Status of 3D Cards, Makers
8:40 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Hardware and news analysis web site AnandTech has posted an editorial entitled "A Torrid Affair with Graphics: April 2001 3D Market Update," talking about the future prospect of companies such as ATI, Matrox and of course NVIDIA. While the editorial does contain some techspeak jargon, it does offer a good view on what cards are to come and how they will affect the world of gaming. Here is their prediction of what the future holds for ATI:

Another project that ATI has been working on is a response to the GeForce2 Ultra, a 64MB Radeon DDR running at a 250MHz core clock with a 250MHz DDR memory clock. We actually first found out about this card months ago when ATI accidentally used this 250/250MHz card in some benchmarks they sent us. We have seen pictures of this card, sometimes referred to as the Radeon SE, appear on the web already. It is still unclear if ATI will go ahead with this card, however if they do, it will definitely be very aggressively priced.
While there isn't much here for Mac users, it is an interesting look at the state of the market and what might trickle down to our platform in the future.
