After reading a bit, it turns out that the AT3D chipset supports d3d.   VSA-100 3dfx Archive/Tech Talk Hi!<br />Does anyone know where can I buy VSA-100 chips?<br />I need 2 of them. Quantum3D AAlchemy SX BIOS modding 3dfx Archive/Tech Talk Hey, and that's gonna be MY avatar!  <img src="" border="0" alt="Grin" title="Grin" /> How is VSA 2x SLi works. Thoughts and questions 3dfx Archive/Tech Talk Hi!<br />Where is that manual? I would like to help , but I would like to see the manual.<br />Cheers<br /> Voodoo 1&2 memory diagnostics 3dfx Archive/Tech Talk I doubt there is unless there is one lurking around out there somewhere. Got a smashed Skywell Magic 3D 2 plus (idiot seller = bad shipping).  <img src="" border="0" alt="Cry" title="Cry" /> Avenger deadlock/crash ? 3dfx Archive/Tech Talk A friend of mine said to me :<br /><br />"For Voodoo3, I just remember that it is some combination of commands while the GPU is in a certain state... which leads to deadlock/crash"<br /><br />"No, this bug is in the PPC driver (and certainly also in the 68k). It does not cause a permanent slowdown. You can feel when it manifests itself : the display hangs a second... and unlocks software after hard reset the timeout + Voodoo3. About 2-3 seconds blocking, I don't know exactly..."<br /><br />"Lucky because it happens everywhere. OneVision had on Mediator 1200 + BlizzardPPC I think. And I had on Grex 1200. And when Bigfoot was bypassed in his own MorphOS driver, he understood that it was a universal problem that GPU... Bug fixed in the VSA-100 and Voodoo4 & 5"<br /><br /><br />Anyone here for more informations about this Avenger GPU bug ?<br /><br /><br /><br />Thanks a lot !<br /><br /> Mods for the Voodoo 4500 AGP? 3dfx Archive/Tech Talk you have to switch on second bank. check this forum, couple years ago guys explained it pretty detailed Strange Quantum3D devices in stock 3dfx Archive/Tech Talk Great!<br />When you get it, pleeeeeease make an image of the enclosed diskette(s) and scan the manual(s)!<br />I've already got some tools and PDFs for that, but the main part - SDK, including drivers (exactly what the guy has on that diskette!) is completely missing. I'm already trying to get that from Q3D support, but that correspondence is ridiculous - they are trying to escape from me with their EOL arguments, but I'm firm as a rock <img src="" border="0" alt="Grin" title="Grin" /><br /><br />Yes, that was me <img src="" border="0" alt="Smiley" title="Smiley" /> Btw I was VERY surprised that nobody else bid on it! And yes, it includes the GCI-2 as well as the QuickSilver II sticker. The rest of the lot is junk for me. HP/Compaq Voodoo 3, which one? 3dfx Archive/Tech Talk ok it's been to my attention that the special HP/Compaq model of the Voodoo 3 AGP is, in fact, a Voodoo 3 3500 converted to have a standard VGA connector, and without the TV module on it. But then it's detected as a Voodoo 3 3000 at 166Mhz, so my guess is it must be safe to clock it back at 183Mhz  if it's really a 3500.<br /><br />But now i wonder, which model(s) would it/they be?
