3dfx Garners Two "Best PC Hardware" Awards at ECTS 2000

3dfx unleashes the raw power of the VSA-100 architecture in Europe leaving competitor products in the dust

London, UK - September 11, 2000 -3dfx InteractiveŽ Inc. (NASDAQ:TDFX) today announced that 3dfx graphics accelerator products were awarded two "Best of Show" Awards during last week's ECTS 2000, Europe's premier interactive entertainment exposition. After awards were cast by visitors who logged onto the ECTS website, Voodoo5(tm) 5500 AGP was crowned the coveted ECTS "Star

award for "Best PC Hardware." Voodoo5 6000 AGP garnered Eurogamer.net's "Best of PC Hardware" award citing that "it should be one of the fastest graphics cards on the planet.

"With both nVIDIA and 3dfx showing blindingly fast new products, this was a tough decision to make, but in the end it was 3dfx that won," said John Bye, editor in chief for Eurogamer.net. "The Voodoo5 6000 should reclaim the speed crown for 3dfx. When released next month it should be one of the fastest graphics cards on the planet, and its full-scene anti-aliasing capabilities means that it should also have the best image quality.

"The Voodoo5 architecture delivers simply the best visual quality, across more titles, at the highest frame rates available," said Scott Sellers, chief technology officer at 3dfx Interactive. "Users who have experienced the industry's first hardware-based full-scene anti-aliasing capability no longer will accept the jagged edges and "pixel popping" found on many of our competitors' products. With the industry's only hardware anti-aliasing solution and best game compatibility hands down, it's only natural that our European customers would select our products as Best of Show.
