Hi, i already asked in two other forums... it has to be a voodoo 2 with only one TMU.... one guy said, that its a rare budged voodoo 2 for asia?
and some other said that it could be a prototype, because of the yellow connectors and pins on the board...

Are there any numbers on the back?
Is there a company ID on the card?
What numbers are on the 3rd chip on the card?

yes indeed! seems a single-TMU Voodoo2.

you see, the lower chip is labeled CK which stands for Chuck - the FB chip. the upper chip is labeled BE which stands for Bruce - the TM chip.

these notations are specific to Voodoo2... funny thing, there was a movie where Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris fight in the end.

Regards,
Daniel Borca

than it looks like a prototype... cause the 500-0012-31 and 500-0011-01 is not listed on the page, you've given the link above...

edit: aah when i compare the numbers, my card is between a voodoo 2 and a banshee... (V2 has -0009- and -0010- and a banshee has -0013-

You own a prototype look at the date of the chip.
Even creative and Diamond didn't had chips at that date.

Start War and peace will be appreciated

but when its a prototype why this card has the "CE" approval...

but on the other hand... week 6 in 1998 is very early for a voodoo 2...

edit: look at http://www.thedodgegarage.com/3dfx/prototypes.htm and scroll down... first retail boards shipped on February 20th 1998... (=week 7)

uh...could it be a Voodoo1?
i saw a pic of one of em, the chips are stacked like that, and most Voodoo2's have 3 3dfx tagged chips
my guess is a Voodoo1, but it might be a concept Voodoo2

no, voodoo 1 is nearly impossible, because of the date and name of the chips (BE & CK) and that 100Mhz RAM. My guess, its a protoype of a low cost voodoo2... in fact, when it has only one TMU, it has the performance of a Voodoo Banshee! So perhaps 3dfx designed it as a very early Banshee (without 2D Part...)

But i think i can tell you what it's really is when i get it I'm awaiting the package... it comes from USA to Germany, so i think 2 weeks
