3DFX to Unveil V5 6500 Video Card
San Jose, CA - Hot on the heels of the V5 5500 recall, 3DFX has announced the production of a v5 6500 line of video cards.
"We've touted the miracles of gaming technology that accompanied the release of our T-buffer enabled cards, and the V5 6500 is taking all of this one step further," remarked company spokesperson Brian Burke. "Heck, this is at least 10 steps further."
While no hard details were released about this card, reporters were given the following facts:
The V5 6500 will not settle for "movie-like" effects, but it will rather make movies while you use it. Expect to see new and exciting films produced every time you play Unreal Tournament!
"300x anti-aliasing" will be accomplished by shipping every card with a big roll of industrial Saran Wrap, which should be wound over your monitor until everything is just a huge blurry mess.
The card will ship with 1 gig of ram, expandable to 2 gigs via SLI connection. Be warned though, the cable which connects the two cards will be big enough to fit a child into.
V5 6500 card will require an additional outside power source, since the card requires 2000 watts of electricity.
In Q3A benchmarks, it will outperform the GeForce 2 by at least 19 FPS.
Little else is known of the card, but we were able to "borrow" a demo unit and snap a picture before 3DFX officials confiscated the card and our camera. Look for more information in the future.
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
