Reincarnate 3dfx to Develop New Graphics Chipset?
NVidia better watch its back, the race may not be over yet. The Inquirer is reporting that ex-3dfx employees are working on the release of a new breakthrough graphics product, which will be released under the "3DPower" name brand. The new board is reported to be black with gold components, and packs in swift DDR memory. It is being rumored the chipset will have an official launching on June 10.
The report also states that quite a few respectable manufactures may be offering video cards based on the new chipset from 3DPower.
Rumor has it this new chipset is based heavily on the 3dfx Rampage graphics chipset, which may upset competitor NVidia. NVidia previously bought out the assets of 3dfx and have absorbed them into the company's graphics technology.
Former 3dfx CTO, Scott Sellers, acknowledged the possibility of 3DPower, but denied any personal involvement.
