Thumbs up 3DFX is a phoenix

I just saw on a site that 3DFx may be back in business, guys, i'm not kidding! No asking for url it will be everywhere on monday...

If you want really to know search for some infos on Computex 2001!

I'm gonna sleep now, just wanted to be the first to speak about it

Ok if they were back in bussiness, how do you figure thier gonna use the same technology, since Nvidia owns the assets?
So they have new technology? new hardware?

easyrider> huh triala aren't my domain but 3Dfx may have been bought buy Nvidia but if 3Dfx guys shared before some stuff with another company, it would be before and not after Nvidia's deal

geez, you guys are so delusional.... give it up! it's dead! IT IS FREAKIN DEAD! DEAD do you understand what dead means?

dead:
adj. dead·er, dead·est
Having lost life; no longer alive.
Marked for certain death; doomed: was marked as a dead man by the assassin.

Having the physical appearance of death: a dead pallor.
Lacking feeling or sensitivity; numb or unresponsive: Passersby were dead to our pleas for help.
Weary and worn-out; exhausted.

Not having the capacity to live; inanimate or inert.
Not having the capacity to produce or sustain life; barren: dead soil.

No longer in existence, use, or operation.
No longer having significance or relevance.
Physically inactive; dormant: a dead volcano.

Not commercially productive; idle: dead capital.
Not circulating or running; stagnant: dead water; dead air.

Devoid of human or vehicular activity; quiet: a dead town.
Lacking all animation, excitement, or activity; dull: The party being dead, we left early.

3dfx is dead 3dfx is dead 3dfx is dead 3dfx is dead 3dfx is dead

why did you not go to www.3dpower.com? if they were a new 3dfx they would not be selling geforce cards!!!!!! there is no "maybe they are just doing it to make money" YOU DO NOT SELL YOUR COMPETITORS CARDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DUH!

all the engineers from 3dfx went to nvidia except a small few which are working somewhere else, NOT STARTING A NEW 3DFX!!!!!!!!

hehehe nice reply It's why i said "phoenix"

But what is making you live ? hope
We can only hope for such thing arrive, it's totally free, and what would you do if it was true?
For me if it's totally wrong, i won't cry just admit completely it was a hoax

[edit] huh i checked earlier the site and saw like you what it's selling, i wanted to see the staff but i hadn't be able to find it on the site. And sell concurrents products before selling yours isn't impossible, it may help to survive, it's clever you can minimize a launch failure.
