The result of all this new hardware is an ultra-fast card capable of full-screen antialiasing and 667 to 733 megatexels/megapixels per second fill rates. In 2D, it supports resolutions up to 2,048 x 1,536 at 85 Hz.
3dfx had also announced a PCI version of the Voodoo5 5500, which it says is still on track for a summer delivery. The company also announced the Voodoo4 4500, a single-processor, 32 MB version of the card, which is also on target for summer and should be available in both PCI and AGP versions.
Voodoo5 5500 AGP is priced at $299.99, $30 less than the originally planned price for the PCI version announced last month. Later this summer 3dfx is expected to ship a even higher-end version of the Voodoo5 card, the Voodoo5 6000, which will include quad VSA-100 processors and 128 MB of video memory, delivering 1.32 to 1.47 gigatexels/gigapixels per second.
