Let us hope that competition will improve this card further. 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. Much was made of Voodoo3 christened ‘Avenger’ and its bit color rendering limitation. This was in fact quite complex, as Voodoo3 operated to full bit precision 8 bits per channel, While I do not have the game titles that will be bundled, but judging from the way it see, 3dfx will probably bundle some real hot games but most likely to differ between the , and models.

This offered better quality than running in pure bit mode. The same applies for the font-size slider. I ran the games at x and they were as good as if not better than playing on TNT based cards.


With the powerful MHz clock rate and Megapixel per seconds chipset core, this V runs application with ease.

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. A Mhz clock rate will be more than sufficient to run today’s most demanding games and 2D applications.

At that setting, the system did not hang even after 8 hours of continuous rounds of Quake II and other exciting games. 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. Avenger was pushed to the forefront as it offered a quicker time to market than the already delayed Rampage.

With the centering and screen adjustment option, I was able to adjust it correctly to fit the TV. User also have to be content with the 16MB memory which might seem voidoo3 little weak in the future.


It’s sure to catch the eye of many with the unique implementation of the human eye in various colours. You will definitely see a lot of improvement over the weeks as the driver avp more matured.

The retail card will definitely have much improved features and performance, minus the TV out feature of course: But nevertheless, the other parts of the card are of rather good quality.

Below are shots showing the 3dfx info box which list out all the technical information of the card, including the BIOS version, driver revision and release date.

The Desktop tab has all the important items from the display properties. To save framebuffer space, the Voodoo3’s rendering output was dithered to 16 bit. The internal organisation of Avenger was 3dx complex. From sources, ‘-G7’ refers to the ability to support up to MHz.
