Voodoo4 4500 AGP - Voodoo4 4500 AGP
Wed Nov 08, 2000 | 4:49P| PermaLink
"You probably heard about the Voodoo4 4500 a long time ago, in fact probably well before GeForce2 MX or the Radeon 32MB SDR. The VSA-100 GPU a long with the Voodoo4 and Voodoo 5 lines were announced almost a year ago on November 15th 1999. It has taken its sweet time, but the Voodoo4 4500 is finally here. The question is, did it make it in time. It seems 3dfx has had a lot of trouble getting its Voodoo4 4500, and Voodoo5's our the door. The lineup for the VSA-100 is/was supposed to include 4 different cards, however there are only two currently on the market. The Voodoo4 4500 is the low end value card, with one VSA-100 chip and only 32MB SDR-DRAM. This is one of the cards that is currently available, it is available in both PCI and AGP. The next card was the Voodoo5 5000, this card was going to be only available in PCI, but now seems to have been scrapped. There is mention of all the other cards except this one on the 3dfx website. Next is the Voodoo5 5500, 3dfx's current top of the line video card. This card was the first card based on the VSA-100 architecture to be released, this card is also available in AGP and PCI. The Voodoo5 5500 uses two VSA-100 chips, and has 32MB SDR-DRAM for each chip. Finally is the Voodoo5 6000, this card is supposed to have 4 VSA-100 chips and a total of 128MB of RAM. This card still has yet to see the light of day. Many people are skeptical that it will ever be released, but it is still referenced on the 3dfx website.."
