3dfx

(3dfx Interactive, San Jose, California) A company that specialized in 3D accelerator chips and arcade game subsystems used by major graphics cards manufacturers. Founded in 1994, 3dfx also developed its own line of graphics cards but had strong competition from NVIDIA. In addition, its lack of support for the upcoming DirectX API caused the company to declare bankruptcy in 2000. NVIDIA acquired its IP assets. See Voodoo Graphics.
