Graphic Card History

hello, i had just dug up an old old old computer magazine and i suddently came across the best vid card in the day -- voodoo 3 and then i though, what happended with the voodoo series? when i was playing transport tycoon delux i had heard about them (at about the age of 6, the memeory is kinda fuzzy) so i though i'd come here and ask. Anyone know what happended to them?

    I dont' believe such a site exists, so.......

    YOU now have your homework assignement for the First Term! :tongue:

    I'd almost be willing to do it for Matrox, but it look like alot of work, and if I'm going to go through all that effort to make a site, I think it really needs to be an income generating Pr0n site. :evil: :lol: :evil:
