S3 video card: (neophyte) question about drivers

I have the following video card:

S3 86C375/86C385 Video Bios Ver 1.01.03
Digital PC 5100 S3 ViRGE /GX VGA BIOS Version 1.01 2M SGRAM

The S3 website has only the 1998 driver for this card.

Are there more recent compatible drivers that I can use or is that a physical impossibility? (i.e. like trying to run a Windows Vista program on a Windows 95 OS).

Sorry if this is a stupid question!

If the manufacturer has stopped providing the support for the drivers then it is impossible to run latest graphics application using the same graphic card. You will have to upgrade the video card which supports latest applications.
