3DLabs throws in the towel

— 10:21 AM on February 25, 2006

Beyond3D is reporting that 3DLabs is officially exiting the PC workstation market. The company was acquired by Creative Labs four years ago and made some noise at the time about pushing into the desktop PC graphics market, but little came of it. 3DLabs will apparently switch its focus to portable handheld devices, which could be more profitable for the company than the workstation graphics market now contested by ATI and NVIDIA. 3DLabs played a major role in shepherding the OpenGL 2.0 spec and its GLSL shader language to completion.
