Consumer Democracy
25 October 2004

  • Excerpt: "...most games having a special 3dfx mode for the 3dfx range of cards, giving most games a signifcant speed boost and improved graphics. My voodoo 3 3000 also boasted a modded heatsync and fan, allowing me to overclock mine to speeds well beyond the factory settings, meaning i could get even more power out of the beast, much to the envy of my friends. but however, it came to my attention that cards cannot run at these kinds of speed all the time and it ...
  • Pros: Was such an awesome card for its time
  • Cons: is no longer an awesome card

  • Excerpt: "...of this card just before 3dfx were bought over by Nvdia, to replace the rather-useless-for-games 1mb ATI model which came with my old PC back in 1995. Adding this card appears to have been a real boost the the system as a whole, and all but the newest/most graphics intensive games run fine (The Sims etc run no problem) - despite the system only having a 300mhz processor. If your computer is getting on a bit and cant take an AGP card or came with on-board ...
  • Pros: PCI version  -  compatible with older computers
  • Cons: 3dfx went bust !

Beware the Voodoo curse

  • Excerpt: "...downloaded (not helped by the 3DFX closure). I had experts from all over the place tring to figure out what was wrong. We figured out that the voodoo card had taken a dislike to my soundblaster live card, but was never solved by any of the extremely qualified experts. I know what you're thinking. You're thinking 'he can't have tried everyhing', I tried everything and everyone. The system works fine in general, but is useless for playing any games ...

Explode your graphics

  • Excerpt: "Now that 3dfx have sold their assets to nVidia the future of Voodoo looks uncertain. A shame, because 3dfx produced excellent graphics cards, one of which being the Voodoo 3 3000 (PCI). The installation was very easy. You get a video tutorial on the CD of how to put the card in. After putting the card in the machine you just need to run the CD to install drivers and software that the card needs to run - the program does all of this for you. Remember ...
  • Pros: Brilliant picture quality, excellent frame rates, good compatibility
  • Cons: Poor software bundle, hard to find drivers

V3 3000 great value card

code_kev, Ciao
28 March 2001
  • Excerpt: "yes its old, but still very capible. You will not find a better card for £60 then this. It's fast, has an ok amount of memory, and only the most gaphically intensive games are even going to make it break a sweat. The only games to EVER cause my trouble are B17 flying fortress 2, and ultima asscention (which is pants anyway). This card is a steal at the price, it;s capible and will give an oldish system a real boost, I even saw quake 3 running on a ...
  • Pros: CHEAP for the performance
  • Cons: lackign new features, not enough mem

AGING BUT STILL POPULAR-3DFX VOODOO 3 3000

eaglesas, Ciao
22 January 2001
  • Excerpt: "...to be expected, after all 3dfx were the market leaders (until NVIDIA recently bought them)and so there are patches for the hardware's software including it's tools available from lots of internet sites and even on demo discs from PC magazines. Compared to other cards on the market NOW such as the Raedeon and The Voodoo 5 and 6, obviously this is older technology, and so it does not perform such miraculous graphical feats as T&L or 4 times AGP. ...
  • Pros: Ease of fitting, Support, Power .
  • Cons: Manuals conflicting, Not so great these days .
