Belated 3dfx Contest News
12:34 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story

By some egregious oversight, we neglected to mention who won the 3dfx Voodoo5 5500 PCI card that was given away by 3dfx as part of their launch of this 3D card on the Mac platform. Of course they could have let us know the information has been posted, but we're willing to forgive and forget. In any case, the free card went to S. Jacobowitz of Vermont, USA; no other details are given. Congratulations from all of the IMG staff!


In related news, 3dfxgamers.com has posted an interview with Cian Riordan, a lucky fellow who spent the Summer as an intern in 3dfx's Mac department. While this interview doesn't have much in the way of technical information, it is am interesting look inside 3dfx and an excellent example of a way to make your friends absolutely sick with jealousy. Here is an excerpt:

The Mac is really starting to take off as a computer for gaming. What are your thoughts about this?


I think it's great! It's definitely what the Mac community needs. Especially with more and more developers porting their games to the Mac and the debut of high-performance graphics cards from big players like 3dfx. It's definitely a change for the better.


How do you feel about the Voodoo board that's just come out for the Mac?


I think its great. It's definitely a good thing. People have mixed reactions about it compared to how the PC V5 compares to it, but people don't realize that this is only the beginning. Things can only get better. With competition in the video cards, more and more high-performance products will come to the Mac.

We have to agree. Read the rest of the interview for more pithy comments from this fortunate and talented Mac fanatic.
