    San Jose, Ca. - December 15, 2000



    To our valued customers:
    We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the support you've given 3dfx over the years. Through all our ups and downs, we've always been proud of our extremely loyal customers and fans. That's what makes our recent actions so difficult.


    Although we've done our best to avoid taking drastic action, we have finally been forced to admit that there is no possible way we can continue in our current state. As such, we have negotiated an agreement with nVidia that will allow us to provide the best possible result to our creditors, investors, employees and customers.


    Under this agreement, nVidia will acquire certain, specific assets from 3dfx including technology, company and product brands and other assets. In addition, the 3dfx board of directors has recommended to our shareholders the dissolution of the company over the next few months. Until that time, however, 3dfx products will remain available at various retail and online locations, and we will continue to support our current and future customers. For additional information, please see the press releases that were issued by 3dfx on December 15, 2000.


    While we firmly believe this agreement is in the best interest of all involved, we deeply regret these actions. Again, we want to extend our sincerest thanks to every one of you who helped 3dfx revolutionize 3D graphics and 3D gaming on the PC.



    Sincerely,
    Scott Sellers
    3dfx Founder and CTO

    Darren and I run the palce and we still have the original 3dfx.com domain from 3dfx Europe btw ;) it was named x-3dfx.com after 3dfx was taken over by NVIDIA Coperation , Reid Campbell was the previous owner of the 3dfx.com domain, he passed it over to Darren banfi which is BOingball, and even today we still use the original 3dfx.com domain, as being x-3dfx.com is the only active official 3dfx website in the world with an original 3dfx.com domain xD
