All of us have owned or heard concerning the Voodoo collection of graphics playing cards, all of which have been designed and made by 3dfx Interactive. The corporate was a significant rival to different GPU producers, primarily NVIDIA again within the day however after lackluster product launches, the corporate finally filed for chapter and most of their property have been acquired by NVIDIA in 2002 for $70 Million.

We just lately noticed a mod of the 3dfx Voodoo 5 6000 graphics card the place the graphics card was recreated with a contemporary contact to it. The graphics card, designed by modder, Anthony, makes use of a customized PCB design with 5 VSA-100 GPUs, every with 8 MB (166 MHz) SDRAM for a complete of 32 Megabytes of reminiscence and every GPU linked to an energetic heatsink resolution powered by a 4-pin energy interface. The cardboard rocks a PCI interface (not PCIe) and options twin VGA ports for show output.
In fact, that was only a fan recreation and playing cards like these aren’t going to make a lot sense in right now’s GPU market other than nostalgic causes so we’re going to get one thing fashionable. Once more, let’s wait until subsequent week to see what that is all about. It may very nicely be a well-played troll account for all we all know.
