I'd love one just to see how it runs stuff...
lol. How old is that? XD!
Quantum3D also made consumer cards like the X-24 which was two 12MB Voodoo II's on one card,
They benched on a pretty hot system for the day. P2, 440BX, 128MB, SCSI CD-ROM and HD, Matrox for 2D and Voodoo for 3D.
God damn it stop posting pr0n!
This is my favorite part:
I could post some pics of my 4P Pentium Pro board
(Unfortunately I only have three CPUs in it)
For the people that think the 3870x2 was ATI's first dual gpu single card, long time ago a company named "Evans & sutherland" made The long lost simFUSION 6000q which used four radeon 9700 cores [consisting of two dual gpu card]
I can has?
Post pics! This should be renamed "The awesome old hardware thread".
I should get some pics of my friend's 286 box, that looks cool.
@ Warup89: is that PCI AND AGP?
if you look at the first pic, it looks like a combination of both
also if you wanna check out more "monstor cards", check out this old Forum thread
CAE - Tropos (4x Radeon 8500)
So much for low profile...
Nice pictures, this is my favorite:
Tagged like it's evidence
This thread is even more awesome than my attachment is. I want to see/know what the largest amount of gpu's on a single card is/was.
I think these are my favorites so far that I've seen (both from the link warup89 posted):
Voodoo 1 - Obsidian 100 SB 4440
Voodoo 2 - Obsidian 200 SBi
I wonder if it's stronger than a radeon 9250? XD
If you wonder whats the maximum this gen of card could handle [well the voodoo 2 anyways...] here are some Doom3 screenies.
talk about low graphics...
wow, that's one powerful card
LOL i finally found this!....i believe this is the fastest biggest mofo'ing card ever made
I need to clean those chips, they're starting to mold!
Not pictured is the PCI/ISA daughter board which allowed for 20 devices (or 19 or something like that).
They all came out of this bad boy,
That's pretty sad. It is stronger than a 9250 after all...
Too bad it's only a shoop, that would be the single most awesome card in existence. I would build a new case cardboard box just to use it
DO WANT [the case that is]
Check this out:
still available to purchase!
If only I could afford to spend money on something random like that just to have
Ok I had to set up a build
lol Sorry to dig up such an old thread, but I found it funny that I not only own 2 of those in the first quote (AAlchemy 8164), but I owned one of those Obsidian 100SB (mine had the dual Shade add-ons) and own a sibling to that 200SBi. The one I have is a 200SB, which is just a Obsidian X-24 (dual V2 as well) that is capable of multi-card config The difference between the SB and SBi is really just the configuration: SB is a standard length V2 with a second V2 daughter board, SBi is dual V2 in one long card. The 100SB (which there was an SBi I believe) is a dual V1 solution, which Q3D was the only company to offer Voodoo1 in a dual configuration, as the cards (chips actually did) didn't natively support SLI, like the Voodoo2 did.
Heres some old pics from my 100SB next to a GeForce SDR

One showing it's extra "Shade" modules removed.

Cute thing about those 100, 200 and X-24 cards is their SIMM memory, they are 100mhz and 133mhz!
Bad thing about those AAlchemys (AA5 as they're called) is they required an assload of additional power :\ Not just that, but they required a unique voltage of 2.7/2.9v which I'm sure you are aware that our ATX PSUs don't offer :S So for those of us who've collected em, we've had to use methods ranging from industrial adjustable voltage power supplies, modding ATX and using DC-DC Buck converter, tis all worth it though for a card with twice the everything of a Voodoo5-6000!
This is a bad pic, but I was lucky enough to get one with the "Sensor Post Processor" that had twin DVI ports. All I knew about it until this month, was it did basically "Shader" type effects for the simulator (grainy realistic night vision for instance), but didn't know anything else. Plugged it into my PC and nabbed the Device IDs off it, it's a souped up V3! So really Q3D had the first Physics and Shader card, and almost qualifying as a GPGPU since it was a V3 chip Needless to say, Win7 didn't know wtf it was and had no drivers heh So I didn't get to test it's DVI ability.
I do have a pic of the SPP + 2 AA5s mocked up in this DFI LP UT NF4 board, but I think this post is long enough lol But to answer the question for a "single card", I believe the AA5s take the crown having 8 GPUs.
Wow everyone is feeling nostalgic today(username thread, old farts thread, this thread).
Still a good laugh at all the old hardware.
5870 dosent shake a stick compared to that thing. I guess im awesome cause my current pc is still running a Voodoo 2?
I feel nostalgic every time I turn on my computer :\ I need an upgrade so badly... why did I have to see that RD890 was coming out soon! Was about to order a 790GX board that day too lol
