    Canopus still on the scenes...

    Man I really miss Canopus.....back in the later Pentium/Pentium MMX days, they had a kicking Voodoo1 card...what was unusual about it was it had 6 megs of RAM, everyone else had only 4.

    They withdrew from the US market a while ago...dunno if you can get them, but I just came across this from a link on Anandtech...

    Check out the specs and cooling on it...

    Brent...if you get one of these for free to test....I'll....I'll....I'll really be jealous! >:-|

    I'll show it to Kyle, maybe he can score us one for review

    i'm pretty sure he can, I remember Canopus, they were GODS at the Voodoo line, I'm pretty sure if they want to be known again they will want some PR from hardware sites......

    FireBird G2 Cooling Unit (Copper)
    AeroDynamic fan (Fluid Bearing)
    The cooling sounds like it's pretty innovative....does any other video card have copper cooling, and a fluid bearing fan?

    it's expensive....almost double the price of other GF3's..but it's cool...Canopus was the bomb....they were really hot when I got my first computer....4 years ago
