    3Dfx is still basing everything on V2. V3 is a souped up V2. This was a PCI part so you'll get a PCI spec interface. They didn't have time (what with TNT out now and TNT2 on the horizon) to R and D an adequate successor to V2. Too bad, I was really looking forward to seeing 3Dfx's new technology. At this rate, they'll never catch up to NVidia. Again too bad, cause VooDoo 1 and 2 were incredible cards. I hope V4 can pull them out of this rut.
