Some back story:
Last year I picked up a used "Voodoo5 5500" on eBay. I'd never owned a Voodoo card before, so I figured I'd see what the best had to offer. I put the card in a P3 system, played a few games, and didn't think much about it until earlier this year. I wanted to use it for an upcoming playthrough for my YouTube channel, but my P3 system had some issues so I very recently built an Athlon XP Win98 system and put the card in that.
However, during the build I noticed the card reported as a "Voodoo5 5000" on the startup BIOS screen. Since I'm not the original owner and have nothing to compare it to, I don't know if someone flashed a weird BIOS to the card or if this is totally normal factory default behavior. I also noticed that the card has a universal AGP connector, which exists for the 5500 model as I understand it, though it's not as common as the 2X connector.
Since I'm in no way an expert on anything Voodoo related, I took a few pictures and direct screen captures in the hope that someone might be able to help me figure out if the card is actually a 5000, just a 5500, or something else. The video output is a little noisy, which you may be able to notice in the 3DFX Info image. I'm using the latest non beta reference driver downloaded from Phil's site.
The reason I'm questioning what I'm seeing is because the 5000 model was never released for sale as far as I know.
