nVidia: Alliance with 3Dfx
The partner of 3Dfx, the company Quantum3D, will continue to be supplied with the 3Dfx chips from nVidia. Among other things, Quantum3D manufactures the Voodoo5 6000 with four VSA 100 chips.
However, after a transition period, only chips from nVidia will be used, not those from 3Dfx. The workstations from Quantum3D have been equipped with GeForce 2 chips for some time. After NVidia had decided to take over 3Dfx, it was not clear whether Quantum3D would continue to deliver graphics cards with 3Dfx chips. Only recently, at the end of 2000, Quantum3D secured the rights to produce the Voodoo5 6000.
