We live in a unique time. Those who, was children and adolescents in the 90s, played PC games, grew up, received education and professional skills. These people, driven by nostalgic feelings and a thirst for self-realization, were able to do the seemingly impossible - to reproduce a number of solutions for playing retro projects. A special breakthrough took place in Russia, where, due to the low cost of an hour of work, it became possible to implement such complex developments as the Voodoo 5 6000.
The new card from zx-c64 turned out to be quite successful from the hardware point of view. The relative disadvantages of the new Voodoo 5 6000 include only a heavy cooling system, which, at the same time, has excellent efficiency. As for the rest, even the first revision of the "six thousandth" shows excellent performance results and high image quality. We can say that the Voodoo 5 6000 128 MB from zx-c64 will be able to provide comfortable gaming at 1600x1200 in most games until 1999-2000, while enabling full-screen anti-aliasing at this resolution can severely impact performance or even make the game impossible due to lack of video memory. Enabling full-screen anti-aliasing is only reasonable at relatively high resolutions like 1024x768. One way or another, none of the commercially available products from 3dfx for home use can surpass the Voodoo 5 6000 either in graphics quality or in performance, which makes the new product from zx-c64 an uncompromising solution for fans of old games.

P.S. At the time of this writing, the second version of the accelerator is already available for ordering and purchasing - Special Unified Xcelerator 6000. An ironic and slightly absurd name, isn't it? I already have two different cards of the second revision in my hands. It's only the beginning….
