3dfx opened the annual Comdex show in Las Vegas by rolling out the two newest members of the Voodoo family. Voodoo 4 and its larger brother the Voodoo 5 will both be powered by 3dfx's VSA-100 chipset, previously known as 'Napalm'. The 'VSA' in the new name refers to Voodoo Scalable Architecture, a feature that allows multiple processors to share the rendering workload. When 3dfx ships the new Voodoos in March of 2000, the difference will be in the number of VSA-100 at work; Voodoo 4 will feature a single chip and be priced at around $180 while the Voodoo 5 will sport four chips and command a $600 price. 3dfx partner Quantum 3D will be utilizing the same technology under the Alchemy name, offering up to 32 VSA-100 chips on a single board.
