Update: as expected, the account was made with the sole purpose of trolling. The 3dfx is not coming back. 

3DFX Interactive to “return” after its assets were acquired by Jansen Products, claims a doubius tweet

Jansen Products, supposedly a new investment company in San Franciso, claims to have acquired the assets of 3dfx Interactive. 

The company released a short statement on a Twitter account carrying a “3dfx Interactive” handle. Jansen Products claims to have acquired the assets of the 3dfx Interactive on July 23rd and is now in a process of trademarking the name. If all that is true, it is truly bizarre to see an announcement of a brand’s return, before the name is even trademarked. Also, Jansen sounds a lot like “Jensen” a name of the founder and CEO of NVIDIA.

The assets of the 3dfx Interactive were mostly acquired by NVIDIA, especially the intellectual property rights. However, who exactly owned the brand right now is not quite clear. The statement claims that the company plans to produce graphic cards and other products such as smartphones and smart TVs. This company would without a doubt not produce its own graphics processors though.

We have not been able to find any trace of the trademark acquisition nor any trace of Jansen Products operating in San Franciso. However, it is a few days since the Twitter account was made, and clearly, no other company has decided to take it down.

With everything in mind, we believe that this account is just for trolling and such a company does not exist. We decided to make this post only after receiving countless tips from our readers.
