Hardgame heeft een review gepost van Metabyte's videoplank met Voodoo Banshee, de Wicked3D Vengeance. Van Metabyte mogen we normaal gesproken verwachten dat ze met iets bijzonders op de proppen komen (verbeterde drivers enzo) maar dat blijkt hier niet echt het geval te zijn:
Metabyte has not made any noticeable changes in the Voodoo Banshee hardware design. The card measures approximately 16.5 centimeters (6.5 inches) long and has a standard 0.5cm heatsink. As many Voodoo II overclockers have quickly learned, 3Dfx chips can get very hot, especially at high clock frequencies. It would have been nice if Metabyte included a larger heatsink and/or a heatsink and fan combination, since the Vengeance does get very hot. Unfortunately, the current cooling is not effective enough. The Vengeance actually needs to be clocked down to a 100mhz core frequency (from its default setting of 105mhz) and a memory clock of 110mhz (from its default setting of 115mhz), to run stably. Without these changes, random lockups would occur anywhere from 5-15 minutes after beginning gameplay or benchmarking. Even with the underclocking, the Banshee chip was too hot to touch after normal Windows 2D use and especially after a heavy 3D gaming session. One thing to note is that the stability of the Vengeance could improve slightly for users with a very well cooled case. The test machine’s heat level is average or slightly above average. However, no other cards tested have run into heat problems as the Vengeance did.
