In a lawsuit launched last month, it was alleged that some of the individuals who worked for Visiontek's former investment firm Advanced Equities used inside knowledge and Visiontek resources to start BFG Technologies. It was further alleged that investment funds that were headed for Visiontek were diverted to BFG and that both Nvidia and Mitac knew about this and supported the moves.
Now, Visiontek is being reorganised to operate as a division within the Hartford Computer Group, which recently acquired it along with the XTASY brand. It is planning to announce a new line of memory modules, flash memory cards, and graphics cards in the coming weeks.
"Visiontek has a long retail history that customers like. Now it can provide them with the comfort of the Visiontek brand as well as the best hardware and technology available in the market", said Patricia Mikula, Public Relations Manager of Desktop Products for ATI.
ATI Technologies has appointed Hartford's Visiontek division as a "Premium Retail Partner" for North America. Hartford will offer a complete lineup of ATI Radeon products, ranging from entry-level graphics solutions to high-end gaming products for the hardcore PC enthusiast.
Hartford plans to make its new line of XTASY graphic cards available through retail in the Q1 of 2003. VisionTek's graphics products will come with a limited lifetime warranty and toll free technical support. µ
