However, there are very few entertaining titles out there currently that will show an incredible performance improvement using AGP texturing due to texture sizes. Notice that all of the Voodoo3 cards are based on a human eye image. 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.

3dfx Voodoo3

For overclockers, you can push up the core and memory speed up to Mhz using Power-Strip. It was the successor to the company’s high-end Voodoo2 line and was based heavily upon the older Voodoo Banshee product. Do notice that the eye appear in all the screen.: This is proved by the fact that both the memory and chip are clocked at MHz, 7MHz short of its theoretical 3df.

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. The ‘Avenger’ graphics core was originally conceived immediately after Banshee.

If needed, you can message the team behind PCMR. Overall Rating Out of a maximum of 5 Star. The most affordable Voodoo3 card out there today.

Voodoo3 current driver are still not quite optimised for “3D Now” but I did not have a chance to 3dfd it. For an in-depth explanation of our giveaway rules don’t forget to check our rules wiki page.

Here’s a shot of while running the 3DMark 99 Max benchmark It’s not about the hardware in your rig, but the software in your heart! With the purchase of STB Systems, 3dfx had acquired several popular brand names. The quality of this pre-production board looks rather shabby in terms of quality. According to Intresourcethis is the pre-release board which was wrapped in an anti-static bag accompanied by an installer CD-R which housed all the driver needed to run the program.

I had that too!

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

Webarchive template wayback links All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from November 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 pure bit output.


Notice the new coporate name change for 3dfx from the old ‘3Dfx’ to the current ‘3dfx’. The same applies for the font-size slider. I dunno, just don’t feel the same. 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.

You will definitely see a lot of improvement over the weeks as the driver gets more matured. Its a fad and will never take off long term.

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

This definitely do not justify the need to pay over a hundred dollars or so for a boodoo3 increase in performance.
