Review Zone heeft een review van de 3dfx Voodoo3-3500TV neer gekwakt. Hier een stukje over die leuke TV-in/out friemels van deze kaart:
The Voodoo3 3500TVís PCB is a very tightly packed affair, with six 2MB SDRAM chips on the front of the PCB and another 2 on the back which brings the total RAM count -as with the other Voodoo3 offerings- to 16MB. The board has two voltage regulators, one near the AGP connector, again like all the other Voodoo3s, and another for the TV tuner. Just below the second voltage regulator is a Micronas MSP3430G sound processor for converting the FM/TV input sound signals, which also drives the two audio interface ports at the top of the card for interfacing with your sound card.
The TV tuner in the 3500TV is Philips-made and takes up a lot of the space on the PCB, it features both coax FM and TV inputs that connect directly to the shielded Philips tuner. Even though the card is definitely more packed with capacitors than any other card I have seen so far, the surprising fact is that the length of the card remains the more or less the same to that of its slower siblings.
This card sports no VGA output, rather a 30-pin Plug & Display output port which connects to the 3500's AV break-out-box which contains a split cable for an analog VGA input. The P&D port is powered by the Xilinx 9572XL controller that also functions as a sort of connection between the video capture and the Voodoo3 chip itself, therefore allowing 3dfx to leave the Voodoo3's current design unmodified while adding support for a FM/TV tuner and video capture, which saves them the hassle of refabricating the chips.
