3dfx indulged in a bit of self-congratulation today, announcing that their Voodoo 5 5500 AGP graphics card has been in the top five of Chart Track's graphics card chart since its release in June, with the company behind five of the top six graphics cards in terms of sales. According to 3dfx, their Voodoo 5 5500 is out-selling its "next generation rivals" by a ratio of 2 : 1, and the high price of the card makes it 3dfx's best-selling graphics card by revenue. Representatives from PC World, Electronics Boutique, and Simply Computers all lined up to congratulate 3dfx in the sycophantic press release. Perhaps more interestingly, 3dfx said that they will be launching more versions of the Voodoo 4 and Voodoo 5 this summer, which presumably means the long overdue arrival of the budget Voodoo 4 4500 and the monstrous four processor Voodoo 5 6000. We should know more soon...
