    3dhq's attempt at starting the new 3dfx failed. Not many details were given, but it sounds like the startup died at the 11th hour. They had funding, ex-3dfx engineers, silicon; yet it all failed.

    Shame really. Too many startups are failing in the PC card space - ImgTec, BB, 3dHQ. Although ImgTec and BB are very alive and working in other markets

    It's a funny thing really. I am the owner of www.3dhq.net, and have been for a few years. These guys contacted me a year ago and made me an offer to purchase the domain name. They were very excited about what they were doing, and then all of sudden, it just died. I got one final email saying they were no longer interested in the domain, and that was it. No explanations, nothing. Oh well.
