Of course I bit the bullet and got a GeForce3 but it did chap my hide that I was upgrading to a card from a company that bought the 3dfx remains and were sitting on them - thus making me upgrade. Some people don't want to upgrade from VoodooX because the "best" option is a good GeForce board and then they've been forced up upgrade because of business politics.
Well, I dunno, I don't think it would be a wise move on nVidia's part to continue supporting Voodoo cards. They only have a set number of engineers (some of whom are from 3dfx, I'll grant ya), and they can't afford to have some of them tinker with cards that aren't making the company money any more.
Remember when John Carmack said that nVidia's lagging a bit behind ATI because they spent resources on their XBox card? That's why they have to put their engineers on either developing new technology or writing drivers for their UDA. It just doesn't make business sense to support old hardware with unique drivers. Especially in the 3d card industry, where a slight stumble can mean the end of your business (as 3dfx found out).
Oh, and thanks for dropping by, Mark. This comment was edited on Jun 21, 13:36.
