Hi All,

I am going to start working on VSA 100 based projects (mods).

I would like to get some feedback, what you would like to see first.

1) V5 AGP 4X slot support
2) V5 more memory
3) 2x V5 SLI
4) 2x V5 6000 SLI

If you have any ideas your self, please post them. I will take a look at the feasibility.

Hank

I think V5 more memory would be the most important mod since each chip has only 32Mb RAM and a lot of games want 64Mb minimum. 64Mb RAM for each chip would be great.

Hi all

My main 3dfx dream is one Voodoo5 with AGP4X/8X compatibility so i can install this card in the recent motherboards in simple way and without AGP/PCI adapter. My dream includes that the mod is to do through a fast bios update using a old AGP 2X slot.
An abrupt awakening is caused to me from the presence of numerous mbs with AGP slot that requires a furthre notch for the physical insertion and that the Voodoo5 does not have.


You could explain me what you mean for Voodoo5 SLI? It would be possible to obtain an operation modality based on an similar idea to Voodoo2 SLI?

Why AGP 4X slot support ? I would like to put my V5 on the last mobo's ; for the moment i'm limited to my KT333's and i'm lucky because my 2 main mobo's support the Barton Fsb 333 mhz but a Barton 3200+ , wouah !!!

how more memory ? is it possible in hardware ?

between us, is it possible to use the system memory (in D3D and OpenGl) for the textures in mode pci, this is an option that we can see on the NVidia gfx cards... and that would be very useful but this is probably and rather a "job" for drivers...

HI!

I think that the first important think is the support to agp4x/8x motherboard, and next a full 128mb V5 5500

Even 2 V5 in sli is GREAT!!

Great news!
Here are my two wishes, ordered by importance:

The 4x thing-a-ma-bob notch would be most beneficial.

Hi,

So far a bit of news on AGP 4X slot support. I did some looking arround, and found AGP wear extenders. This might make the AGP 4X slot possible for most people. I was going to cut a new key in the existing V5 AGP connector, but internal PCB planes extend into the area. If you cut into the PCB you will expose power planes and can cause a short.

I'll see if I can get an extender with 4X key cut on one side and universal socket mounted on the other. Most of the cases can support the aded height on the V5, but the bracket will have to be modified. VGA connector is low enough on V5, there would be no problem in connecting monitor to the shifted V5. The cost of the extender from 3rd party is about $50 US from what I have found so far.

Next VREF to VSA100 must be modified and a couple of straps. I have to check on AGPCLK, INT and RESET if the pins are still 3.3V on AGP 4X.

I do not know if this is the place for me but....


All of you are talking about V5 SLI, 4X AGP, More Memory... bla,bla,bla... I have something in mind:

-OpenGL 1.4 Support (And don`t tell me that the AM3.0 support this beacuse the best OpenGL is 1.1; I already tested the 1.1 in a 1.2game "NWNights" and there are a lot of things that are missing!)
-Full Dx8.1 Support (Of course is better 9.0 support but 8.1 is cool; Im talking about T&L Shared, PixelShader, BumpMappings, Anisotropic Filter, Reflexions, Refraccions, other stuffs like that; You can see it running TombRaiderAngelOfDarkness)

Note: All of that was for: (V4 4500 vs GeForce4 MX440) all in AGP2.0 4X, 256MBDDR, P4 1.8GHz.
