The Voodoo5 6000 AGP from 3dfx represents the pinnacle of Voodoo5 technology. Taking advantage of the revolutionary scalable architecture of the 3dfx VSA-100™ chip, the Voodoo 5 6000 AGP features four processors working together to be the world's first 3D accelerator to break the Gigapixel barrier. Clocking in at over 1.33 Gigapixels a second, the Voodoo5 6000 AGP can create breathtaking 3D worlds in vivid 32-bit color. Boasting state-of-the-art Real-Time Full-Scene HW Anti-Aliasing, the exclusive T-Buffer™ Digital Cinematic Effects engine, 2D resolutions as high as 2048x1536 and a whopping 128MB of graphics memory, the Voodoo5 6000 is the ultimate 2D/3D accelerator for the hard-core PC enthusiast.

 

General Features

Benefits

Fully integrated 128-bit 2D/3D/Video Accelerator

It's not just for gaming! Voodoo5 6000 AGP enables outstanding 2D and video applications too.

128 MB of Graphics Memory

No, we're not kidding. How about having enough graphics memory to handle 1600x1200, 32 bits per pixel, with full-scene hardware anti-aliasing enabled?

1.32 to 1.47 Gigapixels Per Second Fill Rate

Not kidding about this one, either. The first gigapixel board delivers frame rates beyond belief. Virtually all games are limited by fill rate at resolutions of 1024x768 and above so the higher your fill rate the faster your game will perform.

Real-time Full-Scene HW Anti-Aliasing

Removes annoying jaggies and flashing objects from the image to dramatically improve the visual quality of any title, new or old.

T-Buffer™ Digital Cinematic Effect: Motion blur

Can be used to smooth motion to improve image quality or to exaggerate motion for special effects.

T-Buffer™ Digital Cinematic Effect: Depth of Field Blur

Enhances reality by rendering a scene as if viewed through a real lens. Enables artistic depth of field effects often used in cinema, such as blurring all but the most important objects in a scene.

T-Buffer™ Digital Cinematic Effect: Soft Shadows

Adds soft edges to shadows, giving them a much more realistic appearance.

T-Buffer™ Digital Cinematic Effect: Soft Reflections

Enables realistic reflections from semi-gloss surfaces like polished wood or stone and stainless steel.

FXT1™ and DirectX® Texture Compression

Dramatically reduces the size of texture images with no loss in visual quality; higher frame rates and better image quality. VSA-100 supports all five DXTC compression modes. Texture compression is critical for use of 2048x2048 and 32-bit textures.

8-bit Palletized Textures

The most widely used form of texture compressio. As with FXT1, palletized textures enable higher frame rates and enhanced image quality. Graphics cards that do not support palletized textures often experience severe game compatibility problems.

32-bit Rendering

Supports the highest possible image quality for the latest titles.

32-bit Textures

Allows use of the highest quality artwork seen in today's titles.

2k x 2k Textures

Allows you to enjoy the full impact of the most detailed artwork used by game developers; larger textures enable more complex, more stunning images.

24-bit Floating Point Depth Buffer (Z or W)

Virtually eliminates "Z aliasing," or having surfaces that should be visible being occluded and surfaces that should be occluded being visible.

8-bit Stencil Buffer

Improves image quality and realism by supporting a technique widely used by 3D content developers to create complex shapes such as shadows.

350MHz RAMDAC

Allows users to run at insane resolutions and incredible refresh rate --2048x1536 at 85Hz for example.

The industry's most complete API support: DirectX, OpenGL, and Glide

Assures the industry's highest title compatibility.

DVD hardware assist: planar to packed-pixel conversion

Assists DVD titles in running at 30fps without dropped frames.

Windows 95, 98, NT4.0 and Windows 2000 drivers

Allows you to run the Voodoo5 6000 AGP with all popular operating systems.
