Area Tested Celeron x4. Compared to the black PCB used on the version, the quality of the card seems to be of 5 years older. All the results above are still based on the driver version 4. The 3D quality looks great and detailed. This page was last edited on 27 July , at User also have to be content with the 16MB memory which might seem a little weak in the future. Overall, the quality from a first look seems quite inferior.

Voodoo3 current driver are still not quite optimised for “3D Now” but I did not have a chance to validate it.

Available Not available in retail version. I did try a much higher speed of Mhz however the system crash upon booting. Visually, I can certainly prove that the resolution at x on my monitor are very much sharper than the Savage 3D based card, but moderately on par with the TNT. The refresh-rate is set just like those standard ones offered by windows. However, as this is just a pre-production board and you might not know what exactly comes in the retail box.

Com, accessed August 30, What you will get is a better quality PCB board, an extra fan on the heatsink and some faster memory chip soldered in the board.

Before Voodoo3, 3dfx simply made the Voodoo chips and sent them out to other companies to be built on PCBs.


However, I am unable to enable the desktop icon on the bottom left of the screen as similar to Diamond or other brands.

MS DirectX Version 6. The Desktop tab has all the important items from the display properties. Views Read Edit View history. Hopefully this is true as I am sure many will be disappointed if the games bundled are all the zgp throughout the 3 series.

Overall, the quality from a first look seems quite inferior. But neverthless the Voodoo 2 cards are definitely top notch in terms of performance. Last updated April 18, Interestingly, this Voodoo model crave out a niche market for itself too. The 3D quality looks great and detailed.

Voodoo3 came as the 2nd chipset in 3dfx’s history to have a full 2D and 3D engine built-in. To save framebuffer space, the Voodoo3’s rendering output was dithered to 16 bit. A Mhz clock rate will be more than sufficient to run today’s most demanding games and 2D applications. Avenger was thus merely a 3ddfx with an integrated bit 2D video accelerator and twice the clock speed. Dual monitor support with V1.

However, do bear in mind that the SDRAM will most probably be able to overclock pass MHz if you use a ‘Powerstrip’ or similar utility to tweak the card. What Zgp am covering here is the 3dfx TV option which will not not be available on the retail version of this card.

With the powerful MHz clock rate and Megapixel per seconds chipset core, this V runs application with ease. The Voodoo2 was a 3D-only solution that allowed for extremely high frame rates during its time and was the hands-down leader performance-wise in the mainstream graphics industry. This pretty much doubles the performance of your 3D games. Let us hope that competition will improve this card further.

Of course, you would be confined to only purchasing the same Voodoo2 same manufacturer and both would have to be PCI. For Win the latest version is 1.

However, a controversy arose over what happened next. My advice is to enable this feature as I personally find that there is not much difference after enabling it. The bad point is of course the lack of bit option while running games.
