NVIDIA Conference Call Notes
3:45 PM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Derek Perez of NVIDIA hosted a conference call this morning to address the questions and concerns of the media regarding their acquisition of 3dfx' core assets. Here is a snip from the Q&A session:

3dfx was about two months away from releasing its next generation product before the asset sale. Will NVIDIA release 3dfx's product?

In general, we do not comment on unannounced products. Currently, it has no weight or bearing on our plans since we already have a planned release schedule.

Hiring? Is 100 new employees enough?

We're always looking for talented people. One-hundred people is a godsend for our company, but it will not alter our plans for hiring next year.

Do you have any plans or the legal capability to do Glide support?

We will get the Glide technology, but it's not clear at this time if or how we're going to use it.

While it is unclear at this time how these developments will affect Mac gaming, it is obviously going to have a profound effect on the industry itself. Read on for more excerpts from this press conference.
