I stopped reading Penny Arcade years ago, and it seems that was a good call:
For context, Ben Kuchera was one of the first hires at Penny Arcade report.

Ben was the best gaming writer at Ars, it was a pity when he left. It would be amazing if he could come back.

3dfx Voodoo 5 6000 recreated via reverse engineering
Earlier this week a modder and enthusiast called Anthony revealed that he had built his own Voodoo 5 6000 graphics card by purchasing a number of VSA-100 chips, SDRAM modules, and applying a sizable pinch of electrical engineering know-how. The finished full working sample is pictured above.

HotHardware noticed the achievement a few hours ago and reports that Anthony created his Voodoo 5 6000 by reverse engineering an original 3dfx sample (without any harm done to this sample, stresses the modder). He created his own custom PCB and even improved the design by fitting a 4-pin Molex power connector, so an external power brick wouldn't be needed.
