Re: Gigabyte GA-630 Voodoo Banshee thoughts

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. Can you improve upon it? (full disclaimer: never used a Diamond card so that may be a bit of a pointless question, …

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 …

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

You have a different use case by the sounds of it. Why not run it faster, I ask? The 2000 card I have has 6ns RAM, and as long as the GPU itself is capable of 166MHz (which it is), why limit it? Yes, I could replace it with a faster card, but why? I want a card that will play Glide games, and also …

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

Sorry to ask but.... wh.... why? Honestly, I prefer to underclock Voodoo cards instead of overclocking them, especially the Voodoo 3 (which runs very hot, even with a fan). 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 …

Re: Simmconn AWE64 Adapter

Unfortunately I have the issue of not recognizing any edo ram . I have tried several rams that are already tested on pc,on amiga accelerator etc. What ever size or jumber setting I try...diagnose.exe gives the internal 4mb ram. ( Awe64 gold) . Any thoughts please ?? Should I directly speak with …

Re: S3 AGP Cards (and possibly others) Too Bright

I just checked the Stealth 3D 2000 Pro I have, and it actually has the 3.04 BIOS (its identical to this card , except 4 of the memory modules are in sockets). What is the easiest way to dump the BIOS from this card and upload it here? I prefer a method that can be done on a PC. I have a very old …

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

Yes you can just flash the 3000 bios on a 2000 card. I also recommend testing wether it runs stable at 3000 clocks first like already cyclone3d suggested. Awesome, thanks guys. Fingers crossed it does - the card has 6ns RAM so at least from that perspective it should be okay, it just depends if the …

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

Thanks for the replies! Much appreciated. I'll probably leave it myself unless I do actually run into any issues with games. Semi on-topic (it makes more sense to post it here than to create a new thread), does anyone know if you can just flash a Voodoo3 2000 with a 3000 BIOS? I just bought a cheap …
