The Voodoo Banshee represents the beginning of a new era in 3dfx's history, with their announcement that they will no longer produce dedicated 3D chips (ie chips without an integrated 2D engine), 3dfx is committing itself to a wider market segment, supplanting its gaming only roots.
The Voodoo Banshee is the first chip of this new era of 3Dfx.
The FUSION is the same as other Banshee-based cards.
The card runs 16 MB of 125 MHz SGRAM on a 250 MHz RAMDAC,
allowing for very quick RAM access and eliminating a potential block to overclocking.
The most important part of the fusion isits 3D acceleration, and this is where it shines.
One of the extra's Diamond included is a very large fan and heatsink.
Yet Diamonduses the heatsink/fan for another reason: to overclock the card.
The Monster FUSION is the fastest of the Banshee-based boards. Street Price $ 120.-
