THE GOOD: 1)it has 128 megs of ram which is a plus for a card this old. 2)it runs just as fast as my old radeon 64 meg ViVo with ddr ram. 3)it just looks cool. 4)it's a 3dfx product. 5)it handles fsaa MUCH better then its predocessor the voodoo 5 5500 did.
THE BAD: 1) it needs a exteral power suply (which with some slight modification of the card can be avoided) 2) it never made it to main stream.
SUMMARY: I bought my voodoo 5 6000 off ebay and ever since then I have never felt a need to upgrade to anything higher (unless of course I find a tester of a rampage card hehehe ;D) but I don't really think there is much need to get a card other then this one I meanit runs great it has AWSOME frame rates in unreal turnament (I have yet to test it in ut2k3) but this card has yet to show me a major flaw yet I just really wished that 3dfx could have stayed in business long enough to release the rampage that would be the only reason I would ever want to upgrade from this card.
THE GOOD: very impresive wicked performance look ability and quality
THE BAD: they are too expensive ... thats the only reason i why cant give it a perfect 5
SUMMARY: these are my comments...
i love voodoo graphic cards, ive had a voodoo 2 and 3 and never once had problems with neither , in fact i still have the voodoo 3 , if voodoo could only some how budget there prices to make them cheaper voodoo would be top in sales
THE GOOD: OMG!!!! Everything that 3dfx made it out to be
THE BAD: Nothing
SUMMARY: Finally got my hands on one. (1/100 made) A rare catch indeed! Was very impressed with the 8x FSAA. Loaded all of my games back into my computer with the Voodoo5/6k and all worked fine. (Quake 1/2/3,Deus-EX,etc..) T-buffer with Glide and D3D is outstanding!! Motion Blur is fast-takes a while to get used to. Just a "kick-butt" card. It's a damn shame Nvidia bought-out 3dfx to kill this card and what was to be the newer "Rampage". If you can find one of these cards get one!!!!
THE GOOD: 1) The first (or the second - after Geforce3 ) to exceed the barrier of 1 Gigapixel per second!!! 2) 128MB (Are u kidding?) Video memory 3) Full DirectX support and new Anti-aliasing technology for the SMOOTHEST and the SHARPEST graphics. 4) 32bit color rendering and textures at maximum resolution 2048x1536 5) AGPx4 (or possible AGP PRO slot) with TV-OUT
THE BAD: The only drawback is it's price, but i think that 3dfx will eventually please its loyal customers and decrease it.
SUMMARY: This is the pinnacle of Graphics technology - At last Nvidia is seriously threatened!
This beast is a real state of the art... I can't wait to see this wonder come into market!
It's time for 3dfx (or Quantum) to show who is the boss!!
