The Future of 3Dfx
3Dfx Interactive announced today its first implementation of its new Voodoo Scalable Architecture technology. The first processor in this series is the VSA-100. This chip is capable of using one to 32 chips per system, using scan-line interleaving (SLI). The Company also announced the Voodoo4 and Voodoo5 board products based on the VSA-100. The Voodoo4 family of products feature single-chip implementations of the VSA-100 architecture and are targeted to deliver great performance at mainstream prices. The Voodoo5 family of products feature multi-chip implementations of the VSA-100 architecture including both dual-chip and quad-chip configurations. The Voodoo5 will be similar to having a Voodoo2 SLI configuration on a single card.
