Hello everyone,

I hope that you enjoyed christmas and had a good transition to this year.

It's 2018 now, more than 17 years after 3dfx's demise. But we're still here! And there are some German geeks that are still writing articles about 3dfx. They were even doing brand-new benchmarks with Voodoo cards and their competition. Please have a look at this retro special, which has been translated to English for your convenience:

http://www.pcgameshardware.de/3dfx-Voodoo-Hardware-255488/Specials/3dfx-Voodoo-Retro-Special-1246582/

The article contains some history, an interview with Oscar Barea (you all should know him) and, what is the most exciting thing, new benchmarks with games from 1999 to 2005. To make it even more special, a modified Voodoo 5 5500 AGP with 128 megs @ 210 MHz is included in the benchmarks. The results and analysis tell us what AGP and Hardware TnL were really worth - and much more.

Have fun! And please spread the word. Take all people in the world on this retro trip. 3dfx may be gone, but the audience is still listening.

Greetings from Germany,
Raff
