You may remember a company that practically dominated the VGA landscape back when ATi was a smart-mouthed kid and Nvidia was still practically a toddler. 3DFX was a heavy-hitter in the past, smashing performance records year-on-year and introducing some new tech that we still use today. While their memory lives on with Nvidia, it was a company that pretty much kicked ass back in the day, but was let down by mismanagement, terrible planning and not being able to keep up with the rate of development of their competitors.
