PC Blits heeft een artikel gepost over 3Dfx, die het met in prijs dalende aandelen, harde concurrentie en kritiek van het publiek op nieuwe produkten niet al te relaxed heeft op dit moment.
Having fought off all competitors throughout the life of the Voodoo 1 and keeping a healthy lead with the Voodoo 2, 3DFX was sitting pretty. Their successful IPO and the subsequent rise of their stock past the $30 dollar mark left the company with abundant amounts of cash. Things were going great with the future very bright for the company. However, far in the distance, a dark storm was brewing.
3DFX had in the past always been able to fight off its competitors with superior technology and the support of its legions of fans. I remember seeing several votes on websites that asked the question of what the best next generation video product would be or what company is the best at making 3d accelerator chips and inevitably it seemed, 3DFX would win. These votes weren't too accurate usually and only serve to show the amount of support this company had with its customers.
