    Hi there!

    I was doing some cleaning in one theater and found this AGP card:

    Any ideas what card it is? It's made by STB Systems Inc. So I think it could be Voodoo 3 from 3dfx?

    I know STB used to make TV Tuner cards (I think they were called "Velocity", or the like), but thats about the extent of my knowledge.

    Could be a Riva TNT. I had one that looked quite similar.

    Hey, we have the same mousepad!

    The card I don't think it looks like a Voodoo 3, though it has been many years since I last saw one. But the Voodoo 2 that I used to have was much larger than that.

    IIRC STB also had some Riva128 cards. I guess you don't have an AGP system to let windows detect it.

    That I honestly don't know. I don't have AGP system so I can't make sure... But bet is on Voodoo 3

    I'm glad I could help :)
    By the way, where in the theatre did you find it? I didn't think that theatres were good place for finding old graphic cards...

    No, we don't. I have the S&S not the QcK.

    I don't think XP even supports Voodoo, does it?

    I don't know how it works (or what is it good for :lol:), but it's possible to find XP drivers even for Voodoo 1 (like here).

    They got pile of older PC's that were cannibalized ... And it was just lying around in a pile of other cards, S3 Trio's and some old 14k modems :D
