While never a threat in the performance arena, the 3Dlabs Permedia-based 3rd Party Cards to the tune of seven million units in A long running saga that would grow to encompass elements of myth and urban legend was born at the Assembly gaming event in Junewhen BitBoys announced their Pyramid3D graphics to the world. But Pyramid3D never saw the light of day, with extensive debugging and revisions delaying the project, and TriTech losing a sound chip patent suit that eventually bankrupted the company.

Bitboys would go on to announce a second design, the Glaze3D 3Dlabs Permedia-based 3rd Party Cards, on May 15, They promised class-leading performance and a planned release by the end of The company was making a reputation for itself missing release dates and essentially producing nothing but vapourware.

Glaze3D was later redesigned under the codename Axe, catching up to the competition with support for DirectX 8.

The new chip was meant to debut as the Avalanche3D card by the end 3Dlabs Permedia-based 3rd Party Cards and in the meantime a third development of Glaze3D codenamed Hammer was already promising DirectX 9 support. Prototype Glaze3D boards were made with the initial run of chips, but everything came to a halt when Infineon stopped producing embedded DRAM in due to mounting financial loses.

Lacking a manufacturing partner Bitboys finally gave up on desktop graphics and instead focused on mobile graphics IP.

BitBoys' exit and AMD's blunder: Soon after, ATI and Nokia entered into a long term strategic partnership. The latter continues to produce graphics under the name Adreno an anagram of Radeon as an integral component of the hugely popular Snapdragon SoC.

Intel launched its first and last so far commercial discrete 3D desktop gaming chip back in January The i traces its origins from a NASA flight simulation project for the Apollo space program by General Electric and later sold to Martin Marietta who merged with Lockheed three years later. The Sega Model 3 arcade board featured two of the Pro graphics systems. Intel bought 20 per cent of Real3D in 3Dlabs Permedia-based 3rd Party Cards, a month before the i launched.

By this stage Intel had already purchased a per cent of 3Dlabs Permedia-based 3rd Party Cards and Technologies in July Performance and image quality were acceptable, with performance roughly matching high-end offerings of the previous year. A few boards made it out of the manufacturing plant, but like the i, instead made it into integrated graphics chipsets. Many of the staff subsequently moved over to Intel or ATI. ATI gave the Rage Pro a makeover in Februarywhich basically consisted of renaming the card Rage Pro Turbo and delivering a set of drivers highly optimized for synthetic benchmarks.

Drivers from beta2 onwards improved gaming performance. Supply was less than ideal for the retail channel until into the new year, however, which effectively killed any chance ATI had to stamp their mark on the gaming landscape as they had done with the OEM market. Unfortunately for ATI, many games and the hardware fit-out of many users at the time were geared for bit color. Image quality was 3Dlabs Permedia-based 3rd Party Cards the same as the mainstream competition from S3 and Nvidia, yet still lagged behind that of Matrox.

In the end, insurmountable software issues doomed the company to a four-year lifespan.
