3dfx is a graphics card manufacturer founded in 1994, which in the past was a popular company responsible for this type of systems, but as a result of the crisis in 2002, it closed its doors. Still, in several 3dfx circles it is considered one of the pioneers of the GPU market.
The collapse of 3dfx is currently assessed in various ways, there are no votes that the situation was caused by bad management decisions, including excessive emphasis on research and development, as well as the price of Voodoo, which was not a cheap proposition. The company's achievements are quite solid, as their offer included Voodoo series cards used in many computers. Today, when the leaders are NVIDIA and AMD and you look for alternatives in vain, and maybe you could use a competitor for two giants? There is a chance for this, because information has been released to the network that the legendary GPU manufacturer intends to resume operations, independent of the Greens, after about 20 years.
3dfx is expected to resume operations 20 years after the collapse.

The account called 3dfx available on Twitter unexpectedly announced the return of the brand, and we will get to know the specific one next Thursday during a special event. Are you sure this return is being prepared? Well, these are unconfirmed revelations, and the profile itself has not been verified by the social network, so everything should be approached with a lot of reserve for now. In addition, all patent and product rights remain with NVIDIA and the company would have to start all over again. To sum up, there is a probability that the action was carried out by internet jokers and this dream of many players may not actually come true. In a way, 3dfx was “revived” by a PC enthusiast who recreated Voodoo 5 6000 graphics card.
Interestingly, this version never hit the consumer market, but that did not prevent Anthony from creating the project. Voodoo 5 6000 was a single slot graphics card based on the 3dfx VSA-100 (Napalm 30) system. 3dfx is a name that nowadays younger readers of our website probably do not know, but it remains in the memory of older users. Would you like the return of 3dfx or do you think that this is definitely a closed chapter in the history of the technology industry?
