    Shame that S3 as major GPU producer did not survive..I just randomly went to visit their webpage,I think the last product they listed is dated 2008,but they were seriously behind it the terms of technology..shame..

    S3 where more about onbored Grafix for cheap besk top p.c.s
    I code never see them competing with the likes of ATI @ nvidia
    In the Gameing market.

    back during the days of 3dfx anyway. during the days of the SiS 315E, when matrox did more than just multi displays, pretty much anytime before the geforce.

    you should do fundraisers, sell off the old cards to get updated benching systems. TPU members would totally go for it.

    those old cards arent worth anything. for $5 it's not worth the work to pack them up, bring them to the post office, ship them, babysit the buyers

    as this thread shows, some TPU users certainly would have. of course its up to you, but you coulda sold off the lot as a bulk sale or something.
