Anyways I guess this confirms the only true compatible cards are 3dfx ones.
Very debatable. 😀
A few games that have some rendering issues with GeForce cards (like Incoming, Thief 2, and probably a few others) are not enough to tilt the balance in 3dfx's favor.
I can also list quite a lot of games that look very bad and/or run poorly on earlier Voodoo cards prior to VSA-100 (i.e.: Need for Speed Porsche, MDK2, Expendable). And VSA-100 does not count anyway, because it's much less compatible with earlier titles.
IMO, a GeForce 4 Ti + Voodoo 2 will give you the best of both worlds, if you really want a 'do-it-all' build that is both fast (for games that need it) and very compatible at the same time.
Just playing devils advocate of course 😜 I wouldn't mind seeing 3d compatibility chart centered around theif 2. Thrown in some other cards like savage 2000 and stuff like that to see if anyone else besides 3dfx can render the game properly. Sounds likes a project for collector since most people don't have all the cards.
