Originally, this was just a Voodoo3 modified to support newer technologies and higher clock speeds, with performance estimated to be around the level of the RIVA TNT2. Banshee’s 2D acceleration was the first such hardware from 3Dfx and it was very capable. With the purchase of STB 3dfx created a line of Velocity boards an STB brand that used crippled Voodoo3 chips, as a product to target the low-end market.

The Rampage development project was new technology for use in a new graphics card that would take approximately two years to develop, and would supposedly be several years ahead of the competition once it debuted. It provided only 3D acceleration and as such the computer also needed a traditional video controller for conventional 2D software.
While 3Dfx continued to offer high-performance options, the value proposition was no longer compelling. If you wish to cancel an order, you’ll be banned for life I cannot afford such buyers. Learn More – opens in a new nonster or tab Any international shipping is paid in part to Pitney Bowes Inc.
