Looks like it’s the end of the road for 3dfx products, as retailers are realizing the implications of the NVIDIA buyout. Voodoo Extreme has a purported copy of a Best Buy internal memo ordering 3dfx products pulled from the shelves. Here’s the heart of it:

3dfx announced today that they have signed a definitive agreement with Nvidia Corporation to sell to them most of 3dfx’s assets. With this agreement it has also been announced that 3dfx will discontinue techincal support after Feb. 15th. Concidering the nature of this product, we feel that continuing to provide this product to our customers will jeopardize their satisfaction with both BBY and the product long term.

We are asking that you pull all 3dfx skus listed below off of your shelves and hold in the warehouse. The product will then be sent during our January brown goods return. Your complete execution is needed on this.

A wise move from Best Buy, no doubt, and a reminder of the suddenness of 3dfx’s demise. It seems like just last week I was slaving away on my Voodoo 5 review, and now the product is dead and gone. Although I expect you could get a slightly used one cheap. I have a Voodoo 1, 2, and 5. Need to get a 3 and 4 for a straight.
