GamePC heeft een artikeltje neer geplant met het videokaarten nieuws dat zei op de eerste dag van de Comdex bij elkaar wisten te rapen. Bovenaan in het lijstje staat uiteraard de 3dfx VSA-100 (Voodoo Scalable Architecture), die gebruikt zullen worden in de Voodoo4 en Voodoo5:
Throughout his presentation, Sellers stressed the importance of fill rate. Citing that Q3 at 1600x1200x32 would require about 1.2 gigapixels per second of throughput to maintain 60 frames per second. He also agreed that hardware T&L (transformation and lighting - found on upcoming S3 and the current NVIDIA GeForce chip) is the way of the future. Sellers stated, "3dfx will have HW T&L when it matters in the market." The T-buffer features were alse presented again. Full screen spacial and temporal anti-aliasing (getting rid of the jaggies and motion blur) along with soft shadowing and field of depth effects are designed to make 3D graphics more like the cinematic effects we've come to expect from the like of ILM. Unfortunately, no new pictures were available of these effects. The FSAA effects of the T-buffer will be fully supported out of the box. No software optimizations will be needed.
