3Dfx Voodoo2 PCI

A very early Voodoo2! It's made in the 44th week of 1997. Back then a lot of Voodoo Graphics cards (Voodoo1) were still produced and sold.

Interesting facts about this card are it's design and RAM configuration. The SLI connector is pointing outwards instead of upwards. The RAM modules are placed in a different way comparing to a normal Voodoo2 and the back of the card is completely empty like the oddbal, the Powercolor Voodoo2. Since this card uses 12 chips of 512KB each, the card has 6MB EDO. In the early days of 1998 Creative Labs mentioned 6MB and 8MB models but eventually never sold the 6MB version. Only 8MB and 12MB versions were made. Reason? 8MB is required for running 800x600 resolutions; it would be a shame to have a powerful Voodoo2 running at only 640x480.
