damn man?   take it easy.  
 
Didn't realize my waterblock "offended" the voodoo relic collectors.  He wanted something special, and we designed it together.  I still think fondly of the project.
 
I was honored to work on the museum piece.  After all, it was his card.  I will leave it at that.


He is not special, he is a plague and has caused us lots of troubles through the entire 3dfx community.
I prefer to keep this out of my topic thanks no I am not going to calm down if this plague is going to infest my own topics here as well.
Also I have already notified the admins of this subject, they are up to date of his so called ways of doing, people don't like his work they get harassed and burnt to the ground.
 
He uses me (Gold Leader) as his cheap excuse and hos ongoing demotivate talk, my friend Goriath even pointed that out to to stop using me as his excuse:

Us 3dfx people had too many bad rides with this person and that is just what I wanted to point out before his nonsense takes place here as well.
 
At 3DCenter they too are fed up with this modding nonsense as he ruins more precious 3dfx Engineering Samples

Very nice thank you.  ^_^


Any time bud and if you need more help setting up, make a post and I will do my best  to help out
Win2K Pro + SP4 is the os I preferably use over 98SE but there are ways of making 98SE more stable with the unofficial service packs that enable NTFS file support and a working task manager.
Even though Win2K is still the utmost best imo, especially when it comes to CPU & system memory usage, the choice will always be user defined

Hello, I have just purchased one of the cards on this list from User: Markus in Spain.
 
How can I provide appropriate verification for the list to be updated?
 
My handle is "erek" and I'm from the U.S.
 
Thank you

Hey guys, It's my first post on this forum. Greetings you all.
 
My name is Nick, i'm from Sofia, Bulgaria, so mind you that English is not my native language:)
I fell in love with 3dfx products, because my first vga was a 3dfx banshee. I bought a used PC from a game club as a kid, and worked the whole summer to afford the mighty K6-2 and the banshee, played lost of NFS, Quake, Half-life, and many games. Wicked GL FTW:) And the voodoo did not disappoint, but I tried to overclock both the K6 and the banshee:) They both died on me after some time, if I remember correctly. Never learned the lesson. Bought a K6 III and a more modern ASUS P5A, overclocked again:)
But...to the point of this post:
 
I own a voodoo 5, just like the colleague "Gold Leader" has:
 
3dfx voodoo 5 5500 PCI Macintosh 64MB Rev.A1 2900 With PC BIOS 1.18_LCD
 
I was wondering, how many of these were produced? Are they considered "rare"? Are they included in the owner list? Can you include mine? I can provide proof tomorrow.
I happen to own it from quite some time. It was a gift from a friend who disassembled his power mac and knew I like the brand. It was at least 10 years ago, I think. I powered that card a couple of times back then, when he gave it to me. To flash the bios. I had to, because I didn't have a mac to test if it was working. Haven't powered it since then. It is in mint condition, I believe, and maybe it's time to power it again to make sure it's working. I also had other 3dfx boards, they either died from my first overclocking attempts, or I gave them to friends. Some I sold. So that is my memory of the brand.

Welcome Nick to the EVGA forums. I would imagine your card is rare.

I still have my old 3dfx 6000 and reviewer instructions. I remember the first time I loaded it up and put FSAA 4X on and loaded up Tribes. What an improvement to image quality! At the time not having edges that looked like Mario's body was amazing. Back at the time I remember people overclocking and disabling audio in games just to increase the frame rate and with the 6000 everything was really smooth.

Guys, here's a picture I made today: 
 
I also found the other graphics card from the power mac. They were at the same place. Guess I have forgotten about that one:) It's a NVidia. The card posted successfully today. But only at the second mainboard I tried - a socket A one with an Athlon. My first choice was an ASUS P5E-VM DO. But guess the ASUS didn't recognize it. And I got worried a little, but it posts normally. So that's nice. And I will call it enough of emotion for today. Next is testing on Windows. I think I should try to power it on a kaby lake motherboard, and run some benchmarks on that platform. But first I have to install windows 7. Should I make a separate thread?
 
EDIT: Forgot to also say, I will test if it does widescreen on the dvi when I find the time:)

The 3dfx Voodoo5 5500 PCI Macintosh isn't as rare as the Engineering Samples are, but it still is the best Voodoo5 card to use in your retro to even modern system jsut as long it has a PCI-X 66Mhz Slot or a PCI 2.1 32Bit Slot the card will work fine.

If using a PCI64 66Mhz slot make sure you set the 64 Bit PCI Slot to 32Bit mode with a 66Mhz Bus speed, this way it will perform like  a V5 5500 AGP  :)
And you have the DVI-D as advantage for better image quality output with certain flatpanels like the EIZO Flexscan S2000 for example :)
Need help with drivers feel free to ask me anytime, I don't have all my cards anymore but I do have the knowledge to aid people when ever I can and I am co-owner of the official x-3dfx community as well :)

And welcome to EVGA Community Forums too btw.

Amazing Collection Gold Leader. Thanks for posting this. It takes back great number of memories.

Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
 The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.
