Bij CombatWorld is een klein verslag te vinden van een 3dfx Voodoo5 6000 kaart in actie tijdens de E3 beurs in Los Angeles. Ze kregen Quake 3 Arena te zien op een resolutie van 2048x1536 en het bleek nog bespeelbaar ook! Verder wordt er gemeld dat de V6-6000 in juli uit zou moeten komen voor de prijs van $600 dollar zoals we eerder al te horen kregen.
After a long day at E3 in Los Angeles. One of the best things I saw other then Lara Croft was the Voodoo5 6000. The card is supposed to be out in JULY and Nvidia is going to have a tuff time in the Video Card war against this beast. This Video card will definitely be the head of the market until The NV20 appears. 3dfx gave Mjr. Killer and I (Caveman) An after hour showing of the Voodoo5 6000 with a small handful of other people.
The V5 6000 was put together 3 days before so it could be seen at E3. The clock on the board still has to be moved. And the drivers are still Pre-beta. It has 4 VSA-100 chips with a fan on each. What really Surprised me was when they pulled the sheets back was the big power supply that sat on top of the computer. It also carried 128 mgs of SDRAM at 166mhz clock speed. I asked why not use DDR instead? They said they had to use SDRAM to keep the price down. The Price of the card will be around $600.
They showed us Quake3 at 2048x1536 that kept a very playable frame rate. The 2nd game was Nascar3 showing the deferences between anti-aliasing on and off. With it on I wasn't able to see any frame rate loss. Almost all the Jaggies disappeared (I think its almost impossible to get rid of all of them). There shouldn't even be a feature on this card to turn anti-aliasing off. Most of the games at the show ran a Nvidia GTS. The V5 6000 FSAA has took another step beyond!
