Creative 3D Blaster Voodoo2 ... and higher frames per second. A new feature on the 3D Blaster Voodoo2 is ability to use two identical cards to ramp up performance. The Scan Line Interleaving (SLI) function has one card display odd number fields, and has the other card display even number fields. This can produce up to 100 frames per second using two 3D Blaster Voodoo2 cards. The 3D feature set for the 3D Blaster Voodoo2 is extensive. The bump mapping is very similar to true Phong bump mapping, and the edge anti-aliasing eliminates more jagged edges. The multiple textures per pixel add more detail and color to visuals, and special effects include reflections and shadows. And of course the 3D Blaster Voodoo2 supports 3D features such as Z-buffering, transparency, MIP mapping, and more.

This thing may be old, but it is still a good card. I admit though, there have been some major breakthroughs in the last year, and other 3dfx cards have entered the higher end of the market, after the Voodoo2 from Creative Labs pretty much having the monopoly. It's a strong card and well manufactured, and that's why the Voodoo2 hasn't become obsolete, despite the great advances in computer technology. If you can't afford a new card, and need something a little cheaper, this is a definite. It can still handle a lot of top games ('Half-life', 'AVP' 'Armada' etc.) as long as you have it beside a good 2d card, (I recommend ... Read the complete review

I needed to run two good monitors but already had one set for a good graphics card. I looked around and found that this one would be suitable for my needs. It has an excellent chip set, and fast refreash rates. The only problem was a splitter for two different pictures. Well some freeware on a BBS solved this problem and now I can do many things I once thought improbable. I teach with this sytem one card outputting to a teacher screen and the ohter to a large Flat screen or projector. On my screen it shows what should be on the other a student assignment. Brilliant ... Read the complete review

Manufactured by Creative Labs: Reference drivers only availabe from: WWW.3dfx.com This is the card I use to have in combination with and ATi rage pro. I have to say I was sad to see it sold yesterday you can now pick up one of these babies for around 20 to 40 quid at computer shows/2nd market. The card is itself very reliable and is compatable with everything at one point I had it running with my Tnt2 ultra. Resolutions supported up to 800 * 600 anything else just wasn`t worth it unless you had 2 of them strapped in you PC then were they fast. The major drawback was the card was only 16bit so no 32bit colour. The drivers ... Read the complete review

I recently bought a second hand computer and included inside of it was a Voodoo 2. Instantly I thought.....AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! This was a bit harsh so I tried a simple game on it, Half-Life. Now this card is accelerating a SiS620 Graphics card with 20 Megabytes of RAM in total on both boards...and when I ran Half Life in 800 x 600 mode, I was suprised. It ran smoothly, graphics were slightly blurry BUT still very good. My frames per second were not that good, but still superb for the card and way ahead of its time. Suprisingly I can also run Quake 3 Arena and Unreal Tournament on this card and I have to admit, it is a very good piece of hardware. I would reccommend ... Read the complete review
