Why? Get ATI drivers first.
Cow... 1351 people dissagree ... I am signer 1351...
I give this petition a 0% chance of causing the drivers to be finished. Nvidia has shown no interest of finalizing the Voodoo drivers for the PC, so I doubt they will bother to create fast/working drivers for OSX, especially since it would mean committing to making these drivers for a relatively small number of people. The amount of work that it would take to start writing the drivers and have them tested is probably more than Nvidia will be willing to devote to that.
Also, the fact that this is an online petition makes it less useful, because there is no way for them to be even partially sure that the signitures are valid and not falsified. I also don't think I have ever seen an online petition work.
I can't believe that many people bought 3dfx cards!
3Dfx is primo quality, if they were still in business I'd take them over ATI or nVidia any day !
i was there for the debut of both the V5 and the Radeon at MWNY '00 and well... V5 for mac just plain sucked. feel free to blame the drivers if you want, but it didnt perform well at all on the floor. they blamed it on the G4s.. i blame it on a crappy product with crappier drivers. i would've grabbed a V5 despite its poor performance for the FSAA, but even that wasnt enough to make me want to put that 12" card with two huge fans on it in my nice quiet tower.
those things are total beasts. but they are the ultimate UT card.
