Good evening friends :)  I am packing it in early tonight; this cold is hitting my head pretty hard.  However, before I go pound back a bottle of Robitussin I have a shot of juice for you :) PCI Express Feature @ Neoseeker "We take a look at PCI Express today at Neoseeker and ponder what it brings to the table. As much as everyone in the PC world loves backward compatibility, PCI Express is going to quash that notion introducing both a new physical and underlying interface ushering out the now ubiquitous AGP slot. The classic PCI interface will also be nudged out albeit more slowly. The transition from AGP to PCI Express has a profound impact for the gaming segment especially as... Read more...
The Advent of PCI Express ATI and NVIDIA Discuss Their Plans By: Chris Angelini March 23, 2004 There was once a time when running an intensive 3D game at a resolution of 1600x1200 was wishful thinking.  Frame rates were laughable, at best.  And what about Anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering? No can do. Believe it or not, that was a scant  three and a half years ago, when NVIDIA's GeForce2 Ultra roamed the earth devouring hapless RADEON and Voodoo5 cards, before swallowing the once dominant 3dfx whole.  Now where are we?  Blasting through the latest first-person shooters at that...

The 3dfx Voodoo3-3000 PCI  Leading Edge Technology For The Trailing Edge User   As we all know with any business, you go where the market is.  The old adage, "if you build it, they will come" works only in the movies.  Not long ago the PC platform standardized on the next generation PC Graphics Bus Interface, known as AGP.  The promise of increased bandwidth and performance was ushered in along with yet another variation in motherboard expansion slots.  As a result, many users who had just purchased a pre-built PC with on board graphics, may have been left out in the cold.  In addition, many of the new PCs being released still came equipped with on...

The 3dfx Voodoo5 5500 PCI 3D Graphics for a legacy system adds leading edge performance By Dave "Davo" Altavilla 8/4/00 These days technology moves so fast that there is almost as much of an available market opportunity supporting older platforms, as there is producing for the "bleeding edge" market segment.  PCI is an interface that has been in the PC architecture for years, as well as in the embedded space.  You can also bet your last buck that it will remain in the PC for many more years to come.  It is only fairly recently that AGP became the mainstream bus interface for 2D/3D Graphics cards.  There are still plenty of folks out there with out an AGP...

The 3dfx Voodootv 200 PCI Not just 3D Anymore... By Marco "BigWop" Chiappetta 10/24/00 Since their inception, 3dfx has been known as a leading manufacturer of high end 3D chipsets. From the beginning the Voodoo name was synonymous with gaming and has been a dominant brand at retail. They are arguably responsible for the entire PC 3D revolution  Their newest product to carry the "Voodoo" brand is the Voodootv 200 PCI. I know what you're all thinking, "So what's the big deal?"  Well, this Voodoo product has absolutely nothing to do with 3D or gaming for that matter! The Voodootv 200 PCI is an add-in TV-Tuner / Video capture card with features that place it... Read more...
