Now that 3dfx has finally delivered a new card, the poor guys hit a supply snag. Here's the juicy bit of the press release 3dfx sent out:

SAN JOSE, Calif.- June 22, 2000 - The CEO of 3dfx Interactive® Inc. (NASDAQ:TDFX) said today that revenues for the three months ending July 31, 2000, which is the second quarter of its 2001 fiscal year, will be lower than previous expectations due to the company not receiving a substantial portion of certain components a supplier committed to provide. . . . "This shortfall is extremely frustrating, as the company has been on course for returning to operating profitability," Dr. Alex Leupp said. "We believe this temporary component shortfall will result in deferred rather than lost revenues, and, therefore, we remain confident about our third quarter."
I wonder what parts are short??

Anyhow, in case you're wondering what you may be missing, I suggest reading EH's Voodoo 5 5500 extravaganza. Vince over there always does solid work, and he's covered just about everything V5-wise. If you have already read the first part of Vince's review, start here for the new stuff, since he's just updated it.

Meanwhile, a Voodoo 5 5500 has made its way into Damage Labs for evaluation. We're poking, prodding, benching, and graphing, so expect a follow-up to our GeForce 2 review in a week or so.
