GRAPHICS ACCELERATORS DEFINITION (continued): …  original version of Voodoo was 2-D/3-D; subsequent versions are 3-D. Voodoo 3 and later versions are complete replacements for the computer's video card. Earlier cards are add-ons that don't replace the video card, but work in conjunction with it. A cable from the computer's video adapter connects to the Voodoo card and then to the monitor, blocking the signal of the original adapter when 3-D acceleration is called for, but allowing the system card to function otherwise.Voodoo is considered to be particularly helpful for playing games on older and slower computers, allowing the graphics display …
