Oliver let us know that inan interview (German) with deferred Power atCeBIT, Imagination Technologies’David Harold stated that Linux drivers for theirKyro II chipset are in development (are there any current generationchipsets that will be missing drivers in the near future?).

    Well the Voodoo5 5500 AGP is still only half-supported under Linux. The card has two VSA-100 Chips on it, but so far only one is supported. The cause for this problem is lack of support from 3dfx (well they had troubles, yeah, but still). No documentation about how to use the second chip ever gets to the programmers.

    For the price Kyro is the way to go. I wouldn’t recommend geforce MX cards to Linux users anymore if some stable fast Kyro II drivers were released.[br]
    Looking forward to the drivers.

    According to Tom’s Hardware, the Linux versions of the nVidia drivers don’t do page-flipping. This apparantly accounts for the significantly slower nVidia speeds in Linux at the higher resolutions as compared to in Windows. So why doesn’t Linux get this performance feature?
