Video corruption. Games from Rage exhibit this (Expendable, for example). In some cases, the card may not run at all above 133mhz bus. 100mhz is the safest max FSB. I think even running the Voodoo 1 on a CPU over 400-450mhz will cause these problems.

Depending on the individual card issues arise much earlier. I have one that does not work with FSB speeds of more than 66MHz and crashes when the CPU speed is above ~333MHz.

Hmm… I wonder if my Canopus Pure3D 6MB has this issue. I will try it on a PII 233 and see how it goes. Thanks for the tip!

The card with the issues is an early Guillemot MaxiGamer 3D. I guess either the early Voodoo Graphics chips or the early PCB are at fault. Just speculation though. 😅

I have here also a P1 200 MMX machine which would suit perfect the V1 but I dont know switching always the systems under my desk, than I would have 3 machines 😁. Beside, if I decide to use the P1 machine, it has a 3d rage pro onboard. is it a good card for 2D/3D (except Glide) gaming? Have here also a S3 trio 64V+ card.

The Rage 3D isn’t a great DOS card, but the Trio is. However, with the Rage Pro 3D, you can play the original Tomb Raider in Windows without DOS and the MechWarrior 2 ATI version, among a few other games. There’s a thread here about this:

I am thinking about now to start this Project, because i just analyzed and all games i need to have win 98 are until the year 98. All other games i can play well on my main machine with good compability, so due to place issues i am thinking to ditch the P4 because there is kind of no necessary for that and stick to the P1. As i remember i startet with a P1 100 And since than I was always using ATI cards. What would be the best suit for the p1 200. I mean it should also have a good 2D performance and have the Direct 3d compatibility. i think from that Time a riva TNT 1 or 2 would be a good choice or? it must be a pci card. the board has no AGP

maybe i open up a ne topic for that:D

The V1 is still to come than.

Take a look at this exhaustive benchmarking work from The Serpent Rider:
