                shall tender to Ogle the following:

                (a)     Three hundred thousand dollars ($300,000) as payment of
                        his Parachute Payment as that term is defined in the
                        Employment Agreement as Amended payable as 3dfx's entire
                        fee simple interest in that certain condominium and
                        personal property therein known as Unit 611, located at
                        the Texas Motor Speedway, free and clear of all liens

                        condominium. Pursuant to this transfer, 3dfx will
                        execute a General Warranty Deed transferring the
                        condominium and all personal property therein to William

                        unpaid taxes and assessments accrued or accruing for the
                        year 2000, pro-rated through November 29, 2000. The

                        hundred thousand dollars ($300,000) for the condominium
                        and all personal property located therein. A copy of
                        said General Warranty Deed shall be attached to this
                        Settlement Agreement as Exhibit B and incorporated
                        herein, and all personal property found in that certain
                        condominium known as Unit 611, located at the Texas
                        Motor Speedway, listed on Exhibit C

                (b)     An assignment of fifty percent (50%) of all future
                        principal and interest payments payable by Enseo, Inc.
                        beginning February 2001 (the "Assignment") under that
                        certain promissory note executed by Enseo, Inc.
                        ("Enseo") owed to 3dfx in the principal amount of
                        $3,000,000 dated March 1, 2000 (the "Note") and the
                        security agreement entered into as collateral for such
                        Note, as payment for any remaining claims made by Ogle
                        against 3dfx in the Arbitration or otherwise released
                        pursuant to this Agreement. A copy of such assignment of
                        the payments due under the Note and security interest is
                        attached here to as Exhibit D. Such assignment is
                        without recourse against 3dfx for collection of those
                        amounts from Enseo unless such payment(s) are actually
                        received by 3dfx, in which case 3dfx shall hold Ogle's
                        share of such payment(s) in trust for Ogle and forward
                        them to Ogle within five business days of receipt from
                        Enseo. 3dfx agrees to instruct Enseo to pay directly to
                        Ogle the entire principal and interest from Enseo's
                        payments of the next three (3) Note payments, namely,
                        the principal and interest payments made in February
                        2001, May 2001, and August, 2001 and forty-three and
                        65/100 percent (43.65%) of all such future payments made
                        by Enseo under the Note. Such letter of instruction is
                        attached hereto as Exhibit E with a payment schedule
                        outlining the percentages and amounts to be paid
                        attached thereto. It is expressly agreed and understood
                        among the Parties that, in the event Enseo defaults on
                        any or all of its Note payments, Ogle shall have no
                        recourse against 3dfx, and any default by Enseo does not
                        constitute a breach of this Agreement. In the event of a
                        default by Enseo, under the Note, however, both 3dfx and
                        Ogle retain a right to sue Enseo on the Note and to
                        foreclose the security interest to the extent of their
                        fifty percent (50%) interest in Enseo's obligations
                        under the Note.

                (c)     As additional consideration, 3dfx hereby releases Ogle
                        from all obligations under the Employment Agreement as
                        Amended.

                (d)     As additional consideration, 3dfx hereby agrees that any
                        Indemnification Agreement executed between Ogle and 3dfx
                        or STB will remain in full force and effect as relates
                        to claims asserted against Ogle as an officer or
                        director of 3dfx or STB for acts taking place prior to
                        Ogle's resignation.

                                                                          PAGE 3
