My first PC had a Voodoo Banshee, and AMD K62 cpu

Used to play the crap out of Jedi Knight, Quake 1 and 2, Kingpin Life of Crime, Unreal Tournament, ect.

Good times.

The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs

Actually IIRC with some cards you could do SLI/CrossFire even if one of them was AGP. It wasn't common, and it didn't show up until later in the game IIRC, but it was there.


Maybe, but the Voodoo 2 cards can't be SLI'd if one if AGP. Both had to be PCI, and both need to be the exact same card.

I'm very skeptical you're remembering correctly.

I remember the voodoo banshee was the reason why I couldn't play BF1942...man did I rage hard at the computer for failing to load the level every ****ing time and not understanding why until the tech guy told me that my card was too ****. I then upgraded to a GeForce 4 and WOW EVERYTHING SO PRETTY!


Yeah, the game requires 32MB of VRAM and IIRC the Banshee had 16MB. I don't think you would have been very happy with performance had it run anyway as by that time (2002), games were starting to take advantage of hardware transform and lighting.

Had a TNT2 card. Pretty amazing that it ran Morrowind on high with my Duron 700.

It's entirely possible. I've picked up a lot of odd "facts" over the years that I can in no way, shape, or form recall even a hint of where I first heard/read the information.

In this situation the AGP/PCI "CrossFire" I'm rather vaguely recalling was something of a gimmick, rarely used and done before PCIe CrossFire/SLI became popular, or possibly even before it became available as I want to say this is something I picked up on in the late 90s/early 2000s before PCIe's 2004 release. I say it was gimmicky because some aspects of game performance were limited by the PCI card thereby, in some respects, holding the AGP card back.
