    i think its time we start our own company £10 from each user would give us over half a million, we have programmers in our community, and we have hardware specilists.

    i say we form tpugfx both to make awesome graphics cards, and to confuse people with a name with only one vowel

    Ironic. Nvidia buys out 3dFx years ago, cuts support for 3dfx users and replaces the website with "no longer supported blah blah" crap. Love that they put effort into an April 1st joke but put no effort into potential customers. Nvidia will never change. Took me a few years to purchase one of their products, but I guess a lack of competition brings little choice.

    I'd buy a Voodoo 590, but certainly not a GeForce 590.

    Holy good god someone went through a lot to post this joke,Although it does remind me of the old 3dfx website that was up after Nvidia bought them..


    most cards have 2 gpu`s on one board, the voodoo 590 has a whopping 233 vsa 100 chips.:respect:
