The Voodoo 3 was hyped as the graphics card that would make 3dfx the undisputed leader, but the actual product was below expectations. The Voodoo3 sold relatively well, but was disappointing compared to the first two models and 3dfx gave up the market leadership to Nvidia.

Voodoo 5 The company's next and as it would turn out, final product was code-named Napalm. Originally, this was just a Voodoo3 modified to support newer technologies and higher clock speeds, with performance estimated to be around the level of the RIVA TNT2.


However, Napalm was delayed, and in the meantime Nvidia brought out their landmark GeForce chip, which shifted even more of the computational work from the CPU to the graphics chip. Napalm would have been unable to compete with the GeForce, so it was redesigned to support multiple chip configurations, like the Voodoo2 had. However, by the time the VSA based cards made it to the market, the GeForce 2 and ATI Radeon cards had arrived and were offering higher performance for the same price.

The only real advantage the Voodoo 5 had over the GeForce 2 GTS or Radeon was its superior spatial anti-aliasing implementation, and the fact that, relative to its peers, it didn't suffer such a large performance hit when anti-aliasing was enabled. The only other member of the Voodoo 5 line, the Voodoo 4was as much of a disaster as Voodoo Rush, because it had performance well short of its value-oriented peers combined with a late launch. Also, the Mac versions of the Voodoo 4 and 5 had an Achilles' heel in that they did not support hardware-based MPEG2 Alliance ProMotion 3D + Voodoo Graphics 96 acceleration, which hindered the playback of DVDs on a Mac equipped with a Voodoo graphics card.

The Voodoo 5 never made it to market, due to a severe bug resulting in data corruption on the AGP bus on certain boards, and was limited to AGP 2x. It was thus incompatible with the new Pentium 4 motherboards.

In some cases it was shown to compete well with the GeForce 3trading performance places with the card on various tests. A majority of the engineering and design team working on "Rampage" the successor to the VSA line that remained with the transition, were requested and remained in house to work on what became the GeForce FX series. Others accepted employment with ATI to bring their knowledge to the creation of the X series of video cards and the development of Crossfiretheir own version of SLI, and yet another interpretation of 3Dfx's SLI ideal.

As ofdrivers and support are still offered by community websites. The cards also support SLI Scan-Line Interleavea technique which allows 2 cards to be run simultaneously and draw the lines of the image in turn, boosting performance and enabling a resolution of up Alliance ProMotion 3D + Voodoo Graphics 96 x With one card installed, up to x is possible regardless of memory.

It is also possible to use a modified floppy drive cable. Following the same principle as the Voodoo1 there are three independent bit RAM buses, one for the frame buffer processor and one for each TMU. So even though there are technically 4 or 8 MB of texture memory on a Alliance ProMotion 3D + Voodoo Graphics 96 effectively there are only 2 or 4 MB available for textures.


With SLI this amount does not grow, instead the textures will be copied two more times. Voodoo2 still requires the passthrough cable and use of a separate 2D card. However, the chipset does have some 2D features and there is a driver for Linux that allows one to use Voodoo2 as a GUI Alliance ProMotion 3D + Voodoo Graphics 96. The Voodoo2 remained the standard for PC 3D accelerator cards throughout The iconic Voodoo2 SLI setup holds nostalgic value for some people.

Voodoo2 SLI is viable for almost all Glide games, and has the advantage over Voodoo 3 that it can play more Glide games originally only designed for Voodoo1, with necessary environment variable configuration.

Weak points include occasional slight stutter in texture intensive games due to texture trashing and possible image quality problems resulting from the passthrough design. It is clocked at MHz, meaning that the midrange Banshee was actually slightly faster in then prevalent single-textured games than the high-end Voodoo2, yet clearly falls behind in games utilizing multi-texturing.

Its 2D acceleration was very capable. It also was the first to have the "bit" 2x2 filter see below.
