3DO LICENSES ITS 64-BIT TECHNOLOGY TO CIRRUS FOR PERSONAL COMPUTERS

By CBR Staff Writer

The next step in 3DO Co’s strategy to save itself by driving its technology harder is to license its new 64-bit M2 three- dimensional graphics and video technology for its Interactive Multiplayer to Cirrus Logic Inc, which will combine it with its own video graphics controller technology to create new chips to bring three-dimensional capability to standard Windows personal computers. The graphics chips will be optimized for accelerating games written for Microsoft Corp’s new Direct3D Windows95 programming interface for three-dimensional applications. Cirrus Logic will manufacture and market the accelerators, and will try to persuade software developers to write for the chips. First products from the alliance are expected by Christmas. Upfront value of the deal is put at about $8m for 3DO, and there will be royalties.
