3Dfx & Others

After some problems with implementation of new technology in 2000, 3dfx was bought by nVidia.
PowerVR still waiting for good moment to return on graphics chipset market.
In partnership with VIA, S3 continue to produce more advanced graphics chipsets.
XGI is successor of SiS and Trident
