Guess what everyone doesn't sit down and take the time to memorize every single architextural detail of the 3Dfx (or any other cards). We don't use them sometimes, we forget (all of us forget at one point or another about stuff) that's why these type of forums exist.

What may be obvious to you may not to someone else, we don't all think the same, so go figure. It's just that simple, no need to bitch someone out for asking. And there is *no* such thing as a stupid quesiton.

Lecram -- I do appreicate that you don't want to get into fights -- but I have read other posts here and elsewhere and for whatever reason -- you do. I could write volumes - though I haven't the time. Nor do their servers have the space.

Don't go off on amp_man about you not wasting your time becuase you knowledge comes from the field in which you study/have studied -- absolutely no one knows these things about you or anyone else (most of the time - in cyberspace). Why didn't you come out fourthright with this type of information and you woldn't have to feel the need to bitch someone out?

I ask you to please -- stop jumping on people's backs, it's annoying as he** and it's hard to get along w/you if you keep doing that *every* *single* *time*.

Lastly Let's stop trashing these forums and do it either by email or IM or some other way - it's turning these posts into worthless garbage (no need to point out the hipocracy, by the way)

Every guy is free to ask about that you like on condition that:

1)The question is related to forum topic (if one opens a new thread)

2)The post is related to thread (if one enters in a discussion)

You are slipping off topic with these last replies so i have to remember that Hank started by this title: "Suggestions for VooDoo based projects".

Tnx to all for contribution.

Bye bye

just for the record a)I know that it has been 3 years since 3dfx went out of business, I bought my card second hand from a friend b) how on earth are we supposed to know that u are majoring in Engineering (and out of curiosity, where?), c) good luck keeping a job for long if you argue with your cooworkers as much as you argue with us, and d) I did not intend to offend any of the driver develpers here. Sorry Glide I just had to get that cleared up

*sigh* - these arguments are tapping me out.

=Getting back on track=

I got some great information on the x3dfx boards in regards to the questions I posed here:
http://pub43.ezboard.com/fx3dfxfrm1.showMessage?topicID=15827.topic

Any drivers developers here able to pull any of this off in any of the future release of AmigaMerlin driver set ot think that it would even be worth the time?

- hanksemenec and all others:

There is an example of Voodoo hardware "tweak" for you: please read or at least see the images in this one topic http://www.forumzone.it/link.asp?TOPIC_ID=9153 on our IT board.

Voodoo5 5500 is running with nice stability and memory/core overclocked after a little circuit modification to VSA power supply. Voltage is approximately 3.0V against 2.8V of default design. Also visual quality of rendering in some tested games like UT 2003 and Unreal 2 looks better...

I want know your opinion

Hank, here's an idea.
How about Dual Monitor Support for the V5 5500?

Also, core speed and memory speed are currently linked to eachother (166MHz core speed is 166MHz memory speed). It would be great to be able to control these two seperately.

Hi Guys,

VSA 100 is capable of supporting 1.5V signalling required for AGP4X slot. The IO voltage ring on the chip is isolated from 3.3V supply. There is voltage refference on V5 that will support 1.5V, but it is disabled through a pin called Sense. The mechanical problem of plugging V5 into AGP4x/8x slot can be gotten arround by using a riser. The MB will not burn since the IO voltage is isolated (AGP VDDQ Plane).

You will be limmited to PCI 66 speed, there will not be DMA! You can afford to send more virtex info and do texture paging upto the bandwidth limit of pci 66.

Hail to the king.....Baby (I think this one is better from Ash :-P)

I want to ask something. on PCI version of the V5 5500, the board has holes/locations for DVI output but I saw no cards having it. would it be possible to add the missing things and update the BIOS to one that suports it to have it on the card??????

or has I already said, TV-out(hard) or maybe dual VGA output(hard too)

It's possible. If you have the knowhow and the facilities to make this sort of operation then it's possible. Then you could pick up a dvi bios at Stanto's site:

yeah, I saw those bios, but , I'm not good on adding things on a card, the only thing I'm thinking is, if I do it, maybe the card won't work after I did it....maybe if, someone, I don't have the instructions/pieces/tools for this and I don't want to screw everything to end with a non-working card ...again!

I am assuming that you would have to add more than just the connectors. How much stuff would this be? We're still talking v5 5500 here.
