3dfx Obituary

Gamecenter posted an obituary for 3dfx. It covers the history of the company, from what made it great to what made it fall. I question their timeline on a few issues, but it is a good summary. The good news for 3dfx folks is that NVIDIA announced that they were going to extend over 100 job offers to former 3dfx staff. Thanks VoodooExtreme.

This is another article where Rendition's Verite 1000 and 2000 series chips could have been mentioned more. They were a legitimate player in the 3D field until they fell on their faces with the 3000 series. In the cutthroat world of computing, you are only one product cycle away from extinction.
