This page was last edited on 27 July , at With new product releases making their way onto the shelves from video card and video chipset manufacturers every 6 to 9 months, as opposed to the 12 to 15 months for most CPU manufacturers, it is even more difficult keeping up with the video industry. Because of this incredible rate of evolution, manufacturers often have to rush with the production and delivery of a product in order to make sure that they aren’t left with a huge surplus of chips no one wants, as was the case with the old 8MB Voodoo2 boards that no one cared for. Unfortunately this practice is not limited to the movie industry, take away the big screen and film projector and replace it with a monitor and a video card, and what do you get? The Voodoo dominated the market for close to a full year before competing manufacturers such as nVidia started releasing competitive products that came close to matching it in terms of performance.

For overclockers, you can push up the core and memory speed up to Mhz using Power-Strip. These are the 3D Features: Another thing that is definitely worth a look will be to see how this card will fare when the MHz version of TNT2 arrived from companies like Leadtek and Guillemot. But neverthless the Voodoo 2 cards are definitely top notch in terms of performance. While I do not have the game titles that will be bundled, but judging from the way it see, 3dfx will probably bundle some real hot games but most likely to differ between theand models.
Voodoo3 – Wikipedia
Voodoo3 was a series of computer gaming video cards manufactured and designed by 3dfx Interactive. Notice that all of the Voodoo3 cards are based on a human eye image. Compared to the black PCB xgp on the version, the quality of the card seems to be of 5 years older. From sources, ‘-G7’ refers to the ability to support up to MHz.
My advice is to enable this feature as I personally find that there is not much difference after enabling it.
This was the case with 3dfx’s original Voodoo graphics accelerator, as it took the definition of 3D acceleration to a new level, taking the throne away from the vokdoo holder, Rendition, a name now known to a very small population.
This definitely do not justify the need to pay over a hundred dollars or so for a small increase in performance. After going through various photoshots of the Voodoo3 family tree, I notice that the heatsink size vary for all 3 models as the holds the foodoo heatsink of all.
Area Tested Celeron x4. The Voodoo card which of course comes with the S-Video output, will not exist in the retail version. Most important of all, the more advanced single pass multi-texturing built-in immediately makes this board a much better buy than the slowing sibling.
However, a controversy arose over what happened next. You simply install the driver by unzipping the driver file in the CD-R. The internal organisation of Avenger was not complex.

MS DirectX Version 6. To save framebuffer space, the Voodoo3’s rendering output was dithered to 16 bit. However, as this is just 3sfx pre-production board and you might not know what exactly comes in the retail box. Actually, the model tested here perform at a similar level of what a Voodoo2 SLI is capable of.
Although it is of little change, the whole image portrait will now be totally different from the past. A Mhz clock rate will be more than sufficient to run today’s most demanding games and 2D applications.
I am sure the retail 3dfx Tools will be very much improved with the quality STB desktop tools that many of us are familar with. Voodoo3 current driver are still not quite optimised for “3D Now” but I did not have a chance to validate it.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Running the latest 3DMark 99Max which was just released last month to public. Opt for this 3dfx Voodoo3 card if you want the most advanced technology of today but do not want extra frills of TV-output available on the series. The last set of drivers officially released for the Voodoo 3 on Win9x was version 1.
Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star.
This is proved by the fact that both the memory and chip are clocked at MHz, 7MHz short of its theoretical limit.
