3.4 22150105-006 version

This version is less, but there is no major change from the previous version. The only visible difference is the choice of the two rows of resistors on the left of the “Rev” logo. It seems to be a jumper that can support overclocking to 110MHz. The annotation of "XJXJ2" has also been cancelled.

3.5 22150105-008 version Engineering sample

This version is an engineering sample that adjusts the circuits near the SLI interface. Maybe the upgrade is limited and it is not officially mass-produced. The PCB date is 9818 weeks. It can be seen that after the sale, Dimeng has been tirelessly optimizing. Diamond and Creative are really going at two extremes.

3.6 22150105-007 version Engineering sample

This version lacks information and can only be speculated and placed behind version 008. According to version 008, it is speculated that version 007 is a simple adjustment to the circuit on the left of the version number on the back of the card. However, this adjustment had little effect. Only one R12 resistor was retained in the 008 version, and it was abandoned in the 009 version.

 

3.7 22150105-009 version

This version is the least, it is based on the absorption of the 008 version of the correction to enhance the low-pass filter circuit, I do not know how much effect on image quality improvement. But Diamond 's continuous enterprising spirit in pursuit of product performance improvement is particularly respectable.

4. Other special Voodoo2 graphics cards

Most companies have directly adopted 3Dfx VOODOO's reference board, namely the public version, to produce Voodoo2 graphics cards, and some companies have redesigned very distinctive VOODOO graphics cards.

Quantum3d was founded on 31 March 1997 as a spin-off from 3dfx.Quantum3d Obsidain2 200SBi- Two Voodoo2's in SLI mode on one PCB.

At this very moment I do not have a very clear picture of this card, but I have a Voodoo2 with the new later 3dfx Logo on it.
Haven't seen it out here.

You are right, I added it in the later "History of 3Dfx Graphics cards Vol. 1", please see:
