3Dfx is a brand many in today’s generation may not be familiar with but to PC gamers from the 90s, it’s the brand that gave us the Voodoo 3D graphics card. So, imagine our surprise when we found out that the Lego brand might just make a Lego version of the legendary card.
The idea for the Lego Voodoo 3D graphics card was submitted by idspispopd (@Bhaal_Spawn), known by some in the Lego community as the individual who also gave the world a Lego version of the Creative Sound Blaster audio card.
For the uninitiated, the Voodoo 3D graphics card shipped out with 4MB of graphics memory (Yes, we know that’s a pitiful amount today. However did we survive) running at a clock speed of 50MHz. Two years later, 3Dfx released its successor, the Voodoo2, and that came with up to 12MB graphics memory, running at a clock speed of 90MHz.
"From the weirdo who brought you the LEGO Sound Blaster…"
My LEGO 3dfx Voodoo card is now live on LEGO Ideas!

Now, the Lego version of the Voodoo 3D graphics card is still floating around in idea limbo; Lego has said that it will consider fabricating the design, but only if the product garners enough votes.
So, if you wish to own a little piece of graphics history in the shape of Lego, then go ahead and cast your vote for the product on the official page.
