Enthusiasm love it
My god ! about a 10% of my 6850's OC'd score ! that GPU IS A BEAST ! how many FPS per test?
so glad i saw this :thumbup:
GPU : 4 VSA-100 in SLI (Voodoo5 6000 3700A was released in year 2000)
Look on this picture for FPS :
Now 11 cards
Dammit dude, this is just grand. Just really friggin' grand.
My pictures :

One part of my collection :
i wished 3dfx was still arround, damm api was too good, no stutters no bull****, every fault was nvidia with its tnt2 ultra @32bits, meh 16bit was the ****, but noobs decided just to go 32bit and ****ed the company that started it all.
These cards were great in there day and there great to collect(i still have a Voodoo 2,the first ever SLI card that i used) but using them as a dedicated gaming machine is too much effort,especially as *Glide wrapper* achieves exactly the same result without all the hardware.
Bad news, Voodoo 5 6000 can't run game test 4 in 3DMark 2001SE - Nature because it has lack of pixel and vertex shader hardware.
I never had any 3DFX card. but my nv card works 3DFX due to glide emulator but this sw has some limitations and compatible issue.
my imagenation of gtx 590 + 10 years ......
Memory's ah the memory's.... I still have my Voodoo 3000 somewhere.
Extremely impressive for a card that is 12 years old I give you props. I think Nvidia would do well to do a tribute to 3DFX by making a lineup with todays gpu but with full glide support and an updated glide sdk and named 3DFX. But that is probably wishfull thinking.
Sorry, but I have to ask, what is the point of having 11 of these?
It is an awesome colector's item
Good answer thanks
NP ! I remember the 3DFX days... so.. nostalgic ! i had a K6 II back then ^^
I'd wish they were still here, innovating and making great cards as they used to and giving us more options to choose from ! this ati vs nvidia and amd vs intel discussions are making me mad ! everyone fighting each other for the sake of fanboyism... if we had more options to choose from, we would share more and fight less !
don't you agree?
