The Inq writes Intel has quietly acquired most of the 3Dlabs graphics team:
Back on the 24th February this year, 3Dlabs and its mother company Creative Labs announced plans to "refocus" 3Dlabs' interests on mobile and handheld market. The company also said that it will cut its workforce to only 100 people. We learned that a whole group of very talented engineers from Fort Collins, Colorado moved across to Intel.

Intel offered them a shelter as those guys have made 3D graphic powerhouse workstation chips for many years and because those guys actually designed most of the specs for Open GL 2.0 specification. They should not have much trouble to "refocus" their interest to the discrete graphics that Intel yearns for so much.
