Hunting through listings for retro graphic cards, I'm a little surprised that Voodoo-series cards are so pricey in comparison to TNT/TNT2/GeForce based cards.
From what I remember of the era of these cards, at the time the TNT through GeForce cards were considered the top end of 3D performance. I did a quick scan through old issues of CGW just to confirm, and sure enough the nVidia-based cards were generally at the top of their 3D card roundups.
I get that Voodoo cards do have native Glide support, but by '98-00, pretty much everything was Direct3D/OpenGL by that point.
So why the demand for older Voodoo cards but not for the TNT or early GeForce cards? Seeing older Voodoo cards going for hundreds of dollars, but TNT/TNT2/GeForce cards at under 50 bucks, I feel like I'm missing something.
