Hello everyone,

I've just started a site about 3dfx. Here you can find a lot more about the history of 3dfx and some more details on the cards they've made. But it's not nearly as finished as I want it to be. So what I wanted to ask is if you guys want to give me comments on how to improve the site. Comments on the information, pictures, links, layout etc. Just contact me if you have any suggestions by clicking on Contact on http://3dfx.i-cey.net. Thanx!

One hint for the "Future products" section :
The rampage was NOT part of the voodoo line of cards. It was the first card of the spectre line. So Voodoo Rampage AGP is not correct, better write 3dfx Rampage AGP, or Spectre 1000 AGP.

SPECTER was an internal name. If you remember James Bond, the you know what it stands for

Offical Product name was not assigned to Rampage boards.

Since Rolo01 said "The Rampage was NOT part of the voodoo line of cards. It was the first card of the spectre line" and hanksemenec said "Offical Product name was not assigned to Rampage boards", why this name "Rampage", who named the Card "Rampage" ? Is it a "special" meaning for this name ?

Well I guess that Rampage is a codename like Napalm(Vsa 100) and Daytona(Vsa 101). Spectre is what 3dfx wanted to call the line of cards when they would have been released. At least, that's it for as far as I know.

Rampage is a code name for the chip. Habanero was it's predecessor (RAMPY with 256 bit DDR memory bus).

SAGE is a code name for the chip (lead engineer "Captain Inverter")

SPECTER is a code name for the board (SPecial Executive for Control, Terrorism, Extortion, and Revenge.) Name was picked by the boards designer "Brian a.k.a. Crap With Legs"

Hank a.k.a. FUBAR or Crap with Hands

Allright, so all the chips of the time get the name rampage, sage etc. The board name is spectre. I'll see if I need to change anything on my site about that. Greetings, Bas Kapteijn

edit: Allright I've changed the name Spectre Rampage on my site in Spectre (rampage) and Spectre 1000 / 2000 etc. That might be more correct. Thank you hank sematic and the rest of you guys!

Bas, you seem to be missing the VoodooTV FM and the DesktopTV/FM
Also, there's a V3 with HW T&L if I'm not mistaking, saw it somewhere, will look it up later today.

Velocity 200 is a prototype, never got sold as retail.

Did you get some of the info from the 3dfx topic @ GoT?
Most of the info in there is outdated, I'm in the proces of designing a new topic for it.

my PC:
AMD Athlon64 3200+ - ASUS K8V-Deluxe - 1GB DDR400 - 3DFX Voodoo 5 5500 PCI
