Callahan's right Wink hahaha… I can talk about my passion over and over Grin

Just visit my website. Despite V5 6k and some Obsidians, 3dfx are not the strongest part of collection. I'll be able to tell more when you'll be interested in sound cards (or colour themed retro builds  Cheesy )...

1.) Biologist, physicist, amateur basketball player Wink
2.) 1979
3.) I saw some adversitement at Secret Service Magazine
4.) InnoVision 3DXRush 6MB
5.) I really don't know. some Voodoo 3's, some 2's, one Voodoo Grpahics, few Rushes...
6.) I/O Data Voodoo Rush
7.) Yup... InnoVision 3DXRush and PowerColor EvilKing 4 32MB AGP
8.) Welll, my friend bought new computer with 3dfx before me. I've looked at box od Helios Vooodoo Rush. He said: "You looks like you saw Jesus..."
9.) Until last of us remember this moment when 3dfx-accelerated game was on...
10.) I do not, I had a lot of them about 10 - 12 - 15 year ago. Now I only have those, which i really use.
11.) No, it wasn't. BUT i was young since then, world was so much bigger and had so many secrets. I think it was SPECIAL.
12.) Yes... Well: Poland, Australia, USA, Espania, Germany... etc..
13.) It would be the same. If not 3dfx, then someone else has had to take a step into 3D game acceleration.
14.) It was debute of 3DfX cards and 3D-accelerated games. Like Quake, Tomb Rider...
15.) Of course! Wink
16.) Too late, too expensive.
17.) As I remember moste of PC enthusiasts spoke more of new coming features like T&L than fillrate. So it was dead end.
18.) 3Dfx should focus on the chips production, not cards. And on the shortening of the design process.
19.) They pulled 3dfx to the bottom.
20.) I still love to see the 3Dfx spinning logo at the start of Q1. Wink

I never think that a man can do this, I am listening them now. It is VERY curious. Do you have more?

I have visited your web and see that you want a Blood 1, I think I see one several weeks ago to sell in a groupo of whatapp, I will ask about it.

Congratulations for the soundcard, it is very interesting.

Thanks a lot!

Unfortunately SoundCloud has limit that's why there are not more. I have some more recordings in my "archive" but not from all cards yet. This is very long term process - to do it all - free time for hobby is the most desired thing theese days.

Please as about that Blood 1... some time ago there was one on eBay but it was only box in really bad shape Sad
