Due to Covid-19 I advanced some of my retro projects that I've planned for the next winter season 😉

400 450 MHz (upgade info see below)

Honestly, this isn't my most favoured Retro-build because I've never got friends with 3dfx before the Voodoo 3 as single card solution came out.
There was always, due to the Loop-through, this loss in video quality.
Working in grapic business, despite of the good 3D performace, this was always a no go for me.
best wishes & stay well

For my builds it's "no CF-disks, no Floppy emulators, no modern cases etc.", only the real and authentic stuff whenever possible/sensible/affordable.
