With regards to performance, little was known until enthusiasts were able to get pre-release hardware and run tests on it. The Voodoo 5 is the unreleased high-end product in the Voodoo5 line. The results showed that the Voodoo 5 outperformed the GeForce 2 Ultra and Radeon , which were the fastest iterations of the GeForce 2 and Radeon R lines, respectively.

Select a valid country. Voodoo5 ReviewFiringsquad, The Voodoo 5 comes in three flavors: This mechanism allows for creation of effects such as motion blur if used temporally and anti-aliasing if used spatially.


All of the later revisions had the four chips mounted in a row. Later, unreleased boards were planned to offer a bit DDR memory design instead, in order to 3dfd board costs through lower complexity, while offering similar RAM performance.

The VSA chips used still did not have a long life expectancy, and may have had problems running anti-aliasing. With regards to performance, little was known until enthusiasts were able to get pre-release hardware and run tests on it. Get the item you ordered or get your money back.

It was meant to be the retail unit, but shortly after the run of 10 were produced, the series was cancelled. Learn More – opens in a new window or tab Any international shipping and import charges are paid in part to Pitney Bowes Inc.

No additional import charges at delivery! In some cases, the was shown to compete well with the next-generation GeForce 3. The limitation of px x px maximum texture dimensions was also addressed and VSA can use up to px x px textures.

Memory is clocked synchronously with the VSA chip. However, the process was tweaked with a 6th metal layer to allow for better density and speed, and the transistors have a slightly shorter gate length and thinner gate oxide.

This would have been an external device that would connect to an AC outlet. Please enter 5 or 9 numbers for the ZIP Code.

All members of the family were based upon the VSA graphics processor. Skip to main content. The name of the chip is an abbreviation for “Voodoo Scalable Architecture. The Voodoo 5 was the last and most powerful graphics card line that 3dfx Interactive released.


Initial models had the chips mounted in the arrangement seen in the photograph, but this required a PCB with eight circuitry layers most GeForce 2 cards were four-layer, while the Voodoo 5 was six-layer and would have been unreasonably expensive.

These cards were able to be powered by either the internal system PSU or by a proprietary 3dfx external power supply, a feature seen in all subsequent prototype revisions. One of the design goals for the VSA was scalability. Mouse over to Zoom – Click to enlarge. The VSA supports a hardware accumulation buffer, known as the “T-buffer”. While capacity is not cumulative across the entire card, bandwidth is effectively vooddoo and thus a card with 2x VSA processors has similar bandwidth to a single-chip graphics card using bit DDR memory.
