Diamond on fire with NT offering

Diamond Multimedia is looking to be the dominant graphics vendor in the high-end Wintel space with its Fire GL1 professional graphics accelerator aimed at the mid-market. It features IBM's graphic chip set for the Windows NT platform and supports Intel's Pentium III Streaming SIMD Extensions, the combination delivering the first 256-bit engine to the Windows NT workspace.

"The Fire GL1 fills the existing price-point gap between entry-level graphics accelerators and specialist or professional designer products," said Peter Vandershaar, country manager for Diamond.
