The last set of drivers officially released for the Voodoo 3 on Win9x was version 1. The refresh-rate is set just like those standard ones offered by windows. As long as the TNT2 based graphics cards are not in the market, this card will remain the current powerhouse with an overall impressive architect which chips like ATI’s Rage based cards or the TNT cannot met with.

The Voodoo3 chip often dubbed as Banshee2 due to the similarity between the 2 design has a markedly similar architecture but has been shrunk from. The Voodoo3and differed mainly in clock frequencies memory and core were synchronous. 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 voofoo they aren’t left with a huge ovodoo of chips no one wants, as was the case with the old 8MB Voodoo2 boards that no one cared for.

Dual monitor support with V1. Due to mis-management by 3dfx, this caused the next-generation ‘Rampage’ project to suffer delays which would prove to be fatal to the entire company. Sit there for a minute, and think about some of the greatest feelings in the world. Let us hope that competition will improve this card further. Again, all the comments and results above are based on the pre-release board and driver provided to me. When dealing with movies, you have the type that are hyped beyond belief because they are excellent movies, and those that are hyped beyond belief because the marketing team behind the movie has the money and the gall to push a horrible movie.


At that setting, the system did not hang even after 8 hours of continuous rounds of Quake II and other exciting games. However, there are very few entertaining titles out there currently that will show an incredible performance improvement using AGP texturing due to texture sizes. In addition, the Voodoo3 consisted of one multi-texturing pipeline, the TNT series consisted of twin single texturing pipelines.

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 ayp holder, Rendition, a name now known to a very small population.

You will definitely see a lot of improvement over the weeks as the driver gets more matured.

But do give me a chance to comment on the performance of the output as the or version will have this feature onboard. The most affordable Voodoo3 card out there today. Although it is of little change, the whole image portrait will now be totally different from the past. This definitely do not justify the need to pay over a hundred dollars or so for a small increase in performance. Single pass multitexturing has once again been implemented on this chip. The Desktop tab has all the important items from the display properties.

It was the successor to the company’s high-end Voodoo2 line and was based heavily upon the older Voodoo Banshee product. 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?

As this is still the raw pre-release driver and desktop utility, I am sure 3dfx will put in some inprovement on its 3dgx realease and put in more tweaking tools which has always being available on STB’s older cards. But neverthless the Voodoo 2 cards are definitely top notch in terms of performance. The Voodoo card which of course comes with the S-Video output, will not exist in the retail version.

Abp also have to be content with the 16MB memory which might seem a little weak in the future. Visually, I can certainly prove that the resolution at x on my monitor are very much sharper than the Savage 3D based card, vodoo moderately on par with the TNT.

This technology allows for textures larger than the amount of available local graphics memory to be stored and retrieved without a performance penalty.

Pre-setup notably featured a guardband clipper eventually part of hardware transformation and lighting but the pixel pipeline was a conventional single-issue, dual-texture design almost identical to that featured on Voodoo2, but capable of working on bit image data as opposed to Voodoo2’s 33 bit output.

Much was made of Voodoo3 christened ‘Avenger’ and its bit color rendering limitation.
