Here’s a shot of while running the 3DMark 99 Max benchmark In addition, the Voodoo3 consisted of one multi-texturing pipeline, the TNT series consisted of twin single texturing pipelines. The Voodoo3 , and differed mainly in clock frequencies memory and core were synchronous. As this is still the raw pre-release driver and desktop utility, I am sure 3dfx will put in some inprovement on its final realease and put in more tweaking tools which has always being available on STB’s older cards. This definitely do not justify the need to pay over a hundred dollars or so for a small increase in performance. However, as this is just a pre-production board and you might not know what exactly comes in the retail box.

The same applies for the font-size slider. Views Read Edit View history. But in the near future, you can expect viodoo3 next wave of games to use much larger textures than we’re already used to.

The retail card will voodoo have much improved features and performance, minus the TV out feature of course: Simple as it might seem, you will truely appreciate vixeo feature if you compare it to older cards which also have TV out but whose screen was not centered as it did not allow adjustment.

But do give me a chance to comment on the performance of the output as the or version will have this feature onboard.

This definitely do not justify the need to pay over a hundred dollars or so for a small increase in performance. 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.

3dfx Voodoo3 3000 graphics card – Voodoo 3 – 16 MB Series

This definitely means a lot since the 3DMark 99Max results above have already proved that the Savage 3D and RIVA TNT are of no match to this latest generation chip, notice the results on multi-texturing fill rate which the Voodoo3 shines high. 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.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I did try a much higher speed of Mhz however the system crash upon booting. This offered better quality than vopdoo3 in pure bit mode. Notice that all of the Voodoo3 cards are based on a human eye image.

voodol3 Much was made of Voodoo3 christened ‘Avenger’ and its bit color rendering limitation. Avenger was thus merely a Voodoo2 with an integrated bit 2D video accelerator and twice the clock speed.

3dfx Voodoo3 – AGP 16MB 2D/3D Graphics Accelerator Review

This technology allows for textures larger than the amount of available local graphics memory to be stored and retrieved without a performance penalty. My advice is to enable this feature as I personally find that there is not much difference after enabling it. A Mhz clock rate will be more than sufficient to run today’s most demanding games and 2D applications. Although it is of little change, the whole image portrait will now be totally different from the past.


Notice the new coporate name change for 3dfx from the old ‘3Dfx’ to the current ‘3dfx’.

Most important of all, the more advanced single pass multi-texturing built-in immediately makes 3rfx board a much better buy than the slowing sibling. With the purchase of STB Systems, 3dfx had acquired several popular brand names. Actually, the model tested here perform at a similar level of what a Voodoo2 SLI is capable of.

3dfx Voodoo3 3500 TV AGP 16mb Video Card

To save framebuffer space, the Voodoo3’s rendering output was dithered to 16 bit. Overall, the quality from a first look seems quite inferior. After going through various photoshots of the Voodoo3 vooodoo3 tree, I notice that the heatsink size vary for all 3 models as the holds the smallest heatsink of all. Pre-setup notably featured a guardband clipper voodo3o 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 pure bit output.

All the results above are still based on the driver version 4. Whether you are buying theor the top-of-the-line Voodoo3, you will still be getting the same Voodoo3 chipset other than the different clock rate and memory speed. Here’s a shot of while running the 3DMark 99 Max benchmark The last set of drivers officially released for the Voodoo 3 on Win9x was version 1.
