Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Reports on hardware pages say that 3Dfx not only missed its shipping date of 24 June for its Voodoo 3 3500 but has also missed 15 July, its secondary date. That, coupled with S3's latest results, has led to speculation from reliable sources that a deal with Diamond may be off and a deal with Nvidia may be on. A hardware page, FullOn3d, reported the lack of the 3500 board yesterday, and that was confirmed by reliable sources close to the company today. The problem is overheating and that may lead to a redesign of the card, the sources added. Further, S3's results may lead to a re-evaluation of the takeover bid on Diamond, our source added. Nvidia could be top of the list in the running, he said. If any of these companies would care to ring The Register and issue their denials or affirmations, the lines are currently open. ®
