3dfx Voodoo5 9000 - 32 Way SLI Monster

Some of you might remember 3dfx wich who ruled the graphics card industry back in the late 90's. Their latest chip the VSA100 had a max spec of 32 way SLI, thoe such setup have never ben seen, well not until now!
The Voodoo5 9000 have 32 VSA100 chips clocked at 166mhz stacked together in greatest 3dfx style to be able to compete against Nvidias Geforce2 Ultra. The cards cooling is so perfectly dimensioned that it even makes a GeForce FX 5800 Ultra cry!
The mastepiece supports the state of the art Glide3 and can screw your image up with all the alphabet's diffrent kinda buffers and blurs.
Because of gobal warming concerns where this card never released to the public and this is the only replica not yet locked up at area 51.

Let me present you - The Voodoo5 9000

Here is a video:

Well... I guess conspiracy theorists, now come in the flavour of vintage hardware enthutiasts as well.

Don't eat stuff off a 15 year old never cleaned cpu cooler.
Those cakes make you sick....

Excellent work getting Crysis to work with the Voodoo5, I liked that it still shows the 3DFX logo when opening too 😁

This a really good demonstration of the amazing VSA100 chip(s) 😀

This one enormous piece of video card was built from the existing Voodoo5 cards that he still have in his possession. He also programmed the drivers (and the BIOS) for that card using data and technical information that could be found in the Interwebz.

I love how you have to have 4 AGP slots for the 4-way Voodoo 5-6000 setup. 🤣

I almost fell out of my chair when you powered it up and the wind tunnel sound came on and the paper started moving from the wind.

Great vid!

How much for 4 of those suckers and a motherboard with 4 AGP slots?

Behind the scenes video? I'd love to see how this thing is constructed. It looks like it could be a real card, if 3dfx plied their engineers with meth. 😁

All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder
