Does it have something to do with the Athlon XP? What if we put Voodoo2 in Pentium IV?

I will suggest AthlonXP/64 series than Intel P4 for voodoo 2
someone had done some test to show this..
also i use P4 1.6GHz and V2 SLI to play CS-CZ, in 1024X768, there is still FPS drops..

No way a 3DFX collector...just a 3DFX die Hard Player~~

let the VooDoo Roars!!

P4 Extreme Edition 3.4GHz
Asus P5AD2 Deluxe i925x
2GB DDR2 667 DDRRAM
Voodoo 5 5500PCI

..after performing various tests,it seems like voodoo2/3 reaches its maximum performance limits with a CPU around 1000-1500MHz.from that point,it doesnt matter how fast the CPU is,the FPS will remain the same.(for example-MOHAA.there is no FPS change with an 1GHz and an 3GHz CPU.same goes for Wolf ET..)

Well, when you overclock it to 100mhz, you are getting alle the benifts, faster memory, and a increased fillrate. Unfortunately the V2's memory isn't a great overclocker. BTW how do you get a V2 able to work with Freedom Fighters with 3dAnylyser?

..freedom fighters use IOI's glacier engine,that means the hitman2 fix works with no problems.lemme quote it for ya (just loove quoting myself):
quote:
Use Notepad to edit freedom.ini,change the line DrawDll Renderd3d.dll to DrawDll Renderopengl.dll and add following line:
ColorDepth 16
Save changes and exit Notepad.Download the newest MesaFX,and put the opengl32.dll file and the correct glide3x.dll file to your Freedom Fighters folder.Create a *.txt file (run.txt for example) in the same folder,and put in following:
set MESA_FX_MAXLOD=10
Freedom.Exe
Save changes and exit notepad,rename the *.txt file to run.bat,and launch the game via run.bat

make sure you use mesafx6.1.0.9 or newer,older versions lack a very important fix
