I had a discussion with someone on a Dutch forum in which we talked about the memory on Voodoo 3's.

I made the following statement;
V3 PCI versions have SDRAM
V3 AGP versions have SGRAM

Someone else stated;
Velocity's have SGRAM
Voodoo 3's have SDRAM

Now, I have reason to doubt that person's statement since there are only two Velocity's and three Voodoo 3's (not counting the 3500).

Can someone explain the situation with the SDRAM/SGRAM to me?

So there really is no pattern for which cards have SDRAM and which cards have SGRAM?

Well what you have is actually a "3dfx Velocity-100 AGP 8MB"

they run with core/mem 125Mhz Synchronised

The "3dfx Velocity-200 AGP 16MB" has also been mistaken by a "3dfx Voodoo3 2000 AGP 16MB" but it does not run with core/mem 143Mhz , it also runs like the "3dfx Velocity-100 AGP 8MB" which is: core/mem 125Mhz Synchronised.

I own V3 2000 PCI SGRAM. It is very rare indeed, so i've heard. Card has 4 memory chips , not 8 like sdram's. Of course it is 16 MB card (4x4). Faster than V3 2000 sdram AGP which I had long time ago.. Great card !
