All you Nvidia fans (and I am one) may be siked and laughing at 3dfx but I do not think this is good! Who's left? ATI and uh maybe Matrox and Kyro and ??? Well ATI is the only real competition for the PC. Nvidia is after the laptop and I'm sure won't let Matrox just steal back the workstation that easily.
Guess we'll have to get used to using Nvidia products. I can live with that! I don't relish paying a weeks salary for a decent videocard though.
I think the technology market in computers is swinging back to processors and away from the videocard market. People have all the gaming power they need if they have a decent geforce or geforce 2. But now apps that require oodles of cpu power (like video ripping) are becoming popular.
This is good, maybe with enough cpu market competition, I can get a cpu that will let me flask a dvd in a few minutes by this time next year! : )
Sorry to see you leave the party 3dfx, but you went downhill after the voodoo2.
