I still have my old voodoo2 8mb in an old p2 300 system so I could use it for gaming. 3dfx signed their death warrent when they stopped allowing people to make boards for them.

Thx for letting us know Zammy - yep, end of an era :(

lurch: I used to love that logo too.
It has to be said though, as flips pointed out 3Dfx have only themselves to blame. They got greedy and complacent and it cost them too much.

That's a shame. I'll always remember playing Quake for the first time on a Voodoo 1 card - mind-blowing at the time.
I still have a Voodoo 3 2000 AGP in my K6-2 300 system, working fine.
That's a good link Zammy, I'll add it to our downloads section, it's better than the one we have, this one: 3dfx Drivers (http://www.planetfalconfly.de/)
