I have just acquired a video card that is near and dear to my heart. The Voodoo 5 6000! 3dfx is the company that first got me really into video games and they paved the way for modern graphics cards. This has FOUR GPU's on it and was the company who invented SLI technology.
At the time of production, standard PC power supplies only had around 200W, and this card took about 50W of it, so they were going to come shipped with a separate power supply to help power the card.
Here is the beast:
The card you are looking at is one of approximately 150 cards that were manufactured, and of those 150 only 30 are thought to be still functional
... and one is sitting right in front of me. Don't hate
Here is where I will begin this thread:
A CAD model of the card. Things to cool in black, and things to avoid in red, and the very limited holes in the board. SUBSCRIBE to this post, so you can watch the progress as it goes along.
*update* block is finished 2 April 2012.
