I found several references on the internet to a product called "3dfx Velocity 4MB UPG Daughter Board For Velocity 3D Product Only (3DFX)".
All references seem to link to a product for sale at amazon.com.
As far as I can gather from the name it's a memory addon for the Velocity 100 and 200 boards. However, I've seen loads of references which claim that a Velocity 128 is also from 3dfx while it actually is from STB (Pre-3dfx)

So, does anyone know if this is an addon for the 3dfx Velocity's (100 + 200) and if so, do you have more info about it?

From what I understand it only for the Velocity Series cards. It might work on the Voodoo 3 TECH since it pretty much the same thing. The only information I could find on it was this link and I know it's not much.

Hmm, EDO-RAM, Velocity 3D?
Why use EDO-RAM when the card (Velocity 100/200) itself has SGRAM memory?

Perhaps it is for the pre-3dfx Velocities

Except that the Velocity 3D used a chip S3 Virge VX 988 and owned 4 Mb Edo Vram + an upgrade module of 4Mb EDO DRAM.
The card was manufactured en 1997 by STB (who used already the name "Velocity") so before 3dfx bought the firm.

Great! That answers my question :D
To bad it isn't for the Velocity 100/200.
