Ook AVault heeft interview gepost met S3. Uiteraard gaat-ie over het heftige & onverwachte nieuws over de overname van Diamond door S3. Hier heb je alvast twee Q&A'tjes:
AVault: How will this purchase affect the development of future graphics accelerators from Diamond?
Crossley: Obviously, S3 will continue to design graphics accelerators for a wide range of applications. Yet, in the case of business segments we do not design solutions for, we will continue to supply external chip solutions. Diamond's FireGL1 board with IBM's graphics chipset is an example of a product line that will continue to be externally sourced.
AVault: Will your investments lead to faster product implementation at a higher level of quality, or is Diamond already poised at the cutting edge? Specifically, what will this pairing mean to the consumer?
Crossley: Bottom line, this pairing should result in better, more highly integrated hardware and software PC graphics solutions as well as new and innovative products for emerging outlets.
