Even though it paid ten times too much

 

Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told a court that he did not feel duped by paying $70 million for 3dfx even though it now estimates it was only worth $15 million.


Nvidia is being sued by shareholders of the Voodoo graphics board maker 3dfx which went bankrupt.  They claim the company was worth $150 million.
Lawyers for the creditors claim Nvidia was in a bidding war with Via Technologies.


They claim Nvidia did not make an offer to buy 3dfx but offered a strategic investment.
