CeBIT 2000 3dfx launched its Voodoo 4 and 5 cards in Europe today, along with a Web site for the region. Gamers clustered around the company's stand at CeBIT, eagerly awaiting tomorrow's appearance of the 'real' Lara Croft and gazing fixedly at games using the latest, much delayed Voodoo cards. Forthcoming and current titles supporting the cards shown on the stand included Eidos' Tomb Raider 4 and Final Fantasy VIII, Activision's Star Trek Voyager Elite Force, and Virgin Interactive's Messiah and Evolva. The cards, one for PCs and the other for Apple computers, are due to be on European shop shelves this spring. Pricing is still not available. The company has also started a multilingual Web site for the EMEA region, offering information on distributors, OEM partners and retailers of its products. The site offers developers and gamers the chance to download the latest versions of Glide, OpenGL and DirectX, as well as authoring tools and runtime engines. The facility is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Dutch, Portuguese, Finnish and Russian. The company was also keen to point out that 3dfx fanatics would be able to visit an online shop, which will offer all manner of 3dfx-branded merchandise, "from T-shirts, caps and a leather jacket, to specialist items such as golf balls, umbrellas and a stylish 3dfx attache case". ®
