I'm running a voodoo 5 on winXP and love it. However, I'm wanting to move up to Windows 7 but it tells me it cannot identify the card, and just runs as a generic (Aero and no telling what else is disabled). In searching for drivers, I have not found even any hint of them for my card that will work under Windows 7. I did however find a mention that possibly the Vista drivers may work, but I've not found them either.
Does anyone know if there are drivers out there for the Voodoo 5 that will work under Win7 ?? I really hate to have to dump my card when every thing else is working ok. Any advice will be appreciated.

Hi,

I have make a test with the same PC (KR7A/T-bred@2000/V5500 agp) under win XP (Sfft 1.5 drivers) and Win7 (Sfft 1.5 drivers), and the win7 version is faster and more reliable, even in games (3dmark2001se bench / tomb raider / hitman). So I decided running on Win7 with Powerstrip o/c & FSAA settings.



A screen.
Thank you very much for your nice job, Sfft drivers are very fine.
It works also (in vista compatibilty mode) with V3000 Pci and V4500 agp4x

I don't think it does. Has someone actually tried running his Voodoo 5 5500 AGP/PCI on Windows 7 x64 yet?

the d3d portion of the driver should work,but glide/opengl is a no go,unless someone recompiles them for 64bit (if memory serves).
