Swiped from The TechZone:

Forget the Voodoo 5 and Voodoo 6. Check out this secret photo of the new soon to be release Voodoo 532! The new Voodoo 532 by 3dfx is the ultimate in video card technology. Equipped with 12 voodoo chips and it's own 300 watt power supply, the Voodoo 532 is the first video card to run Quake 3 at over 1000 fps with FSAA on!

Once they mount the fans on that thing it will probably turn your PC into a hovercraft.
Does this thing also come with 532 MB RAM?

Why is the top third of the card distorted when the power supply isn't?

Hi DuRaNgO
What type of connecting interface does this monster have,it's much bigger than an AGP slot.Nevertheless,it is impressive!!

It's not a good parody.

VSA-100 chips must be paired up in powers of two, that means 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, or 32 chips per board.

A 12-chip board isn't possible.

Yeah a 300Watt powersupply connected to the board itself is?

Anyway, I'm gonnna buy it!

Gamespot always got the new stuff, even when they got the ugliest site in the world.

Jim, why is it jig-sawed like that? Wouldn't that nice little Athlon HS you posted the pic of earlier, be capable of cooling all those CPU's at once? http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

the jig-saw edges are so they can attach another 532mb of ram in the future http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Hey,I just noticed that the first two chips (near the metal strip) are overlapping the connector for the power supply!! Apparently,the person who made this picture wasn't being too careful with cutting and pasting!! http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

Reminds me of those desert movies with the heat waves shimmering over the sand dunes. Or of that bump mapping demo with the fire.
