Voodoo 4/5 Drivers Updated
7:30 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Last night, 3dfx released version 1.1.2 of their driver package for their Voodoo4 4500 and Voodoo5 5500 3D accelerator cards. This update is a maintenance release, so don't expect any frame rate increases (or decreases). Users are reporting that more screen resolutions and refresh rates are available now for some monitor/system configurations. Also fixed is a bug which caused banners in GameRanger and Sherlock to be displayed at a 45-degree angle. Here is a list of changes in this update from 3dfx' website:

  • 4-bit color lookup tables supported.

  • Exponential fog and exp2 fog now working

  • More resolutions supported, including >85Hz

  • Multiple video streams can now be scaled

  • Numerous bug fixes
  • You can download the drivers from or through the auto-update feature in the 3dfx MacTools control panel.
