A new build of VSA100-based cards is fine, but I see two major problems:
- If these cards will be selled, there is this small little license problem with nVidia. Building one card is okay and doesn't matter, building say 100 cards and selling them maybe not.
- There's a limited amount of spare VSA100s available, because they are not made anymore. Building new cards with them lowers the possibility to repair the original cards. If somebody can produce new chips, then it's gonna be fine.
The idea of new cards is totally fine, but it is not good for the original cards.
Just my two cents.
At least you understand me to a certain degree interesting I respect your post fully
And yeaps you will have to deal with NVIDIA they bought all rights and patents of 3dfx back in 2000, so there is that as well.
And as most know NVIDIA are brutal ass wipes when it comes to such things, so I hope you can find a way around that.
Linus Torvalds knows what its like to work with a company like n-Greedia lol
Also if NVIDIA finds out you are making money from something they actually own, but without their permission and that goes for anything 3dfx labelled that is newly made, I am sure they will make a quick end to this as well they are like that.
Unless Anthony made good appointments or some form of an agreement with NVIDIA then it can be different.
But hey all might go well and things might not have to be as dark as presumed.
