NVIDIA Riva 128
3DFX Voodoo, NVIDIA Riva 128 or Matrox Mystique: all these graphics cards were the precursors of modern graphics cards over a decade ago. It’s cool to see again these cards. I personally had a 3DFX Voodoo 2 (with 2 graphics processors) and a Matrox Mystique. I began OpenGL programming on a NVIDIA TNT and it was one of the first NVIDIA cards with a VGA cooler (I’ll try to post some images as soon as I find it).
