Combatsim heeft een interview met Scott Sellers (leuke naam voor een PR mannetje) van 3dfx op z'n site geplaatst. Hier een vraag over hoe Scott denkt over z'n kameraden bij nVidia en S3:
Q) Since the introduction of the GeForce 256, many have questioned how the next generation 3dfx chip will stack up. However, given the specs for the Savage 2000, it appears that S3's chipset is the one that is really leading the pack right now. You have mentioned that you believe the next 3dfx card will be better than GF256 in most games. . .do you feel the same about the Savage 2000?
A: Actually, we try not to judge a potential competitor's product simply based on spec sheets. We can only really comment on our ability to compete against the GeForce 256 because we've seen it in action and Nvidia has pretty much fully disclosed that part.
S3, on the other hand, has not demonstrated their product publicly (at least to my knowledge) and so we really don't know whether their product lives up to the hype or not. All we can go on is S3's track record of delivering products which are compelling for the OEM markets because they are feature rich, but are not particularly successful in the gaming market because of their lackluster performance in real-world games and applications.
As a result, we'll have to wait and see some early reviews on Savage 2000 before we can go in depth of how we intend to dominate that product in the gaming sector. S3 has the experience behind them, so we are keeping a close eye on them.
Net zoals in andere interviews van o.a. Firingsquad blijft 3dfx ook hier benadrukken dat de Voodoo4 goed zal zijn voor de huidige generatie games en dat de Savage2000 en GeForce 256 ongebalanceerde designs zouden zijn.
