Yes, the FrgMstr really did get his mitts on a Voodoo 5 5500 AGP, and he's posted some preliminary benchmarks from the board. Kyle was very careful not to go too far in drawing conclusions from alpha silicon and alpha drivers. He didn't post comparative GeForce numbers, even.
Judging by the numbers, the V5 5500 looks competitive with the GeForce, but I have to wonder if it will really be able to go toe-to-toe with the NV15.
The guys at Beyond3D have also promised to publish Voodoo 5 benchmarks soon, and their server's getting beaten like a Tyson cellmate tonight. Assuming their server can hold up, their V5 preview should be very interesting, because they really seem to know their stuff when it comes to 3D.
Update: The Beyond3D Voodoo 5 preview is online right here. They didn't publish comparative benchmarks, either; 3dfx must've "leaked" these cards early with some strings attached.
