The Voodoo3’s RAMDACwhich took the rendered frame from the framebuffer and generated the display image, performed a 2×2 box or 4×1 line filter on the dithered image to almost reconstruct the original bit color render.
In addition, the Voodoo3 consisted of one multi-texturing pipeline, the TNT series consisted of twin single texturing pipelines. Retrieved from ” https: Avenger was pushed to the forefront as it offered a quicker time to market than the already delayed Rampage.
To save framebuffer voodooo, the Voodoo3’s rendering output was dithered to 16 bit. Voodoo3 was a series of computer gaming video cards manufactured and designed by 3dfx Interactive. Avenger’s other remarkable features included the bit GDI accelerator debuted in Banshee. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This page was last edited on 27 Julyat The internal organisation of Avenger was not complex.
This offered better quality than running in pure bit mode. The and boards generally differed in their support for TV output; the boards also carried a 33 tuner and provided a wide range of video inputs and outputs. Although the Voodoo3 was a replacement for the Voodoo2, it was often beaten by Voodoo2 SLI cards in direct comparisons.
Much was made of 3dffx christened ‘Avenger’ and its bit color rendering limitation. The ‘Avenger’ graphics core was originally conceived immediately after Banshee.
It pck the successor to the company’s high-end Voodoo2 line and was based heavily upon the older Voodoo Banshee product. The last set of drivers officially released for the Voodoo 3 on Win9x was version 1.
The Voodoo3and differed mainly in clock frequencies memory and core were synchronous.
However, a controversy arose over what happened next. With the purchase of STB Systems, 3dfx had acquired several popular brand names.

For Win the latest version is 1. Dual monitor support with V1.
In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Avenger was thus merely a Voodoo2 with an integrated bit 2D video accelerator and twice the clock speed. Webarchive template wayback links All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from November Enthusiasts discovered that it was possible to enable the disabled TMU with a simple registry alteration . Pre-setup notably featured a guardband clipper eventually part of hardware transformation and lighting but the pixel pipeline was a conventional single-issue, dual-texture design almost identical to that featured on Voodoo2, but capable of working on bit image data as opposed to Voodoo2’s pure bit output.
In addition, one of the texture management units came disabled as well, making the board more like a Banshee. This 2D engine led the Voodoo3 to be considered one of the more high-performance video cards of its generation.
Com, accessed August 30, This was in fact quite complex, as Voodoo3 operated to full bit precision 8 bits per channel,
