3dfx never released a quad-GPU Voodoo 5 6000 so a modder built a custom one

32 Views

A hardware modder, and apparent graphics accelerator historian who goes by Anthony, has built a clone of the Voodoo 5 6000, an insane graphics card that did actually exist at one point, but only within the walls of 3dfx HQ. The quad-GPU card was never released to the public, leaving us forever wondering what might have been.

Anthony posted the details of his nifty reverse engineering efforts on Mod Labs (via HotHardware), noting the cloned card does not have an official name just yet. However, it shares the same hardware specifications as the Voodoo 5 6000, including four VSA-100 graphics chips operating at 166MHz and a regular PCI (read: not PCI Express) interface.
