none of them

i have one that does the same thing that is faster and better.
this poll and thread is useless
the 3dfx cards all used the glide engine so if you were to try and play games designed for them you can just emulate glide in opengl or direct 3d engines

Chips & Technologies 65550 PCI 2MB videocard that's in my old Pentium 1 laptop.

The Voodoo 2 was a beast.

I remember asking my dad for the 8MB version when it dropped in price after the 12MB version was released.

The 12MB Voodoo 2 was literally state of the art, the 7950GX2 of its day.

I was quite convinced that my dad wouldn't get me a new graphics card, as even the 8MB version was expensive.

However, on my birthday I opened up the wrapping to find a new, retail boxed 12MB voodoo 2... it was even the 'blackmagic' custom version with black PCB.

I was like OMG... to this day I'm still convinced it 'fell off the back of a lorry'.

Anyway, for that reason the Voodoo2 will always be the most 1337 card.

Intel Extreme Graphics, because they're Extreme and amazing, with like you know, SM 4.0, HDR, etc. They're amazing.

FUCK yo' Rage.

Out of the choices, I'd have to say the GeForce2. I still have one thats chugging away at pretty much everything thrown at it. It plays games such as Warcraft 3, Diablo, etc. just fine still. Can't complain about it at all and I've been impressed by the long life of the card.

I got to go with the voodoo 3, you could install it in any system and have no problems at all. I tried the rage first but had to return it because the computer wouldn't boot at all and then got the voodoo 3. It was a beast, never found a game it wouldn't run and will even run some lower end newer games. Too bad we don't have them competing anymore. They were always ahead of their time.

Dudes, wut-cha 'all sayin'? There simply isn't (and never will be) a video card quite like Voodoo 5. I still have it in one of my PCs at home and marvel at it from time to time...

The first to have 64 Mb of memory
The first card capable of SLI - Kudos to 3DFX for inventing it. (YES - like 11 years ago!)
The first to have 2 GPUs each with its own heatsink/fan so that's 4 GPUs and 128 Mb of memory for ya in SLI !!! Note that 90% of PCs back then had 64 Mb of RAM or less.
and so on and so forth...


Yeah, I paid close to $600 for it back in the day, but this card was so good, so powerful, so overclockable that it allowed me to skip I don't know how many generations of video cards because the next card I bought was an ASUS GeForce 3 ti500 (don't recall the exact model name of this ti500 but it was universally acclaimed as absolutely the best card at that time with VIVO and a thousand other things like 3D shutter glasses included. Boy did I love to play Dungeon Siege in 3D back then.. oh my...)
