DX9? Come on. These cards are 1998 vintage.

DirectX 5 and 6 games work great on the V2 though.

This PC was WinME/WinXp dualboot and I have used Radeon X850 PE in it. So - Dx9.0b or later.
Plus all Voodoo2 Win9x drivers except 2 versions (3.02.02 and 3.03.00b) have the "too fast CPU" glitch. So - DX6.1 isn't the option for me.

Asus P4P800 SE/Pentium4 3.2E/2 Gb DDR400B,
Radeon HD3850 Agp (Sapphire), Catalyst 14.4 (XpProSp3).
Voodoo2 12 MB SLI, Win2k drivers 1.02.00 (XpProSp3).

Yes, you always do this, run old hardware on a 3 GHz Pentium 4 with lots of Ram and then post that things don't work.

What do you expect?

DX9? Do you want to play Far Cry on a Voodoo 2?

No, I wanted to test nGlide in WinME.
And the card itself works ok even on C2D E8400/Q45 + WinXp. Maybe Q77 is ok too but I not tested this. The only trouble is - glide and opengl only, there is no ddraw or d3d Voodoo2 support in NT 5.x OSs.

You don't have to disable them. In most games you can choose which accelerator you want to use. Voodoo2 works perfectly fine in direct3d. In sli (with a p3 cpu) they will be twice as fast as a savage4....

are you kidding me ?
my S540 plays DeusEx 1280x1024 just fine or UT99.
Neither V2 or V2 SLI can do this 😁
