?

    You were probably not even born when this card was reviewed, so you're the n00b here. Reply

    This is one of the few websites that have survived for so many years and have retained such old tests. This is already a thing of the past and should be financed if not by governments by the producers of this equipment in order to preserve the memory for the next generations. Great work guys. Reply
