Well I guess it's based on the Voodoo5 family. It was supposed to be a economical alternative to the V5 5500. But I think I read somewhere it was a bit of an economical failure like the banshee. OEM competition stuff and all.

Hey... has it got the AGP 2X 4X or is it PCI?

Voodoo5 5500 AGP
Voodoo5 5500 PCI DVI x3 (exorcised MAC cards)
Voodoo4 4500 PCI
Voodoo2 1000 PCI x4 (two boxed and factory sealed)

AFAIK the powercolor ek4 needs 3,3v...
like the v5 5500 agp4x...you can put it into a agp4x-system with 1,5v but the card will not have any function or a creeping death...

The Powercolor Voodoo4 AGP cards are mounted on a different PCB assembly to the standard 3dfx STB ones. That card is 3.3v AGP v1.0 compliant like a Voodoo5. Plugging into your universal 0.8/1.5v AGP v3.0 slot will burn out parts of the motherboard. You can only connect such cards to a universal 1.5/3.3v AGP v2.0 slot. This is an unkeyed slot like the one on your board, but supports 3.3v cards correctly.

Please refer to and read this before continuing: http://www.inc_exe.szm.sk/helppage/default_fix.htm#misconceptions

Notice the keying on the card edge connections. It prevents a 1.5v card being plugged into a 3.3v slot and vice versa, but universal slots allow all of these. The problem is that modern universal slots don't support 3.3v cards, though you can still connect them and do the damage.
