3dfx uncorks latest Voodoo 3 drivers

Customise your card to your heart's content

3dfx today released updated drivers -- or, as we call them, bug-fixes -- for its Voodoo 3 line of graphics cards. According to the 3D graphics specialist, the new drivers and associated tweaking utilities will offer gamers better visuals without any performance hit. The drivers' enhancements focus on allowing users to best balance performance and visual quality according to their own preferences. Accessed through the Voodoo 3 Properties utility, users can adjust the card's alpha-blending functionality and its overall video display quality. In each case, Voodoo 3 owners can set the card to determine the best graphics processing routine, or they can select one of the pre-set options. "Because issues such as image quality are so highly subjective, we added a new level of customisation that allows users to easily choose the settings they like best," said 3dfx executive VP and CTO Scott Sellers. ® The new drives are available from 3dfx's Web site
