3DFX AT25 + VOODOO RUSH SINGLE BOARD DRIVER
A significant requirement of the OEM business was the ability to consistently produce new products on the six-month product refresh cycle the computer manufacturers required; 3dfx did not have the methodology nor the mindset to focus on this business model. In the end, 3dfx opted to be a retail distribution company manufacturing their own branded products. The Voodoo 3 was hyped as the graphics card that would make 3dfx the undisputed leader, but the actual product was 3Dfx AT25 + Voodoo Rush Single Board expectations.
3dfx - Vogons Wiki
The Voodoo3 sold relatively well, but was disappointing compared to the first two models and 3dfx gave up the market leadership to Nvidia. Voodoo 5 The company's next and as it would turn out, final product was code-named Napalm. Originally, this was just a Voodoo3 modified to support newer technologies and higher clock speeds, with performance estimated to be around the level of the RIVA TNT2.
However, Napalm was delayed, and in the meantime Nvidia brought out their landmark GeForce chip, which shifted even more of the computational work from 3Dfx AT25 + Voodoo Rush Single Board CPU to the graphics chip. Napalm would have been unable to compete with the GeForce, so it was redesigned to support multiple chip configurations, like the Voodoo2 had. However, by the time the VSA based cards made it to the market, the GeForce 2 and ATI Radeon cards had arrived and were offering higher performance for the same price. The only real advantage the Voodoo 5 had over the GeForce 2 GTS or Radeon was its superior spatial anti-aliasing implementation, and the fact that, relative to its peers, it didn't suffer such a large performance hit when anti-aliasing was enabled.
The only other member of the Voodoo 5 line, the Voodoo 4was as much of a disaster as Voodoo Rush, because it had performance well short of its value-oriented peers combined with a late launch. Also, the Mac versions of the Voodoo 4 and 5 had an Achilles' heel in that they did not support hardware-based MPEG2 decode acceleration, which hindered the playback of DVDs on a Mac equipped with a Voodoo graphics card. What else is going on? First, some rumors and speculations: Various rumors of incompatibilities were floating around, I trust none of them. Support for 3D rendering in window requires more clipping and separate addressing 3Dfx AT25 + Voodoo Rush Single Board different buffers.
Rush supports configurable chroma range keys and stereo 3d rendering. Now lets get real.
Tiling shared buffer has some overhead. I can imagine additional bandwidth and capacity constrains. SST packs pixel quads of color or depth onto separately mapped pages while SST-1 packs pairs of color and depth within a memory word.
These differences result in lower access efficiency. Card with the same memory amount and bus should be a good comparison. Blows are being traded, but after averaging this Rage Pro is in relative numbers only hair slower than Voodoo Graphics.
Differences in minimal fps mimic average frame rate. The game also had Direct3D and OpenGL renderers, but Direct3D was well in its infancy 3Dfx AT25 + Voodoo Rush Single Board in the day and even the OpenGL renderer wasn't their best effort, therefore players with competitor cards had to wait for Epic's patches to improve the graphics, but in the end it would take fanmade patches to provide competitive renderers.
This was again due to 3dfx being the dominant 3D solution at this time, and also a commonly known brand with PC gamers. If software does not straightforwardly access either glide. Since Glide was a proprietary interface, there were 3rd party efforts from early on to bring it to all 3D cards.

Glide wrappers are at a level where they can properly emulate how those games 3Dfx AT25 + Voodoo Rush Single Board look on a real Voodoo card and can be considered a viable alternative to the real cards. A problem with them is that games written for Win9x are not necessarily compatible with modern operating systems, so only a at best period-correct Win9x system can be guaranteed to play all Glide games properly.
