i went to hynix website,and i found 2 of them HY57V283220T,HY57V283220T-I so i suppose it is the latter one as is the most similar to the toshiba chip found on the v5500.The voltage and pin is the same(that is wat i think).But both datasheet i can notices some different,so can the mod be fesiable?But if hank say it is possible i will believe him,but can you ask him to show some screenies and some instruction on doing the mod?

wow, you guys are really into doing this. PhoZy, are you the guy who had some sort of shop where you could do this? also, could you let me in on how much this ram's gonna cost? I might think about it myself, since my V5 will be out of a home very shortly.

People were all excited about this over at x3dfx a long time ago. It boiled down to a chip company down here in Melbourne, FL...
Guess what? It all fell through; which was a shame as I would have love to seen my v5 with 128mb of memory...

i dont really know a shop who ca do this,but i do know a person who is really good at soldering,and abt the ram ,i can easily get them,because in singapore the is a building(actually it is a shopping mall)which actually specially specialise in chips sales,so i could get them easily but as for the price i dont really know i hope it is not too expensive,now i only hope Hank could really give us some infomation abt the hynix chips,as i really want to know is the ram could be use on the v5500.And details on doing the mod.
(P.S,my english is not really gd,and pls dont laugh if the grammer sound weird to you)

don't worry, we've all gotten used to foreigners speaking english, and I imagine my spanish sounds about the same. Have you heard glide and amigamerlin? oh well, guess the great minds speak italian...
as for the ram, we must await hank...

EDIT: a link to the specs on the ram could be helpful to hank if/when he shows up again

yes, it's called SLI. you get another identical card (including manufacturer) then use the connector on the top to link the two together. not only do you get twice the RAM, but you also get twice the processing power, also. works similar to a V5, just with a little less power. I'm forced at this point to mention that this thread is based on VSA100 cards (if you read hank's first post), so lets keep it to V4/5 stuff, just so this doesn't get out of hand.

I think he was talking about adding extra ram to a single Voodoo2 board; I'm sure he knows about SLI

But like amp_man said, lets keep this to VSA-100 discussion...

One thing I am curious about:
Would it be possible to replace the VSA-100 chip with a VSA-101 chip and than replace the memory with DDR-SDRAM?

umm sorry guys i'm new to all this topic stuff..
I'll keep my questions vsa-100 based in future..

But still thanx for a response..

As to my earlier question could any1 with data on modding the V5 5500 please e-mail it to me i really am interested in all things Voodoo..

I still think if RnD had continued they would have passed the Nvidia and ATi offerings of today.. imho

I'm sure if you had the patience to, it probably could be done. On the other hand, i think the cost-and-time-to-performance ratio would be a little on the short side. where would you get a VSA-101 from, anyways?

How can you find out that you have a VSA-101 ? There are not any special remarks on the card , aren't they ?

In the 3dfx tools; in the info section. It'll tell you if you've got a VSA 100 or 101.
