    Me and Deckard nearly DIED when we visited the local PC ardware dude for an upgrade on my Pentium 100 (going from 16mb to 32mb and 1mb PCI card to a 2mb Trio card ) and we saw the blokes partner playing a new Starwars game on a "3dFX Diamond Monster"

    We ordered one EACH...they were big dough back then.....way over £100 each......

    Oh to see Quake with the Open GL / Glide wrapper installed.

    I nearly expired with joy

    Its a damn good card

    Will
    How do you play MOHAA - got friends still with Voodo cards and they can't play it due to it not having D3D

    Heheh - I remember when a M8 of mine was raving about this new thing called Antialiasing which made older games look better by smoothing the jaggies, and it was something just 3DFX had designed ... just think if they'd released it before NVIDIA bought them out!

    Doubting the power f the force? (of the v5500 PCI)

    Well it does run both BF1942, and MOHAA. Dont know if it the drivers maybe.....i can run AA on single chip! o yeah...hehe

    yeah both mohha and bf are completly find. It prolly gets about 25+fps in each in vice city things go see through, and you cant see the time/only 3 cop stars.

    S/W T&L is dependant on the CPU. It probably isnt THAT slow on a 3.06 HT P4.

    I have a righteous 3d. And they can do D3d, just d3d up to d3d6 in hardware. They can use the drivers to emulate t&l (well the V3 onwards can).

    I don't see why they couldn't play anything out now.

    I own a PC that changes regularly, so I don't bother putting anything in here...

    Well duh

    Somewhat pointless if you actually were running it on that sort of a system though
