Are you guys thinking in release a driver set for the upcoming Windows Vista Operating System in both 32 and 64 bits?

Good question, PanoramixDruida.
I'm writing about all 3dfx products and not only about Voodoo2.

It's much soon to reply you: at this time I can exclude Windows Aero support. Maybe, maybe it's possible getting compatibility with lower Vista editions (32 or 64 bit layout is not a fundamental aspect) but this requires to start a new project and, of course, a very hard work.

Imho it's more useful to continue develops for XP (32/64 bit) environments but talking about 3dfx...

Bye

In Theory a leagcy XP driver will work under Vista in 32 bit only, but with no new features. MS will not allow the installation of an unsigned 64 bit driver under Vista. I do not believe that any of the Voodoo drivers for XP have been tested under Vista yet.

Would it be possible to enable SLI in vista? Or is it as impossible as it is with XP?
