Oho ! 4000 wall ? That's impressive !
God work !

If a v5 5500 can achieve 4700 points...then a v5 6000 should get the double of performance...so that the 10.000 wall should be possible ! :)

Follow your dreams !

hmm interesting however you are still limited to the 33Mhz PCI Bus, as most 5500 PCI users know these cards also support 66Mhz Bus 32Bit in any PCI-X or PCI64Bit slots :)

I wonder if there are PCI-X to PCI-E convertors, then you could even get amuch higher score, due to the faster bus which will be 66Mhz instead of 33Mhz..

@mradu : I did'nt overclock on win7, just push the Pci-E to 120 mhz. As I said Powerstrip works on Win7 and allows slight overclock, but it is shareware not freeware and I am not sure it can overclock the 2 vsa-100 of a V5 5500.
As I am not experienced as some 3dfx power users here, I would ask the same question than you : "Did any power-user here find a way to overclock the 2 vsa-100 of a V5 5500 PCI on win7 ?"
@Obiwan : I pushed succesfully the Pci-Express frequency to 122 mhz on my mobo (both on XP and Win7), resulting in a 40 mhz V5 5500 Pci frequency, but I stopped there because I was not sure my mobo would like more than a 22% boost on Pci-express !
I like 'living 3dfx cards', and sometimes I must admit I overclocked these oldies to a reasonable limit, but I am not the kind of guy who will destroy his mobo and his Voodoo5 to get 100 points more running a benchmark !
In addition, I read that only the V5 5500 PCI 'MAC version' would run @66mhz. So my question would be "Did any power-user here had pushed a V5 5500 PCI 'PC Version' to 66mhz ? "
I will break safely the 4000 points wall with great cache, ram and Pci-Express controllers directly included in the CPU like a Sandy bridge machine.

Edit : superbs V5 6000 pictures from Trevormacro on the hardware french topic !

Any 3dfx PCI 2.1+ card can run @ 33Mhz & 66Mhz bus ;) this includes all Voodoo3 4 and 5 PCI based cards, not sure about the older PCI cards though.

I agreed with Obi Wan, the card should run without a problem on 66MHz.
anyway..take care of your card :) a living 3dfx card is better than a dead one !

according to specificatins, the bridge PEX8112 is able to work at 33 and 66Mhz.
So, that the only problem is to find out how to set this speed.
Are there some adjustable settings possibility on the riser card ?
Over 66Mhz, the chalange will start

@voodoo5k6: did you try the combination of voodoo5 agp + agp2pci + pci to pci-e ?

are they working together ?
if not, what is the problem ?

Follow your dreams !

It could be that he could not run at 66Mhz bus, because the PCI-E to PCI convertor does not support the 66Mhz Bus , which the AGP2PCI Convertor does support, this might also explain his slower 33Mhz bus limit, which he was able to OC to 40Mhz, but still it did result a lower score than I have seen with a 5500 PCI in a PCI-X 64 Bit Slot @ 32Bit mode with 66Mhz Bus.

Although osckhar did an interesting test with this, dunno where that thread was though, since it was quite some time ago heh.

Obiwan, Does the V5500 can indicate it runs @66 mhz to the Pci-E bridge
by putting some tape on pin 49 for example ?
