Folks, I just found a workstation-alike product described Pinnacle 3DFX Standalone. The item description said:

.....Your looking at and bidding on a used 3D Pinnacle "Pizza Box" for real time 3D effects.  This does not come with SCSI cable or documentation or anything other than a power cord.  This was used and in working order.....

SCSI cable? "Pizza box"-type workstation? What this product is all about? I have heard about Quantum 3D Mercury or AAlchemy, but I've never heard about "Pinnacle 3DFX" before. What is this product, actually?

By the way, here's the pic:

3dfx/3Dfx is not the same as 3DFX...

So it is not a 3dfx product? But how can it use the trademarked 3dfx brand name, then?
