Voodoo 3 - 3000 - PCI - Compatibility - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

    Default Voodoo 3 - 3000 - PCI - Compatibility

    I have been using the s3 3D virge DX/2 4MB video card. Its not a 3D card at all Just 2D, despite the name.

    It has served me fine....never have ever had a need for anything more..or requreied more from it.

    I wanted to get a 3D card, These days 2D/3D cards are combined into 1 card. So it will 'have' to go. I will replace it with the Voodoo 3 3000 PCI 16MB.

    Using Windows 2000 default drivers specific for my old card, adobe gamma has a problem that when you adjust the gamma, there is no onscreen change, only a chnage is seen in 256 colour mode. I even modified accelation. Since the cards drivers from manuafacturer are last updated 1998, and WIndows 2000's 2000 there was nothing I could do driver wise.

    Can people give me there experiences/ideas of how the Vooodoo 3 will be at 2D and also with photoshop. Do you know if it will/will not have the gamme problem that I (and others, mayeb diffrent card) have had ?.

    My system is old. PCI bus only...so I have no choice than old hardware.

    Does windows 2000 not have it's drivers for it ?, id expect it too.

    Does the card not exhibit the adobe Gamma problem I mentiond ?.

    Same drivers for PCI/AGP.

    Does windows 2000 not have it's drivers...




    Same era as 2000, and when I ran the 2000 is-your-computer-ready test, it said it was fine.

    Does the card not exhibit the adobe Gamma problem I mentiond ?.




    I know nothing about running games. The only problems I've seen are with Star Office and OpenOffice.org <http://www.openoffice.org>, where the 3D shape tools draw garbage all over the screen, and the 3D screen savers (3D Maze) randomly blue-screen. MS DirectX Diag seems okay.

    Im am not refering to games, adobe gamma is a utility that installs with photoshop that letts you alter the display.

    That was answered in the first post:

    It works fine with just about everything, including Photoshop, InDesign
    and Illustrator.
