Oppertweaker Tom heeft een preview van de 3Dfx Voodoo3 in z'n hardware guide geparkeerd. Hier krijg je wat info over last-minute changes in het V3 plan van 3Dfx:
Itís only a few weeks ago when 3Dfx announced that there will be three different Voodoo3 chips or cards, the Voodoo3 2000 will still stay the same as announced at Comdex 1998, running the chip and the memory at 125 MHz and thus not being a great performer, but Voodoo3 3000 will now come with reduced specs, 166 MHz for chip and memory clock while Voodoo3 3500 takes over the specs of the previously annonced Voodoo3 3000, with 183 MHz chip and memory clock. This seems a bit odd already, making it look as if 3Dfx is not getting a good yield of 183 MHz parts, so that the majority of Voodoo3 chips will only run at the 166 MHz clock and the 183 MHz chips will only be available in limited numbers. 3Dfx is also facing the fact that thereís hardly any memory that runs at 183 MHz, which complicates things additionally.
Meer stuff in een, zoals we van Tom mogen verwachten, zeer uitgebreide preview op THG.
