The Serpent Rider wrote on 2020-11-16, 16:24: seeing what is essentially a 1 TMU Voodoo 2 running at 1600x1200… How so? It's practically Voodoo 3 without multitexturing. Yeah, that's a much better description. The V3 was a faster clocked, die shrunk Banshee core with another TMU.

Re: New sound card(s) project(s): Vortex2 Tribute

Count me in. I definitely think that keeping with the legacy moniker you should go all out with a focus on audio and board quality. Certain Diamond cards were revered for their quality.

Re: Any benefit to upgrading the BIOS on a Voodoo3?

Hey everybody have their hobbies, some of you want to prematurely kill your voodoo cards.... ;) Not sure how it would be prematurely killed considering it: - has 166MHz RAM (i.e the same as a V3 3000 has) - has the same GPU as a V3 3000 - has the same physical card layout of a V3 3000 (minus the TV …

They really are not very fast cards to begin with, so why bother with overclocking? You only gain... what? 10, maybe 20 FPS in …

Re: Any benefit to upgrading the BIOS on a Voodoo3?

Just an update to this for anyone else who may be in the same boat... you can't flash a 3000 BIOS to a 2000 card. The 2000 BIOS is 32K, the 3000 BIOS is 64k (40k actually used in the image). I found this the hard way after not noticing and using a tool which allowed flashing of any BIOS regardless …
