3dfx Grafikkartenbilder thread

  • Maniac81 If you need help with drivers for that Voodoo5 5000 AGP 32MB rev.A0 3700 let me know , I have an archive of drivers of that card :)
    Super cool you got one bud, always a glorious thing to see :) Had the others ass well, the 5500 AGP X4 & 6000 were fairly easy to use, the 5000 AGP year that was something else alright.
    For very odd reasons, I was never able to get SLI working in NTFS Operating systems, even by adding custom made strings to certain drivers SLI would refuse t operate.

    Back in the day I had two 5000 AGP's myself and a 5000 PCI as well, speaking of which, here my best cards from back in the day :)
    Oddly though, the 5000 PCI did work with SLI in NTFS Operating systems but the 28 week newer 5000 AGP did not, still questioned on why, I was never able to find out sadly.

    Anyways here my best cards from 2006 to 2011:

    3dfx Velocity 200 AGP 16MB Rev.A0 2699 Engineering Sample
    3dfx Voodoo5 5000 AGP x4 32MB Rev.A0 3700 (1st card)
    3dfx Voodoo5 5500 PCI_DVI 64MB Rev.A1 2900 3dfx Apple Group Development Board
    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 AGP 128MB Rev.A 3700 + Late Voodoo Volts, Internal Power Hookup by Gary Donobvan & PCI Re-Work by ex-3dfx Engineer Sir Hank Semenec.

    3dfx Voodoo5 5000 AGP x4 32MB Rev.A0 3700 (2nd card)
    3dfx Voodoo5 5000 PCI 32MB Rev.A1 0900

    3dfx Voodoo5 5500 AGP x4 64MB Rev.A2 3500 IBM OEM Card 1 of 400 pcs worldwide
    3dfx Voodoo5 5500 AGP 64MB Rev.A 2500 Production Board

    there won't be a day that goes by that I will regret getting rid of these, now the photo's only remain with the gained knowledge and experience.

  • Gold Leader thank you for your offer, if I need help I will let you know.

    I only tested the card to be OK in an Epox 8K5A3 , Windows 98SE and it seems to be working well.

    You had a very impressive collection, sad that it is gone.

    At the Moment I´m very busy because of Homeoffice (they are trying to drown me in work and it seems that they are succesfull)

    I´m going to test the card as soon as possibel. (no overclocking or other bullshit, these are monuments!)

  • Yeah got all the photo's you can check out my research to what I gained with my Napalm boards in this thread at EVGA:

    it takes a while to load, now thanks to @Surrimugges would for updating our 3dfx gallery this thread is readable again :)
    And yea I am still in pain on selling those cards to be honest, my Voodoo3 35000 is the only one I have left, even I rebought it in 2019, better something than nothing at all.

    The Voodoo3 3500 was always a card that I started with, so hopefully I can find a Voodoo5 5500 AGP or PCI Mac, but yeah high hopes since the prices are plain stupendous these days.

    Very imperessive work and many very beautiful pics.

    Many thanks man, at least I left some good memories and knowledge behind and I know I made the lists right after I sold my cards, dunno who's Voodoo5 5000 & 6000 you have tho, since I didn't see you in my lists either, interesting otherwise :)

    Anyways I am glad you still have your 3dfx marvels and it does me good to see them again : )
    Also my 5000 AGP's worked fine in 98 SE NL with UnOfficial Service Pack 1.6 and the Amigamerlin 2.9 driver worked also fine. but Win 2K Pro & WinXP Pro wasn't so grando rofl :topmodel:

    My first 5000 AGP did stable game runs of around 7 hours the second card didn'tgive me more than 5 hours, the system I used was the following:

    AMD AthlonXP 2700+ T-Bred B @ 2167Mhz
    EPoX EP-8K3A+
    1x 1GB PC-3200 Kingston Hyper-X Genesis + 1x 1GB Corsair XMS Platinum | 2GB PC-3200 @ PC-2700.
    3dfx Voodoo5 5000 AGP x4 32MB Rev.A0 3700
    Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 Platinum

    Win 98 SE NL (Dutch version)
    UnOfficial Service pack 1.6 (Was latest at the time I used it)
    AmigaMerlin 2.9
    Latest x-3dfx drivers for Win9X

    Both driver sets worked fine to my best of memories.

  • Maniac81 Were you able to get SLI working on the 5000 AGP under a NTFS OS?
    This was the one thing I could never get working with 98SE it was no issue at all.

    I tried adding binaries in the .cfg files of the drivers to force the driver to enable it but that never worked either, it goes many years back tho.
    Here my research on the Voodoo5 5000 AGP x4 32MB Rev.A0 3700 had two of these and the Voodoo5 5000 PCI 32MB rev.A1 0900 had one of these

    And the day I hit the main page from 3dfxzone.it for getting a Voodoo5 5000 AGP x4 32MB Rev.A0 3700 working in games under Win98SE NL + Unofficial Service Pack 1.6 in SLI mode and WinXP Pro UK + SP3 even it was single chip, my result was the same was I tried with Win 2K pro + SP4 before this test, you can see this cool front page post here :)

    it's just wasn't good enough due to the SLI issue I kept getting with both 5000 AGP boards under any NTFS operating system, it really bugged my mind.
    So I just had to be sure, but yea it would of been nice if SLI did work under NTFS Operating systems when it came to the Voodoo5 5000 AGP boards, the 5000 PCI how ever showed no issues, so I dunno what caused this to actually break, I am assuming it was a driver related issue.

    But yea I am wondering if you are experiencing the same issues I had and maybe you can find a way to solve this?
    Even I don't have my cards anymore, I can still relate to it and maybe help test things as well :)

  • a great memory of my 3dfx past the three Legendary Voodoo5 Graphcs card series :)

    Hey Maniac81 you got me to an old memory!
    So here it goes hah :topmodel::respekt:

    High End:
    3dfx Voodoo 5 6000 AGP 128MB Rev.A 3700 + Hank Semenec's PCI-Rework & gdonovan's Internal Power Hookup mod

    Mid End:
    3dfx Voodoo 5 5500 AGP 64MB Rev.A 2500

    Low End:
    3dfx Voodoo 5 5000 AGP 32MB Rev.A0 3700

    My 3dfx memories will never fade, my photo gallery doesn't lie about it either :)
    And I may not have them physically, but within my mind none of my cards ever left me, but neither the knowledge I gain for them either, so all good here <3

  • Es gibt die Karte mit und ohne Bios Chip. Diese hier hat einen BIOS Chip jedoch sind keine Daten drauf bzw. sie bootet nicht wird jedoch als Grafikkarte unter Windoof erkannt. Auch die Karte ohne BIOS Chip wird unter Windows erkannt.

    Interessant wäre es ein BIOS aufzuspielen.

    Die Karte wird durch das Mainboard/Hauptplatine des Automaten angesteuert und dient nur noch zur Bildverarbeitung/Berechnung.

    Es wurden zudem auch normale V3 2000 / 3000 und Banshees verbaut.

    Wenn ich mal etwas Luft habe kann ich diese Karte bzw. die Version ohne BIOS Chip gern mal auf der passenden Hauptplatine laufen lassen.

    "Testautomat :spitze:"
