Quantum3D Obsidian2 90-2440

Quantum3D did not only release consumer hardware but also hardware for coin-op systems or arcade consoles. For example, this Obsidian2 90-2440 can be found in Atari arcade consoles.

The board has 10MB of RAM which is unusual for a Voodoo2 board. Also note there is no pass-through option as the second D-SUB is not attached. As arcade systems do not need 2D graphics they boot up and switch to 3D and run the game immediatly this board does not have a second D-SUB. The RAM configuration of this board is a bit odd. It has a whopping 8MB texture memory but only 2MB frame buffer so only resolutions up to 640x480 are supported.

This board runs perfect in a normal PC. Just install the board and use the latest 3dfx reference driver. After firing up an 3D application/game you have to put the VGA cable into the Quantum3D board and the show will begin.

Also take a look at the pictures and see this board has a rework. A bug probably screwed up the board and instead of throwing away nearly perfect boards, Quantum3D decided to fix them. Well, that's most likely...
