EETimes heeft een artikel gepost over de 3dfx Napalm. Naast de standaard stuff staat er ook wat info over de kaarten die erna zullen volgens, zoals de "Rampage" en "Sage". Hieronder een gedeelte:
Napalm, described as the first gigapixel product of its kind, will be very competitive with GeForce, he claimed. And coming right behind it will be a completely new architecture, code-named Rampage.
"We've spent the last 18 months having 30 engineers designing a new core from the ground up," Zacarias said. The firm expects to introduce Rampage in the first half of 2000, with production slated for the second half. An iteration of Rampage, called Sage, is in development for 2001, and a low-end version of Napalm, called Napalm LC, should be out by the end of 2000, he added.
3dfx hasn't pursued an integrated graphics-core logic chipset, as have S3 and Via Technologies with the joint venture announced earlier this month.
"Our thinking is that will be Intel's domain. It's potentially a high-volume market with no margins. Via and S3 are standing in the railroad tracks with a freight train bearing down," Zacarias said.
