3dfx Q&A
10:35 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

An interesting thread on the 3dfxGamers messageboards was recently spotted over at Accelerate Your Mac. In this thread, a reader has posed a dozen questions to 3dfx, which Bryan Speece was nice enough to answer in detail. Here's a relevant question regarding 3dfx's recent supply shortage with their Voodoo 4/5 product line:

Q: Why the lag in production runs of the V4 (should be easier to make with only 1 VSA-100 chip)? Is there more demand for the V5, or is the production an issue with interface type (AGP first, then PCI). The V4 on the Mac is targeted squarely at the pre-press aftermarket segment. Is it the same on the Wintel side?


A: Demand for the V5 had outstripped our supply of vital components. We issued a press release to this effect just last week. Things are getting back on track now. And, before you ask, NO. It won't effect the Mac launch target.

We Reported to you last week that the component shortfall would not affect the shipment of Mac cards. Bryan also notes that their 'target' is within a month of this posting. We're betting MWNY will be the time/place, and we'll be there to make sure. Check out the rest of thread for all of the responses from 3dfx staff.
