|Most of you have probably heard of 3dfx's
upcoming voodoo 2. With claims of 100+fps in Quake (640x480 GL) , this
card will most likely be the strongest blow to the video card markety since
the original voodoo. With support for both AGP and PCI , as well as a special
SLI mode , in which 2 Voodoo 2 cards cooperate together to acheive double
the speed , The Voodoo 2 will dominate for years to come. The Voodoo 2
features more RAM than the original voodoo , anywhere from 6Megs (2frame/2texture/2texture)
to 12Megs or RAM on a single card. (4/4/4). The Voodoo 2 uses a unique
192bit memory architecture to acheive bandwith in excess of 2gig/sec!!
The only worry I have about this card is the price. The Voodoo 2 will most
likely cost around 300$ , a hefty sum of money for a 3D only card. As it
stands , the Voodoo 2 has no competition right now , however Highlander
and the upcoming V3300 are planning on changing this...
