Bij 3D Wars staat een artikel over de strijd tussen 3dfx en nVidia. Niet alleen over de V3 en TNT2, maar ook over hoe het begonnen was en wat we nog kunnen verwachten. Hier heb je een stukkie:
This rivalry became well known during the forth quarter of 1998. When 3dfx announced the Voodoo3, and Nvidia announced its RIVA TNT2. Before this, both companies were working with board manufacturers and making chipsets. 3dfx mainly focussed on 3D Acceleration, while Nvidia produced 2D/3D video card solutions. They both went in opposite directions as well, with 3dfx making the Banshee. Yet, once they announced the Voodoo3 and RIVA TNT2, it was direct competition. Both companies were set out to make a complete 2D/3D video card. Did it work? To most extents, yes, it did. Both cards are very strong in several areas, and not so stable in others. 3dfx chose not allow card manufacturers to produce the Voodoo3 cards. Instead, they merged with STB to form a much larger 3dfx. STB would now make the Voodoo3 cards under 3dfx’s name. Nvidia chose to allow other companies to produce the boards that would hold the RIVA TNT2 chipsets.
