Mac Voodoo5 5500 SKU Release
1:14 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

3dfx has added the Mac Voodoo 5 5500 PCI to their official web site, announcing the card should be available towards the end of July. This is great news for Mac gaming enthusiasts that can't wait to get their hands on this powerful 3D accelerator with the somewhat hefty price.

They note the card will have 64MB of memory, 667 Megapixels per second fill rate, DVI outputs for flat-panel displays, as well as QuickTime, Glide, Rave and OpenGL support. There is no mention of DVD support at this time, though 3dfx assured us at E3 that they definitely have plans in this area.

3dfx has also assembled a list of Frequently Asked Questions specifically for their Mac cards. Here's an example:

Have you been speaking with Apple about getting 3dfx boards in every Mac?

During the normal course of day-to-day operations we communicate with Apple pretty consistently. Unfortunately we can't comment on the nature or content of our discussions. But, we believe, as with other platforms, that Mac end-user's have a big part to play in the definition of the standard Mac.

Check out the pages for more 3D excitement. We're betting the actual cards will start shipping around Macworld New York, and we'll be there to let you in on all the details.
