Hi all does anybody know what happened to the comdex 1999 Voodoo5 5500 AGP Rev A0 board:


here the card we all know better the Rev.A1 0900:

as you can see it has no 4.7 Volt coils in the back area near the Molex Power connector, I have seen cards much like this one but instead of small SMD like transistors infront of the VSA-100 chips the cards we all know have small round cappacitors there instead.

Anyways If somebody has this unique card would be nice to see ultra High res pics of it, and some more info on what speeds it's cores and ram run and what PCB date it would have, would week 48 1999 be a possibillity?

cheers,

Ben Kenobi.

the coils are still there, they just have a different package style. and the 4.7 doesn't stand for "volts" but micro or milli HENRYS. they're inductors, not capacitors. the transistor looking things next to the VSAs ARE capacitors, just in a different package style (again)....

Bloody Mess

@ Bloodworm

please don't post so pointless, if you have nothing serious to post just skip it okay?

almost everyone knows that the second place was meant for a second VGA, and there are a few 5500 Rev.A0 4499's with dual VGA, I just would like to know what happened to that comdex Voodoo5 5500 card, didn't ask for pointless posts from you Bloodworm...

and those coils do mean for 4.7 Volts Gdonovan once told me that.

Well,if they're coils it's micro Henrys (uH)
I can't belive you're arguing about that

just because SLI never made it to the VSA100, that doesn't mean that the engineers weren't thinking ahead when they layed out the prototype boards...... SLI is already on the V5 via the two VSA100's, so the extra VGA connector may have been a remnant of some past board or future thoughts by the engineers. Maybe it was the only connector thay had lying around to test the digital interface at the time. Hank could clarify this point.
