I can only say that nVidia will never attain the awesomeness that 3dfx STILL has. Whether it is an April Fool's or not.

I like this article, while mainly an April Fools I think there's some subtle truths to it and a tip-off to the small communities of 3dfx fans.

The same for me.

Would be great if you at nVIDIA could release others 3dfx's stuff, like ads, wallpapers, never-seen-things and so on /shifty.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':shifty:' /> ...

3dfx played a huge role in my life, getting me into gaming/computers. They are gone, but I will remember them as everyone else had. (f'in awesome) nVidia is my new 3dfx. I enjoy 3dfx and all it's is/was made up of simply because, you have to know where you have been to know where you are going. Best April Fools ever! [color="#FF8C00"]Voodoo[/color] sounds/looks/is cooler than GTX though... :p

A few pics of my 3dfx stuff - :)

Although VSA-100 was late to the market and didn't survive in competition, this joke is really stupid. Let 3Dfx rest in peace. Some day you'll be there, too.
