OP says that they don't want emulation. nGlide isn't an emulator and there's no graphics degradation. And if OP expects to make defunct company's hardware to somehow magically shit out Win 10 compatible drivers, then that's not going to happen. Not to mention, that unless there's a strict requirement for Glide, DirectX was graphically superior. Somewhere around Riva 128 is was very obvious that Glide and 3dfx were lagging behind and gap wasn't ever properly closed. Once Geforce cards rolled out, 3dfx was already woefully obsolete.

Anyway, if OP still insists on having VooDoo, they can try forcing XP driver inf files. It might function to some extent.
TNT2 was the card that made me ditch 3DFX.

In terms of performance I seem to recall the Voodoo 3 2000 and 3000 sandwiching the TNT2 in OpenGL benchmarks, but the TNT2 supported 32-bit colour and it was pretty clear by then that DirectX was gaining momentum as the dominant API. It didn't hurt that the TNT2 was widely available from a range of brands with competitive pricing, whilst STB were busy making a dog's dinner of the Voodoo 3 launch as 3DFX's monopolistic in-house production partner. That was 3DFX starting to nail their own coffin shut.

The rate at which Nvidia made progress was crazy in 1999 and 2000:
  • March 1999 - TNT2 beats Voodoo 3 to market by a month and has superior DX6 support as well as 32-bit colour.
  • October 1999 - Geforce256 has almost double the performance and DX7 support. Next 3DFX card still months away.
  • April 2000 - Geforce 2 GTS now triple the performance of Voodoo 3.
Finally in June 2000, 3DFX finally had (poor) retail availability of their next gen VSA100 products, but the Geforce2MX was already available and cheaper than a Voodoo4, the Geforce 2 GTS was already available and cheaper than a Voodoo 5. With only one manufacturer of 3DFX cards, and constrained supply, 3DFX had problems with both supply and pricing, but that wasn't what killed 3DFX - It was the performance; 40% worse performance/$...

...and I chopped those results out of an old Anandtech review of the Voodoo4 4500. By this point, the Geforce2 isn't even the fastest DirectX card, that award went to the original Radeon DDR.

nGlide isn't an emulator
It's literally intercepting and translating calls. In most modern lingos, that's an emulator. How well it works is beside the point.

Sometimes it works perfectly fine, but usually it doesn't. Doesn't hurt to try.
He did try. I don't think you can load XPDM on anything newer than 7. You might get away with it if dismissing driver signing at boot, but I kinda even doubt that.

Again, we've kind of covered this.

Benchmark Scores low, but this system has soul not scores
I have the two of the worst 3d accelerator ever made, even the manufacturer is removed 3D label on the cards.
I have two version, a newer one with 2MB ram and relabeled to AT25. And one with 4mb ram with the original AT3D label. The newest driver is for windows 9x so it is not working on windows 7 (when i add the inf it says it is for other windows version) Without drivers i got no acceleration so I cant test its buggy features.
On windows 98Se and pentium3 it is works but i think no one wanted to use it as an 3d accelerator card. See review: https://vintage3d.org/at3d.php
Voodoo Rush uses the same AT3D/2D chip for 2D but i think they disabled the acceleration on Rush cards.
I use these cards in my other systems for voodoo1 because it is an average card for 2D.
Brand is ARISTO.

Ooooooh, I had a Voodoo Rush! I 'upgraded' from an S3 Virge Graphics Acellerator Decellerator.

After about 3 days I sent it back for a refund because it cost an arm and a leg (and was effectively worse than a mcuh cheaper Voodoo1 card thanks to that godawful AT25)

I can't remember exact pricing but IIRC The Voodoo Rush was about £190 and I was waiting for the Banshee to arrive so I found a cheap £45 Rendition card that was about as good as the Rush to carry me the few months until the Banshee was available.
