“A never-shipped 3dfx Voodoo5 6000 AGP graphics card has popped up on eBay to tempt fans of historical GPUs. Speaking of fans, this boy has four of ’em, one each for the four VSA-100 graphics chips the board sports – along with 128MB of frame-buffer memory.
The full-length card requires a 3.3V AGP slot should the successful bidder care to try the thing out. It also requires a power feed from the host system’s PSU. Later incarnations of the card were bundled with their own, external power supply brick. The GPUs are clocked to 166MHz.”
