Gisteren werdt bekend dat 3dfx de levering van de Voodoo5 5500 uit heeft gesteld omdat er problemen waren met het funcioneren van de kaart in sommige configuraties. Daarom heeft 3dfx besloten om ook de kaarten die al bij de distributeurs waren ook terug te roepen:
After careful consideration, 3dfx has made the decision to bring back the Voodoo5 AGP products that have been shipped. 3dfx has a business model that allows us to maintain a limited number of direct customers, while still being able to maximize availability points to the end user. This means that the boards we have shipped were sent to less than a half dozen distributors, who we maintain a very close working relationship with. We are bringing the boards back to determine if those boards exhibit the same problem. We believe that the overwhelming majority of those boards will test out fine. We are taking this step to minimize any consumer returns through our retailers and to ensure that the products we ship will be of the highest quality.
