Why make trillions when we could make... billions?

Hum... turn it on the other side and look for a small sticker on the margin. Might find it's STB. I have one that looks almost the same. Only its "background" is not so grey!

Hi,

actually I do not own this card, it's from an ebay auction. The seller doesn't know the card's vendor so he sent me this picture.

Get it if its price is little (how much ?).

This Voodoo2 follows reference design so...

This card is an STB BlackMagic 3D, labeled with the legend "Product of Mexico" (where STB had its factory), and uses 100 MHz chips for all memory banks:

The other card shows a "Made in Taiwan" serigraph and seems to be using 100 MHz chips only for frame buffer memory; texture memory banks would be made of 90 MHz chips. VGA-in and VGA-out show differences, too.

Price is quite low now, but I expect it to raise up to 30 (~ $24) + shipping. I prefer to be sure about the vendor, and wait for a Powercolor or Diamond.

The seller doesn't own the original drivers ? Sometimes that can help if the cdrom has "a look".
Hum, 30 is a little expensive since you need to add the shipping costs.
Wait and go for a V2 with a "name", believe me the STB Black Magic is really a nice V2 and the box also !
