    Hmm try 960mv, my friend that has a Rad 7 50th AE which uses the Vega 20 GPU runs it at 960mv just fine, it could be that Vega 10 aka RX Vega 56 & 64 can work at similar mv setting.

    As for Rad 7 prices here in NL the Sapphire is around 774 Euro...…-radeon-vii-16g-hbm2.html

    in Germany the Sapphire Rad VII goes for around 703 Euro…-sapphire-technology.html

    But in USA they go for around 699 USD aka 625 Euro...

    We always get ripped off it seems...

    my reason for going for a Sapphire is due to their supreme customer service & support when of need, i know there are cheaper brands and all, I have the same for EVGA when I buy a GeForce for example, for my experience paying a bit more for a brand that has better services is just worth it, well for me anyways.

    Just dunno if I'd go for a Rad 7 just yet, since Navi 20 aka RX 3090 XT is also on the horizon, just going to wait those off and see how they will perform.


    Nice card, look slike the reference AMD design, do both Radeon logo's light up? or just the one on the side?
    Also don't forget that protection plastic that covers the lgo's lol :topmodel:

    Hey all it's been a while I been here, just wanted to show you guys the AMD Radeon VII 50th Anniversary Edition one of my friends and members of has, here drchoi21's Rad 7 50th AE:

    Here she is all lit up <38)

    He managed to get it's Vega 20 XT GPU to 960mv :)
    Here a GPU-Z shot of this beauty:

    Enjoy :)

    Any of you remember System Shock 1 & 2? Well it's time to get psyched for System Shock 3 which will be rendered with Unity Engine:

    System Shock 3 is coming:

    Here a video preview of it

    The reason I post this here, is that System Shock 1 & 2 had glide patches, and if those have new gen systems this new version may seem scary and attractive enough to try out [Blocked Image:]:)

    That thing in the preview video freak the shit out of me lmao xD

    After seeing it I was like --> nope Nope NOPE 8|:/:topmodel:

    Let's hope it also takes use of Vulkan API.

    Good news I found out the seller of this card at x-3dfx I have muted the member named Erik J.A., after they messaged me and asked me if they should close the auction the auction is closed so that is the good side, but the downside is that well lets hope no one else tries out such insane amounts even for 5 or 9K USD for a Voodoo5 6000 Rev.A 3700 the fact is the value of the Voodoo5 6000 Rev.A 3700 could get influenced from this act of insanity.

    After this post I will get in contact with the owner of VA and send the evidence to him so none of you here at VA will have to deal with such situations.

    But the good news the Auction has been disabled! so i did manage something today :topmodel:…true&rt=nc&orig_cvip=true
    In the end I will always find out such types :saint:

    Greetings Obi Wan Kenobi,
    Admin of x-3dfx community @ Facebook.

    that seller on ebay gives the perfect wrong example to where 3dfx collecting is leading... they don't see it for the hardware it is but as a piece of fuck'n platinum or something...
    I call that seller the cunt of capitalism and that is just mildly said..

    Such people I will never help left alone any buyer that pay such a large amount for such a card won't get my aid either, at x-3dfx we disgust such actions.
    Just an other disappointment for all serious 3dfx card collectors alike.

    Hey all :)

    If any of you are seeking a cool Overload League there is the Overload Teams League aka OTL for short :)

    Check 'em out here:

    The OTL was founded by my friend roncli:respekt:

    This league will give it's players a very competitive gameplay within the game Overload, in forms of competitions to tourneys and just fun games alike

    You can join the OTL here view their discord:

    At the OTL we are always looking for new players, players can also make their own squadrons just as long they consist of 2 or more players.

    This gives the player more freedom as well.

    Overload is made by Revival Productions, which is based of the same developers that made the original Descent & Freespace series as Parallax Software & Volition Software.

    Hereby I hope to see many more new members and I hope it's okay for me to make this thread here.

    Well I made some new ones after enabling all the buildable items in creative mode and I gotta test that as well, somethings weren't great the Bio reactor being green or the color pallets on the Seamoth would go black minor things like that, to fix such things is a game restart in most casses.

    Eventho the Seamoth will be replaced with the Seatruck that to which also replaces the Cyclops submarine as a multi purpose deep sea transport and mobile base.

    Anyways here some pics of my underwater home named ECHO BASE, as I made it more dressed:

    Here some pics I took under the ice sheets and icebergs

    Here more about the Seatruck:…elow-zero-seatruck-guide/

    It's also uncertain if the Seamoth will be fully replaced by the Seatruck or not.
    I'll keep you guys updated on how that progresses as well.

    I test it 6 to 9 hours a day, yet some days I take breaks, due to my unstable illness issues I am dealing with atm
    So far I am loving Below Zero sometimes I make 20+ bug reports per day, which is good I really want this game to be clean before the release :)

    Final release is due in October of 2019, but they don't have an accurate release date yet, it can always be delayed as well so keep in mind that it can be 1 month earlier or later.

    us testers get updates every 2 weeks, every 1rst day of the month we get a major update and 2 weeks prior to that a mini update, so the devs are doing heir best to get things sorted out, many fixes made were from bug reports I sent in, so they are doing what devs do best.

    Hey all :)

    The past few weeks I have been beta testing Subnautica: Below Zero here some screenshots I made with my RX Vega 64 @ AMD VSR 2560x1600x32 Ultra settings

    There is a fake Voodoo5 6000 Rev.A2 2600 on ebay I am thinking it's one of @ketfri8002's cards heh.

    Okay off topic or not I am not caring enough for that right now.


    Can you please leave this place alone for once?

    You have nothing to seek here, and pestering the people here won't make you any better.

    The only one being immature is you, for constantly pelting this forum and harassing these people.

    It's best you leave it behind and leave these people be and move along, unless you seem to be lonely and only can feed on a on others by grieving them..

    That is all I am seeing here.


    Also I am asking for DerBiber to stop spamming and amusing me for such low minded thoughts, for thing I'd never do here, I really have no time for such acts :rolleyes:

    Got nothing to prove? don't assume it, say nothing keep it to yourself thanks and leave me alone, I say it kindly now, but I will be less kind next time, I will simply report you for harassment.

    And besides I would never come here to harass people, most people did not do me wrong here, I also been a member of VA for far too long to even reach such low levels of maturity.

    What I have been doing is being very busy with my own communities that are not even connected to VA and that is going just fine, plus they are drama free as well.


    These were my 6 best 3dfx ES boards:

    3dfx Velocity 200 AGP 16MB Rev.A0 2699
    3dfx Voodoo5 5000 AGP x4 32MB Rev.A0 3700 (1st card)
    3dfx Voodoo5 5500 PCI_DVI 64MB Rev.A1 2900
    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 AGP 128MB Rev.A 3700 + Late Voodoo Volts Rev.A 0030

    And later these two beauties:

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

    Sold them mostly to good fellas, people I knew well, just a shame about that Murfisor bloke though..
    If you seek more info of the Voodoo5 6000 Owners seek my thread here at EVGA:…ies-m2185131.aspx#2185131

    That topic has the latest version of my Voodoo5 6000 owners list, may come in handy to contact other Voodoo5 6000owners that did not post their S/N's for this thread.

    Although I am not sure if they all still have their cards some do but yeah all a matter of finding out I'd reckon.

    Hmm I see well I'd do what I can old friend, omega_supreme is a close friend of mine he has all revisions except 3700 he has the following cards

    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 AGP 128MB Rev. 4999-41 2x2 Comdex Board from 1999 from (Gdonovan, before him from FalonFly and before him from Nd4SpdSe before him from Clay Woodson)

    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 AGP 128MB Rev. A0 0700 ( from an ex-3dfx Engineer, dunno the name, non functional, but fixable))
    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 AGP 128MB Rev. A1 1500 (Nd4SpdSe's old card, this one is defect, Diodes CR1 & CR2 burnt out)
    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 AGP 128MB Rev. A1 1500 (Working card, no idea from who, I can ask, could be most likely from Clay Woodson, but I can ask about it , see what I can find)

    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 AGP 128MB Rev. A2 2600 ( From an ex-3dfx Enginee, dunno the name)
    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 AGP 128MB Rev. A3 3400 ( From Hank Semenec, also repaired by hank Semenec)

    3dfx Voodoo5 6000 AGP 128MB Rev. A 3900 (from HankSemenec)

    As for the S/N number would that refer to the U503 chip on the rear? Or the Serial Number?
    I have plenty pf photo's of my old Rev.A 3700 if you can point out exactly what you seek I may be of more aid :)
    Here my old gallery:…-Voodoo-Volts-Rev-A-0030/

    Anyways I hope I can help out more with this, even it has been a long time, i would have no idea who has what since I touched the lists for the last time somewhere in 2009 rofl

    But yeah I can ask around for sure and I already made a call out at x-3dfx, I also recently became co-owner & Senior admin at x-3dfx, I decided to return and help out with various 3dfx projects :)

    ugh... why am I in that list if I may ask???

    Everyone knows that my card was sold to one Murfisor guy... not something I prefer to be reminded of... the previous owner of my card was Hank Semenec himself my card was brand new and never used, Hank did the PCI-Rework and Gary tested it and applied the internal power hookup.

    But If you are going to make a list, it would make more sense to make a list of all the current Voodoo5 6000 owners... then adding TM .. heh good luck with that I guess... that is one of many reasons I never bothered.

    Some cards I do know the previous owners of, heck I had contact with all Voodoo5 6000 owners from 2005 to 2011 I believe that was.

    Previous owner of Erik's card was one Spaniard by the name of Markus if you were wondering.

    Klar, kann ich gerne machen. Ich schaue mal zu Hause nach nächste Woche. Ich hab mal ne Archiv-CD mit allem Sammelzeug erstellt. Es waren insgesamt mehr Karten. Ich hatte immer nur Angst, sie könnten in meinen Händen kaputt gehen, weiß ich noch.

    Aber ganz ehrlich, der wahre Hingucker war doch die Aalchemy 8164. Ich hab nie ganz verstanden, warum die bei Ebay damals immer für ne verhältnismaßig schmale Mark wegging. Ist vielleicht wie bei Schallplatten, denk ich mir. Heißt nicht Voodoo und steht nicht "not for resale" drauf.

    I don't sell any part of my collection that perfectly fits into a 10x10 framebox in my office. But I recently found an original 3dfx promo shirt with a spanish slogan on the back while tidying up. It won't quite fit into it... ;)

    You should return the tags to their rightful owners, was rather a lame thing to do man.

    Well I've always been a radeon guy I'm just glad I have an AMD GPU for everything just brilliant the image quality is amazing as well, nothing to complain for, I just make time and do it ya know :)

    As for Descent I played D1 since October 24, 1994 and D2 since May 01, 1995 not something I ca't stop playing the dmdb offers many new missions and maps to play, those games never bore me :)

    And running them at 4K with 200fps avr is plain funny :topmodel:

    Ah right well I can understand :)
    Mostly I take use of AMD VSR 2560x1600 every game I run and so far it Vega 64 does considerably well with everything maxed out, via ingame settings of course.

    Here some screenshots I took of the games I am currently playing

    VSR 2560x1600x32:

    Borderlands 2:

    Just Cause 3:

    Beasts of Bermuda:
