When I got home, I was surprised to see that the box was packed full of goodies. I suppose the reason is clear. The card was tested with all the usual 3D games and benchmarks.

The software provided contains a VCR function which gives you the ability to capture movies directly into the hard drive. This 2D engine led the Voodoo3 to be considered one of the more high-performance video cards of its generation.
3dfx Voodoo3 TV
I remember when 3dfx released the Voodoo2 line of graphic add-on cards, most 3D gamers rushed to get one of them. The drivers were similar to those you would see on the other Voodoo3 drivers.
Com, accessed August 30, As indicated in the earlier part of the review, I failed to capture any decent videos with the Ulead software due to dropped frame rates. Thus, you would need a large 25GB hard disk to give you enough space for 25 hours of videos. The largest component was the RF box for the TV input which contributes to much of the weight. A fan would have done the card a lot of good as the heatsink was extremely hot. However, additional cooling would mean sacrificing an additional PCI slot.
The 3D performance was, of course, much better as compared to the Voodoo2.
How come I’m not surprised? However, I was unable to capture any decent videos as I kept getting dropped frames which is a real letdown.
In itself at MHz, 3rfx chipset was already hot enough to fry an egg. I think we all know what the arguments are, so I shall just leave this part to your imagination.
At the release of the Voodoo3 and even the TNT2, the main point that we tried to convey was that both the Voodoo3 and TNT2 are intermediate solutions, they are essentially performance and feature upgrades to previous technologies and aren’t based on revolutionary new cores.
3dfx Voodoo3 3500 TV
The 3dfx TV tab allows you to enable TV output. Without the cable, there’s no way to plug the monitor to the card. Its previous products were 33dfx add-on PCI cards that help boost 3D game performance. Just before its launch, due to relatively small performance differences between the 350 generation Voodoo2 SLI setups and a MHz Voodoo3 in addition to high yields on Voodoo3 parts, 3dfx made the decision to up the clock speed of the to a more healthy MHz frequency.
Still, I’d consider the Voodoo3 the winner in this category. Log in Don’t have an account?

However, you may need a larger hard disk space as the encoded files are huge. Although no active cooling was present, the card ran without any problems, no glitches and no hang-ups. However at this year’s E3 Expo 3dfx re-announced that the would be made available with a few new features that weren’t in the original specifications for the card.
I intended to include a short video clip but the size was just too huge to be included in this review.
In addition, the Voodoo3 consisted of one multi-texturing pipeline, the TNT series consisted of twin single texturing pipelines. To save framebuffer space, the Voodoo3’s rendering output was dithered to 16 3050.
