Matrox! (spelling?) I remember that brand before ATI and nVidia became the two head honchos. My family had a Matrox G200, I believe.
The M3D was one of the only cards on the market powered by NEC's PowerVR chip. It was technically superior to what 3DFX was selling at the time. It had 800x600 resolution compared with 640x480 and didn't require a pass through like Voodoo did.
Unfortunately, NEC screwed up the roll out of the next generation by devoting the chips produced to a certain console that shall remain nameless and by the time they got the next one to market it was essentially too little too late.
The performance on the M3D wasn't the greatest, but the chip had potential. And it was quite affordable.
