the start of 3dfx's demise was when they cut off 3rd party card manufacturers and made their own cards.

ati have at least still allowed card makers to use their chips while still selling their own cards. let's home nvidia do the same.

does anyone know who nvidia use to make their reference boards they supply to manufacturers? will they be the same people supplying boards to nvidia, or will nvidia branch out and make boards en mass too?

elvis,

the Inquirer speculated a few days ago that MSI was going to produce the FXes...and, of course, the Inquirer is never wrong....:rolleyes:

No, ati is the only one that makes ati chip based cards.

Creative makes all the nvidia reference boards for the consumer level cards(non quadro ones).
