Gainward Dragon 3000

A Voodoo2 which is different comparing with the rest. Lot's of companies took the 3dfx reference design and copied it, attached their label on it and sold it. This was done to save costs on designing a new board and the 3dfx design was a good design anyway.

Though some companies decided to take the design in their own hands and so did Gainward with the Dragon 3000. It does not differ much but some chips are located on a different place and capacitors are solid-state caps. See for yourself on the pictures in the sidebar :).

Some of these boards are shipped with green heatsinks. My board was shipped 'nude' and runs fine without the heatsinks.
