And another Monster 3D. This time it's an E-revision. Maybe I have too much of these boards, or maybe not. Practically every board is a bit of unique, however. This one has GLT44017-40J4 RAM which was unknown to me. GLT stands for 'Galvantech Inc.'... > Read more

Diamond Monster 3D (PCI)

And yes, another Monster 3D! This time it's a Europe retail model which includes a box and game CD's :). This was 'the' 3D upgrade back then. People didn't install a 3Dfx card. No, they installed a Monster3D card. Not realizing it was a 3Dfx card after all.

Diamond Monster 3D II (PCI)

An 12MB Diamond Monster 3D II; quite a performer back in the old days! If you wanted a game system in 1998 people often talked about the Monster 3D.

The card has two interesting twists compared to normal cards. First there is a resister (seen in first photo) that is probably installed by factory ... > Read more

Diamond Monster Fusion (AGP)

Monster3D, a common name in the 3Dfx world. The Monster3D and Monster3D II were quite popular at the time. This Monster Fusion was less known compared to it's predecessors.

Despite that there was nothing wrong with the board. It features active cooling and has copper integrated in the PCB (near ... > Read more
