Background: 3dfx (also called 3dfx Interactive) was a company that specialized in the manufacturing of 3D graphics processing units and, later, graphics cards. It was a pioneer in the field from the late 1990s until 2000, when it underwent one of the most high-profile demises in the history of the PC industry. It was headquartered in San Jose, California until, on the verge of bankruptcy, many of its intellectual assets (and many employees) were acquired by its rival, NVIDIA. 3dfx Interactive filed for bankruptcy on October 15, 2002.
Logo: On a black background, we see the letters "3dfx" (with the second line of the X removed) facing to the bottom-left side of the screen. The logo suddenly rotates to us. After the logo stops a curved line draws itself and stops in the left side of the X, forming the finished letter and logo.
FX/SFX: The word rotating, the line drawing and forming the logo.
Availability: Seen on the Carmaggedon Splat pack, MDK and Wizardry 8 for the PC.
Editor's Note: None.
