Great find! I remember the good old 3dfx days. There are some games I just cannot get to run under my GeForce GT 220 the way they ran on my old 3dfx Voodoo3 3000. Ah memories ... damn, what a quick way to feel old.

In SLI, a pair of Voodoo2 boards splits the effort of rendering the 3D scene, allowing performance to be nearly doubled.

Close but not quite.

The VGA cable included with Voodoo2 boards was a pass-thru type. Voodoo2 boards were not stand-alone display adapters, just graphics accelerators. You hooked the Voodoo2 up to your already existing display adapter via the short VGA cable.

The original version of SLI actually connected both cards via a very short cable that looked more like an IDE ATA/33 or Floppy drive cable. Flat ribbon style.
