3dfx finally released their financial results for the second quarter this afternoon, and it's not pretty. The Voodoo-meisters lost $100.5 million dollars. Two-thirds of the loss was the cost of buying up Gigapixel, but however you look at the numbers, they lost a load of money.

Some other sites are reporting a wholesale return to the chips-only business for 3dfx, but if that was in the conference call, I missed it. Sounds to me like they're just making concessions for the needs of big PC makers.
