3Dfx Interactive has bought graphics board manufacturer STB for an estimated $141 million.
The deal will be accounted for by a share for share transaction, with STB investors getting .65 shares of 3Dfx common stock.
Subject to regulatory details, the acquisition will be completed by March of next year and helps to catapult 3Dfx into an even more powerful position in the add in board business.
It will also narrow the options for end users, but both companies claimed the deal would mean a single source for 3Dfx branded add in boards, which will help price stability.
Technically it will allow for closer integration at the chip, software and board level and faster designs for cheaper solutions, 3Dfx said.
