Retrieved from ” https: It natively supported Direct3D 5 and was notable for supporting all of its required features with adequate speed, unlike previous 3D chipsets such as S3 Virge and Matrox Mystique. Voodoo Graphics pretty much brought an end to Rendition’s oh-so-short hayday and occupied leading position for few next years. Like with all Voodoo cards, V3 will run games requiring early Direct3D features 8-bit paletted textures or table fog.

This can be prevented by activating VSync in the drivers or in the games, a solution which itself has the problem of causing mouse lag in many cases. Drivers and support are still offered 3ddfx community websites.

The card was tested and found OK. D [1] [2] [3] [4], BIOS ver. Effective color precision of 16 bit mode of 3dfx is higher, and that is why they stick with it for so long.

In February was released GLQuake thanks to efforts of 3dfx. 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 to x The success 3fx the company’s products led to renewed interest in 3D gaming, and by the second half of the s, products combining a 2D output with reasonable 3D performance were appearing.
