I got a Voodoo 3 2000 PCI that works great on my
8500/120 upgraded to a G3/300, but in linux
the video with that card is extremely slow.
Is there any way to port the 3dfx stuff in XFree86?
Any other suggestions?
Awhile ago I was trying to find out if FreeBSD would work with
3dfx cards, but I couldn't find any clear cut answers, some clues, but
nothing solid. Maybe I just missed it, anyway... for the record:
I have a 2.2.8 installed and running just fine with a Creative Labs
Voodoo2 PCI card. This card is 3D only -- NOT a Banshee. My existing 2D
card is an ATI AGP card.
FreeBSD works fine (console and X). So does Win98 (and yes, it's *only*
for games :)
What I gleaned was this:
- 3dfx Banshee cards will not work since FreeBSD doesn't support that
chipset (because the specs haven't been released). (as of 1/4/99)
- If you have a setup like mine, and you're not doing 3D stuff, then the
3D card just passes the info right on to the monitor without doing
Keywords that I searched for, for everyone else: voodoo, banshee, monster,
creative labs, diamond, 3dfx, glide
10. 3DFX Card?
