I'm just thinking: can we combine more than two (say, 4 or 6) Voodoo 2 cards to achieve some sort of "double-SLI" (or triple, in case of 6) mode?? Is there any third-party drivers to support such configuration?

Well, I heard about Mercury, but could it be done using our "normal" PC? Is there any drive or extra connection I should use?

I just wonder whether there's some fanmade drivers/utilities out there that enable us to put FOUR Voodoo2 at our "normal" PC and have them all work together.

The Mercury is 8 V2 in SLI. But as already said, this requires modifikation on the hardware level, nothing a mere driver can do.

for Quantum 3D, they don't need 8 PCI slots as they have merged V2 SLI in one board and uses one PCI bus (usually two seperate cards), it's called X24
putting 4 X24 together makes mercury..(with many special tweaking in hardware absolutely by Q3D), have i got everything right?

Correct.
And I have the X-24, since I had only one PCI slot free and wanted SLI. Plus, it's slightly faster than regular SLI :)

Mercury contains from 4x Obsidian 200SBi boards (200SBi is not 2-X24!), Mercury AA module, Mercury Riser and Mercury I/O.

this is Obsidian 200SBi:



and this is Obsidian 2 X24 (they are different )
