Jeremy van AGN 3D heeft wat info over Canopus (bekend van de Spectra 2500 en Pure3D videokaarten):
Lately the Canopus Pure3D 2 and SPECTRA 2500 cards have been harder to find than cookies in my cookie jar. (I am really in a cookie mood this morning.) The word on the street is that Canopus may be dropping out of the consumer video card market here in the US, and stick to only high-end video editing hardware. The incredible amount of competition here in the US market, has made it hard for them to make any real penetration into a market that is currently in total gridlock. Even though Canopus has had wide acclaim with the hard core gaming market, the cards are still relatively unknown by the rest of the computer community. With no large OEM buys under their collar and the lack of and standalone 3Dfx based cards in their future product line makes further losses eminent. They also continue to have trouble with driver development, so the addition of any other chipsets than NVIDIA’s would cause a development expense that they no doubt could not afford. –Note: It has not been confirmed that Canopus is dropping out of the video card market, I am just going on rumors that I have heard.
Canopus kaarten zijn hiero in Nederland btw te koop bij o.a. Bolder Hard & Software, maar wel erg duur.
