Hello! I've this two video cards and are both AGP. I've tested with 3d mark 01 both card on the same pc and i has returned me results for me not normal...

Look this:

Voodoo 5 5500 : 2226 points
Voodoo 3 3000 : 2096 points

It is normal? Why different points are low? Voodoo 5 5500 it is the same of Voodoo 3 3000? :S Or my Voodoo 5 5500 is broked?
I've used for both video cards Amigamerlin 3.0 and 3.1 r 11 as driver...

Help me please ! I can't believe...

yeah,I think the v5 should perform better on your cpu..make sure you are not running in single chip mode.
