Thanks Mradu14, It took just ten minutes to organize data from my screenshots on a matrix.
I like your work with the drivers and the games too :)
I didn't know UT 2003 and 2004 could run on our 3dfx, I would try that !

So disabling triple buffering adds about 100 to the score, which is about what I expected. The DDI version number set < 9 should change the image that is rendered not the performance. The change is in the Car Chase high detail test when going round the first bend. When DD = 9 the data should be rendered correctly.
You need to change the DDI version number to 8 not 7 to see a difference DDI = 9 and DDI = 7 give the same result DDI = 8 gives a different result.

@m14radu :

With Beta Koolsmoky and Sfft 1.7 drivers :

Perciom + agp2pci (33 or 66 mhz) + V5500 agp :

In 3dmark2001se there is black screen at startup.

Pericom and agp2pci adaptors are not compatible.

nb : do you look my new video on this link :
