3dfx pulled from shelves

NVidia has requested that all current 3dfx 3D cards be pulled from the BestBuy shelves and to not be sold, due to the sale of 3dfx to NVidia:

"3dfx will discontinue techincal support after Feb. 15th. Concidering the nature of this product, we feel that continuing to provide this product to our customers will jeopardize their satisfaction with both BBY and the product long term.

We are asking that you pull all 3dfx skus listed below off of your shelves and hold in the warehouse."

Screw Nvidia! they won't evem Let 3dfx die in peace. They're just peeved that the Voodoo5's graphics looks much clearer than the geforce 2! and WTF are they going to do to all those video cards and vsa-100 chips? They ought to just sell them off! bunch of d**kheads!

Ya know what, i was tired of 3dfx crapping out piece of shit cards and then choping the price in half a few weeks later. Now nvidia decided to buy this crap factory of a company for its own use to help nvidia churn out its sky-high priced cards that nobody can afford. so what i think is that both of these companies are shitty in their own rights. So who do you buy a quality decent priced video card from? ATI RADEON BABY! YEAH!

3DFX dead... it is pity in a way but I think, even if I would shocked some people, than it is better. I will never forget it, the creator of 3D that fully satisfied me ( I have a Banshee ).But 3DFx was kicked out since a lot of time, because of commercial and technical errors. example, by let the hardware acceleration with 16 bit-color... and a lot of things.NVidia?? Now it is alone and it is dangerous. Keep Glide and the technical support! That's all I ask.

I have an old voodoo2 and I realy like it. I know that this is an old construction but it still works. The driver support was good I always had updated drivers. But now I'll have to buy a new one (I would have done it sooner or later, maybe sooner) and I'm sure it won't be a F*CKING nVidia card because nVidia sucks and they can lick my A*s with their F*UCKING prices. I'll buy an ATI for sure. I'll always remember you 3DFX

f**king ass lickers at nvidia take over 3dfx and take out tech support. 3dfx brought 3d to the pc at affordable prices. And now they let this asshole company nvidia jack up the prices and be the dominant 3dmakers. I hope ATI can show these fools up soon. WE WILL MISS YOU 3dfx. HAIL to the king baby!

all you and nividia kis my f**k**g ass, i just went on a spree, and bought my self a brand new Voodoo5 5500 and 4 wot? nVidia can go die in hell, and i hope u lead a peainfully slow deatch, im going so sell this card to get ATI Radeon 64MB DDR now!! GO ATI (never thought id have to say it) but i will never forget you 3DFX :*( never

I am shocked and dismayed by this latest news. This does not look good for all the gamers out there I don't care what kind of BS story NVidia comes up with to calm the public. I was bad enought when the chipset manufactures started buying up the video card manufactures and giving the consumer less choices, but now it would seem that the consumer is being hung out to dry once again. This is just the worst possible news that could ever hit the computer industry as far as I see it.Icingdeath

3dfx pulled from shelves

Muwahahahahhhaha 3dfx sucks d**k andso does ati. There radeon is nothingcompared to geforce2 ultra. Nvidia is kingand will be forever. Hahaha, when everyone hada voodoo and I was stuck with my riva128I swore to them 3dfx would die and nvidia wouldrule, guess thats true.

3dfx pulled from shelves

At what cost???? Yeah we "may" see 3dfx technology in future Nvidia products, but I bet you that the consumer will have to pay though the damn nose for it. This suck ass dude. At least when Nvidia had 3dfx to compete with price were reasonable. Now whats to stop them from hiking prices ATI??? Please don't make me laugh we all know that ATI hasn't put out a 3d card that is really worth a damn. Look don't get me wrong I don't think that there is anything wrong with Nivida personally I think they make great cards. I am just worried about the limitation of choices to us the consumer in the 3d graphics card industry.

nvidia are making a BIG, BIG mistake. their products were ok but playing games like this will definately backfire on THEM. 3dfx cards are the most compatable i have found. ive owned them all even a TNT/TNT2 ultra and are cheap crap. so f***ck you navidia!

3dfx pulled from shelves

I used to love 3dfx, I had a Voodoo 1,2 & 3 but now 3dfx has been taken over by nVIDIA who in my opinion are the better company. Sorry guys 3dfx is dead and there is nothing we can do about it, except live with the fact that they will still live on some day in nVIDIA cards!Heres to the future!

3dfx pulled from shelves

Últimamente 3dfx tenía algun altibajo que otro, pero esto se llevó la palma. Un colega ha visto la Geforce y aún así continua dicendo que los juegos con 3dfx se ven mejor. Yo opino lo mismo. Ahora no tendré más remedio que pillarme una ATI RADEON. Por cierto que se supone que quiere hacer NVidia con la tecnología 3dfx??? tendrá EnVidia???Espero que Ati desbanque a Nvidia en unos cuantos meses... todo se verá con el tiempo. Palabra. :_(

I have a Voodoo 3 2000 and I never needed any technical support and now I'll never get itso waht to do?Buy a whole new 3D Blaster Annihilator 2 Ultra WHILE they keep it this price, BUY IT NOW OR YOU'LL REGRET IT ON THE FUTURE3dfx is AWESOME, but NVidia is BETTER

3dfx pulled from shelves

Oh yeah, "3dfx is more compatible...". That´s what happens when you get a MONOPOLY...everyone uses your proprietary API, and to hell with competition...don´t get me wrong, I used a V3 card for a long time, a excelent product, but now I own a Geforce2 and compatibility issues arise...Am I mad with Nvidia? NOT AT ALL, since it´s not their fault that game developers only gave attention to Glide when building games, and then would patch up (poorly) their products (when patched) to work w/ other APIs...Now that we have a superior product, we sometimes can´t get a game to work because programmers were doctrined in using the monopolist API, leaving open-code like OpenGL (best API EVER!) an D3D in second plane...I hope now that we can play any game with any card, since API MONOPOLY is OVER! (I hope)...

3dfx pulled from shelves

Oh, yeah, good advice phalcon...Buy your NV card NOW, while the price is (not really) cheap, because now we can only expect a SKYROCKET, Pentium-style rise in prices...any doubt on that, since main competition is over? (ATI is NOT a heavy contender in high-end 3d folks...yet)

3dfx pulled from shelves

I love my Vodoo 5!It is a great pice of tech, and nVIDIA shouldn't be allowed to pull it from the shelves!!!I am sure nVIDIA will quickly replace it with some $800 POS that has more power than I will ever need at a price I can never afford!I don't know how anyone can think this is a good move! We finally had some healthy competition in the 3d card market, but nVIDIA had to mess that up, didn't they? Now they have a monopoly. Now their is only one line of cards to buy... overpriced, overpowered, bug prone nVIDIA cards.THIS SUX!!!!!nVIDIA, U SUCK!Bring back my 3dfx!

3dfx pulled from shelves

Liola, Direct3d is second plane (whatever that means) cuz it is WORTHLESS! Most games look like crap in Direct3d. 3dfx had/has the superior product. If they didn't why would nVIDI be buying them?Oh, and about all your monopoly bitching... WHO HAS THE MONOPOLY NOW??? LOOKS LIKE nVIDI DOES!!!!

3dfx pulled from shelves

a question for all you 3dfx lovers... if they make such a good product then why were they nearly bankrupt and why did the sell such a "wonderful" (wonderful my ass) company? it wouldnt have anything to do with their lack of sales due to outdated technology would it?3DFX was dead from the moment they brought out voodoo 2. they had the best card on the market at that stage and didnt strive to improve so they got left in nvidias dust.

3dfx pulled from shelves

3DFX has allways been ahead of nVIDIA, now they are going to destroy all that 3DFX has stood for, why? I can't believe it, why are they going to stop selling voodoo it has never failed me or anyone I know, and now this.. My only hope is thar nVIDIA will release a card for us voodoo users that is as good as voodoo 6 was going to be..Hope this is going to bring something good out of it and not a major monopoly with f**king high prices.. Tnx for the word.
