The Spectre 2000 was a performance-segment graphics card by 3dfx, that was never released. Built on the 180 nm process, and based on the Rampage graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 8.0. Since Spectre 2000 does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The Rampage graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 131 mm² and 30 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 1 vertex shader 4 texture mapping units, and 4 ROPs, . Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). 3dfx has paired 64 MB DDR memory with the Spectre 2000, which are connected using a 128-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 200 MHz, memory is running at 200 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the 3dfx Spectre 2000 does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 30 W maximum. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. Spectre 2000 is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 4x interface. Its price at launch was 299 US Dollars.
