Production of GeForce 3 chips stopped

Allegedly, Nvidia has already started delivering the new graphics chips NV17 and NV25 to the major graphics card manufacturers in order to avoid delays in the market launch of the GeForce 4 (NV25) and the GeForce 4 MX (NV17).

As can be read on this Ukrainian page , Nvidia is said to have stopped the production of GeForce 3 chips in order to convert the factories to the new chips in good time. But since the large graphics card manufacturers should still have large quantities of the 3 series, there will probably be no delivery problems until the introduction of the GeForce 4, and a rapid disappearance from the market should be excluded for the GeForce 3 cards. Corresponding price reductions for GeForce 3 cards are to be expected due to stock clearing after the introduction of the GeForce 4 cards.
