voodoo2

I purchased a Creative Labs 12 Mb voodoo2 board and noticed on the package that it requires a genuine Pentium, Pentium Pro , or Pentium II processor. I have an AMD K6-2 333. Will the voodoo card work with my processor? Please only reply if you have a similar system because after I open the package I cannot return the video card.

After posting this ques. I went to the Creative Labs web site and they list a Pentium as a requirement. Why? Is the motherboard an issue. I have an FIC 503 Motherboard. Also, do you know how the Creative Labs card stands up to the Diamond Monster II.

The Creative VoodooII 12Mb is reference board design, it's no different from Monster3D II except the brand name.  It's totally nonsense that it will require Intel CPU only as I've setup at least a dozen machines with Creative VoodooII and AMD.  The only possible reason that it will only work for Intel CPU is if Creative's driver checks for CPUID and refuses to install for non-Intel, but that's not the case.  If it will make you feel better, all VoodooII are of the same design reference board and you could use driver from Diamond or 3Dfx if you feel like it.  The only VoodooII with different design is from Canopus and Quantum 3D.
