Well i just got a voodoo 5 5500 pci for and it is MUCH better than the v5 5500 agp that I have been using for a while, its faster less buggy and MUCH more stable... does this make sense, i thought that agp cards were supposed to be faster, and besides which my v5 5500 agp was runnin at an 84 mhz bus rate, and i know that it didnt use agp texturing so it's basicly a pci card but wouldnt that make them equal? well i guess that's about it, oh, and the colors look MUCH better on my new voodoo, plus i have dvi out now :) i wish they would have released others like this for pc, poor 3dfx, overall this card is better, im dl'n 3d mark 03and im bout to test this one right now, so i will let u know how that comes out, and if it amazes me i will pop my agp back in and see how they compare, ty :)

1. Voodoo AGP cards are only PCI cards with an AGP connector.

2. Voodoo PCI cards are of a later production date.
AGP is from 1900 to 2900 and PCI from 2900 to 3500 if I'm not mistaking:

the 84Mhz was probably your problem with the bugginess. The cards are only rated for 66Mhz. AGP2X is only 66Mhz X2 (falling edge AND rising edge triggers).

My Voodoo 5 5500 PCI is a revision 2700A1, so that would be the first PCI series.

From my opinion is a Voodoo 5 5500 AGP a little bit quicker than a PCI version, due to the 66 MHz transfer rate instead of 33 MHz. But the difference is 2-3% maxed.

I will test it if I can find some time to do it.
