I tried an ATI Xpert@Play (mach64) on VIA VP3 and VIA MVP3 based motherboards
with AMD K6 CPUs. I had constant screen glitches with all combinations - not
just on Linux but on Win95 too. Win95 also locked up frequently in many video
games of a wide range of different types.
The latest drivers for Win95 did nothing to alleviate the situation.
As I discovered only too late, the fine print in the ATI documentation states
that their cards are only supported for use with Intel CPUs and Intel
motherboard chipsets. Draw your own conclusions...
