3dfx Interactive is a company that should be familiar to most GPU and graphics cards enthusiasts who grew up during the nineties, having developed historic products and technologies such as the various Voodoo Graphics add-in cards and Glide API for enhancing rendering performance. While the company has long been out of game due to its acquisition by NVIDIA over 20 years ago (December 15, 2000), 3dfx Interactive shocked its fans today by making a tweet indicating that it is planning some sort of comeback two decades after its dismissal. There is little indication on what this could be about, but 3dfx Interactive has promised that it will have more to share as part of a “major announcement” scheduled for Thursday, August 5. A member associated with Russia’s ModLabs.net demonstrated a modernized version of 3dfx Interactive’s most powerful Voodoo product, the Voodoo 5 6000, earlier this year.

3dfx Interactive is coming back, 20 years later. Prepare for an major announcement regarding our return this Thursday!
