Has anyone benchmarked the difference between a Voodoo 1 and a Voodoo 2 on a fast 486,e.g. Cx5x86-120+ or Am5x86-160? Which reference driver versions did you use? I was thinking of running a quick comparison on my Cx5x86-133 system which normally sports a Voodoo 2.
There were some general posts on Voodoo1 vs. Voodoo2, however they were targeting faster systems. For example these threads: 3dfx Voodoo vs. Voodoo 2 - This might help you make a choice! and 3DFX Voodoo2 vs Voodoo1 in Lower-End Pentiums - A Measure of Smoothness?
EDIT: I have finished this comparison and am enclosing this chart. As an average over all the games tested, the Voodoo2 had a 13% improvement over the Voodoo1 when Vsync was enabled, or a 11% improvement over the Voodoo1 when Vsync was disabled.
There are more charts and discussion on page 2 of this thread, Re: Voodoo 1 vs. Voodoo 2 on a 486
EDIT: CPU comparison charts for each game can be found on page 4 of this thread, Re: Voodoo 1 vs. Voodoo 2 on a 486
