3D Wars heeft een interview afgenomen met Stacey Long, een PR menneke van S3/Diamond. Hieronder een paar vragen:
Q9) Aside from these 'rants' with current products, tell us a few things that we should expect to see come out of Diamond in the next few months. Are there going to be any new products other than the video and sound card market?
A9) Definintely! S3 has chosen to aggressively pursue some solid technologies specifically within the multimedia division the next year including innovations in the video and mobile arena. One of the main points of interest being the industry's first and only notebook 3D gaming solution and third generation motion compensation from our video group (featured on the ViperII) S3 is also moving forward in the communications arena with upcoming announcements about our home networking and Rio innovations as well technology advancements with our professional graphics division. So everyone is pretty excited and busy around here!
Q10) How is Diamond standing as a company? Did the S3 merger roll over well? Has it proven to be a good move?
A10) Not sure I understand the question as "Diamond" no longer exists as a company. To coin the phrase "We are One"-we are now S3, Diamond exists only as a brand name. With regards to the merger-So far everything has been relatively smooth as far as mergers go. As Diamond we have been successful in communicating that we are aggressively targeting the high end gamer and the mainstream PC consumer. Now with S3's backing our products will continue to reflect our dedication to that commitment.
