It seems that the iconic and unforgotten brand of video cards, 3dfx Interactive, will return after 20 years of inactivity. At least according to this account Twitter just created, where an important one is anticipated announcement scheduled for Thursday 5th August.
As fans know very well, 3dfx was a great protagonist of the sector of video cards in the 90s with the brand Voodoo. In particular, it should be remembered the introduction on the market of the first Voodoo, an accelerator card that accompanied the main video card in the system to manage the three-dimensional calculations of video games.
The company, which at that time was a rival of NVIDIAhowever, it never reached substantial size and struggled to obtain investments, until the declaration of bankruptcy. Its properties were acquired by NVIDIA itself in 2002 for $ 70 million.
It is not clear what kind of announcement there may be on August 5th, but if it is actually a video card we will have a new main competitor in a sector that already sees NVIDIA, AMD and Intel important protagonists.
