Bij Sharky Extreme staat nu een vrij uitgebreide review van de 3dfx Voodoo3 3500TV online. Hier wat info over zijn overklokbaarheid:
Since overclocking is so popular with gamers, we put the Voodoo3 3500 through the wringer to see what clock/memory speed it would be stable at. If you remember back to the Voodoo3 2000 and 3000, the overclocking success rate was pretty high, with most being able to progress to the speed of the card above it. That being the case, the Voodoo3 2000 could easily attain 166 MHz, while the Voodoo3 3000 was able to hit 183 MHz most of the time. Since the Voodoo3 chip is essentially the same in all models, and if 3dfx was having great chip yields, it's not surprising that high clock speeds were being attained with the lower-end cards.
The Voodoo3 3500 doesn't really follow in these footsteps and exhibits what you might call "diminishing returns". The 3500's 183 MHz clock speed must be getting very close to the limit of the design, since I couldn't get much over 193 MHz out of my review card. I could run games at a higher speed, but my desktop would sometimes get corrupted upon exit. Since the Voodoo3 has a locked memory/clock speed, I really can't say whether it was the added heat of the Voodoo3 chip, or if I was pushing the Hyundai 5.5 ns, 183 MHz memory too far. Either way, the V3 3500 does not overclock like the previous Voodoo3 cards, but the 193 MHz speed can still help with high-resolution 3D games. As with all video cards, Voodoo3 overclocking is a real crapshoot, and anything from chip grade to memory speed and brand can have an impact on your results. These overclocking results should not be taken as indicative of any other Voodoo3 3500 than the one reviewed here.
