The company's flagship product was the Voodoo Graphics card (1996), an add-in card that accelerated 3D graphics in games. The Voodoo
Graphics card and its follow-up, Voodoo 2, quickly became arguably the most
iconic 3D graphics cards of the 1990’s.
In the early 1990’s,
more complex PC video games would demand more powerful computers, forcing PC
gamers to upgrade from 286’s to expensive 386’s and beyond to play the latest
titles. With the appearance of 3D graphics cards, such radical upgrades were no longer as necessary and cards such as the Voodoo quickly became the upgrade of choice for PC
owners wanting to play games such Quake by id Software at their best.
This card was one
of a short series of PC cards I made for fun in 2019 as fun way to pass the time. I've enjoyed making them and they have been a source of some enjoyable nostalgia.
