personal property described in each Equipment Schedule executed pursuant hereto,
subject to the terms and conditions of this Master Equipment Lease Agreement
("Master Lease") and the applicable Lease Line Schedule (defined below). The
"Equipment" (as defined in the Lease Line Schedules) is being leased for
commercial or business purposes only, and not for personal, home, or family
purposes. The parties agree that each Lease is a "finance lease" under the
Uniform Commercial Code (as in effect in the State of California during the term
of the Lease and referred to hereafter as the "UCC").

         2. LEASE LINE SCHEDULE. "Lease Line Schedule" means a Lease Line
Schedule in the form of EXHIBIT A-L or EXHIBIT A-2 signed by Lessor and Lessee
and incorporating by reference the terms and provisions of this Master Lease.

         3. EQUIPMENT SCHEDULES. "Equipment Schedule" means an Equipment
Schedule in the form of EXHIBIT B-1 or EXHIBIT B-2 signed by Lessor and Lessee
and incorporating, by reference, the terms and provisions of this Master Lease
and the applicable Lease Line Schedule. Each Equipment Schedule shall constitute
a separate and independent lease (a "Lease"); the original of such Lease shall
consist of the signed Equipment Schedule and a copy of the Master Lease and
applicable Lease Line Schedule. Capitalized terms used, but not defined, in this
Master Lease have the meanings given to such terms in the applicable Lease Line
Schedule or Equipment Schedule, as the case may be.

         4. TERM AND RENTALS.

                  (a) ACCEPTANCE. The Lease shall commence with respect to
Equipment described on an Equipment Schedule upon the Acceptance Date. The
"Acceptance Date" shall be the date upon which Lessee executes a Delivery and
Acceptance Certificate in the form of EXHIBIT C.

                  (b) TERM AND PAYMENT OF RENT. The lease term for the Equipment
shall be the "Lease Term" set forth in the applicable Equipment Schedule which
shall commence on the "Commencement Date" (as defined in the applicable Lease
Line Schedule). Lessee agrees to pay to Lessor the "Rental Payments" for the
Lease Term, in the amounts and at the times set forth in the applicable
Equipment Schedule.

                  (c) INTERIM PERIOD. If an Acceptance Date does not fall on a
Commencement Date, then Lessee agrees to pay to Lessor "Interim Rent" for the
period commencing on the Acceptance Date through and including the day preceding
the Commencement Date (the "Interim Period"). The Interim Rent payment for the
Interim Period shall accrue at the "Interim Rate" (as defined in the applicable
Lease Line Schedule) and shall be due and payable in full on the Commencement

                  (d) LEASE TERMINATION. Lessee may terminate the Lease at the
expiration of the Lease Term or any renewal term (the "Lease Termination") by
submitting to Lessor a Notice of Election in the form of EXHIBIT D. If a

<PAGE>   2

Notice of Election is not submitted by Lessee to Lessor during the "Advance
Notice Period" (as defined in the Lease Line Schedule), then the Lease Term or
any renewal Term will be automatically extended for an additional period equal
to the "Automatic Extension Period" (as defined in the Lease Line Schedule). The
Lease will continue to automatically extend until Lessee submits to Lessor a
Notice of Election. The Lease may only be terminated as expressly provided in
this Section, in the applicable Lease Line Schedule or in the applicable
Equipment Schedule. Lessee agrees to continue paying rent for the Equipment in
the amount of the Rental Payment set forth in the applicable Equipment Schedule
until the later of (i) the expiration of the Lease Term, any renewal term and
any Automatic Extension Period and (ii) either (A) the purchase option price is
paid pursuant to SECTION 6(A), or (B) a mutually agreed renewal of the Lease
takes effect pursuant to SECTION 6(B), or (C) the Equipment is returned in the
manner and condition prescribed in SECTION 6(C), in each case after delivery of
a Notice of Election.

                  (e) NET LEASE. Each Equipment Schedule shall be a net lease,
and Lessee's obligation to pay all rent and other sums thereunder shall be
absolute and unconditional, and shall not be subject to any abatement,
reduction, setoff, defense, counterclaims, interruption, deferment or
recoupment, for any reason whatsoever.

         5.       LATE FEE. Lessee shall pay a late charge on any rent payments
or other sums due hereunder which are past due, in the amount specified in the
applicable Lease Line Schedule, payable on demand. In addition, interest shall
accrue daily at the "Default Rate" (as defined in the Lease Line Schedule), or
if such rate exceeds the maximum rate allowed by law, then at such maximum rate,
and shall be payable on demand.

         6.       LEASE TERMINATION OPTIONS. Upon Lease Termination, Lessee will
have the option to purchase the Equipment or renew the term of the Lease as set
forth below. Lessee shall specify its election of a Lease Termination Option in
the Notice of Election.

         (a) PURCHASE OPTION. If Lessee exercises the option to purchase, then,
provided no Event of Default has occurred and is then continuing, Lessee shall
at the expiration of the Lease Term, renewal term or extension, as the case may
be, purchase the Equipment. The purchase price shall be the Equipment's then
fair market value ("FMV") or as may be otherwise provided in a particular Lease
Line Schedule. FMV, as applied to a purchase option, shall be determined by
Lessor based on the price a willing buyer would pay and a willing seller would
accept (neither buyer nor seller being under compulsion to act) for the
Equipment as installed and in use, giving due consideration to its condition,
utility, revenue-producing capability, and replacement costs. If Lessee fails to
agree with Lessor's good faith determination of the FMV, Lessee shall
nevertheless pay Lessor's invoice and provide Lessor with a written request for
a determination of the FMV with or prior to such payment. Within ten (10) days
after such request Lessor and Lessee shall agree on an appraiser to determine
the FMV or, lacking such agreement, shall each tender the name of an appraiser.
The appraiser(s) shall, within thirty (30) days, either agree on the FMV or
select a third appraiser, to form a committee to determine the FMV.
Determination by the appraiser(s) shall be final and binding on both parties.
Within fifteen (15) days after such determination, Lessor shall refund any
excess received over the FMV, and/or Lessee shall pay any additional amount of
the FMV above the amount previously paid. Each party shall bear the fees and
expenses of any appraiser which it names and share equally the fees and expenses
of any appraiser(s) jointly selected. If the appraised FMV is within 5% of the
amount invoiced by Lessor, then Lessee shall pay all appraiser fees and
expenses. The purchase option price shall be paid not later than the last day of
the Lease Term.

         (b) RENEWAL. If Lessee exercises the option to renew this Lease, such
renewal shall be upon the terms and conditions of this Master Lease and the
applicable Lease Line Schedule, for a rental period and rental amount to be
agreed upon by Lessee and Lessor.

         7.       USE; MAINTENANCE.

                  (a) Lessee, at its expense, shall make all necessary site
preparations and cause the Equipment to be operated in accordance with any
applicable operating manuals and manufacturer's instructions. Notwithstanding

<PAGE>   3

transfer or assignment by Lessor and provided Lessee is not in default
hereunder, Lessee shall have the right to quietly possess and use the Equipment
as provided herein without interference by Lessor, its assigns or any other
third party claiming through or under Lessor.

                  (b) Lessee shall effect and bear the expense of all necessary
repair, maintenance, operation and replacements required to be made to maintain
the Equipment in good condition, reasonable wear and tear excepted, and to
comply with all domestic and international laws to which the use and operation
of the Equipment may be or become subject. All replacement Equipment and parts
furnished in connection with such maintenance or repair shall immediately become
the property of Lessor and part of the Equipment for all purposes hereof. All
such maintenance, repair and replacement sen ices shall be immediately paid for
and discharged by Lessee with the result that no lien under any applicable laws,
will attach to the Equipment as a result of the performance of such services or
the provision of any such material, except mechanic's liens not based on
delinquent payments which the Lessee may contest in good faith.

         8.       INSURANCE. Lessee shall obtain and maintain for the Lease Term
(and any renewal term or extension), at its own expense, (a) "all risk"
insurance against loss or damage to the Equipment, (b) commercial general
liability insurance (including contractual liability, products liability and
completed operations coverage) reasonably satisfactory to Lessor, and (c) such
other insurance against such other risks of loss and with such terms, as shall
in each case be reasonably satisfactory to or reasonably required by Lessor (as
to carriers, amounts and otherwise). The amount of the "all risk" insurance
shall be greater than or equal to the Stipulated Loss Value (as defined in
Section 9 below) of all Equipment outstanding under the Lease Line Schedules and
must otherwise be reasonably satisfactory to Lessor as of each anniversary date
of this Lease. Any increase in the amount of such insurance coverage reasonably
requested by Lessor shall be put into effect on the next succeeding renewal date
of such insurance.

         Each "all risk" policy shall: (i) name Lessor as sole loss payee with
respect lo the Equipment, (ii) provide for each insurer's waiver of its right of
subrogation against Lessor and Lessee, and (iii) shall waive set-off,
counterclaim or offset against Lessor.

         Each liability policy shall name Lessor as an additional insured and
provide that such insurance shall have cross-liability and severability of
interest endorsements (which shall not increase the aggregate policy limits of
Lessee's insurance).

         All insurance policies shall provide that Lessee's insurance shall be
primary without a right of contribution of Lessor's insurance, if any, or any
obligation on the part of Lessor to pay premiums of Lessee! and shall contain a
clause requiring the insurer to give Lessor at least 30 days' prior written
notice of its cancellation (other than cancellation for non-payment for which 10
days' notice shall be sufficient. Lessee shall on or prior to the date of the
first effective Equipment Schedule and prior to each policy renewal, furnish to
Lessor certificates of insurance or other evidence satisfactory to Lessor that
such insurance coverage is in effect. Lessee further agrees to give Lessor
prompt notice of any damage to, or loss of, the Equipment, or any part thereof.

         9.       LOSS OR DAMAGE. If any items of Equipment shall become lost,
stolen, destroyed, or damaged beyond repair for any reason, or in the event of
condemnation, confiscation, seizure or requisition of title to or use of such
items (collectively, an "Event of Loss"), Lessee shall promptly pay to Lessor
the applicable Stipulated Loss Value of the Equipment subject to the Event of
Loss. Upon payment by Lessee of the Stipulated Loss Value, Lessor will transfer
of Lessor's right, title and interest, if any, in such items of Equipment. The
"Stipulated Loss Value" payable by Lessee under this Lease shall be an amount
equal to the product of (a) Lessor's Cost of the affected Equipment and (b) the
percentage set forth in the table attached to the applicable Lease Line Schedule
as Annex A opposite the Rental Payment number next following the Event of Loss.
Stipulated Loss Values and Rental Payments shall not be prorated.

                  (a) TITLE. Lessor and Lessee confirm their intent that title

exclusively. If requested by Lessor, Lessee will affix plates or markings on the
Equipment and on any operating manuals and manufacturer's instructions
indicating the interests of Lessor and its assigns therein, and Lessee will not
allow any other indicia of ownership or other interest in the Equipment to be
placed on the Equipment. Lessee shall not sell, assign, grant a security
interest in, sublet, pledge, hypothecate or otherwise encumber or suffer a lien
upon or against this Lease or the Equipment.

                  (b) INSPECTION. Lessor (through any of its officers, employees
or agents) shall have the right to inspect the Equipment during regular business
hours, with reasonable notice, and in compliance with Lessee's reasonable
security procedures; provided, that such inspections will be conducted no more
often than every six (6) months unless an Event of Default, or event which, with
notice or lapse of time or both, would become an Event of Default, has occurred
and is continuing.

                  (c) LOCATION. In the case of Equipment other than mobile
Equipment, Lessee may move such Equipment from the installation address shown on
the Equipment Schedule (or any other location for which Lessee has complied with
this provision) only if (i) the new location is within the continental United
States, and (ii) Lessee gives prior written notice of the relocation and
provides UCC-I financing statements, landlord waivers or such other
documentation as Lessor reasonably requests to protect its interest in the
Equipment. In the case of mobile equipment (including, without limitation,
lap-top computers), Lessee agrees to obtain from the person using such mobile
Equipment and deliver to Lessor, an Acknowledgment in the form of EXHIBIT F.

                  (d) Lessee shall keep copies of all operating manuals and

the Lease Line Schedules and each Equipment Schedule and the performance by

without limitation, interest and penalties) of any nature imposed upon or in any
way relating to Lessor, Lessee, any item of Equipment or this Lease, except
federal, state and local taxes on or measured by Lessor's net income (other than
any such tax which is in substitution for or relieves Lessee from the payment of
taxes it would otherwise be obligated to pay to or reimburse Lessor for as
herein provided). Lessee shall at its expense file when due with the appropriate
authorities any and all tax and similar returns and reports required to be filed
with respect thereto or, if requested by Lessor, notify Lessor of all such

depreciation deductions and interest deductions with respect to any debts
incurred to finance the purchase of the Equipment. If, as a result of any acts,
omissions or misrepresentations by Lessee, Lessor's projected after-tax economic
return resulting from ownership and lease of the Equipment is reduced, then
Lessee's Rental Payments shall be increased in an amount (based on Lessor's
reasonable calculations) sufficient to provide the same net after-tax economic
return as if such acts or omissions had not occurred. Appropriate increases
shall also be made in the applicable Stipulated Loss Values for this Lease. In
the event the Equipment is sold by Lessor to another party, the net after-tax
economic returns considered shall be those of such other party.

         15.      EQUIPMENT WARRANTIES. Lessee acknowledges that (i) Lessee has
selected the supplier of the Equipment, (ii) Lessor acquired the goods or the
right to possession and use of the goods in connection with the Lease, and (iii)

related to the Equipment. Lessor assigns to Lessee, for and during the Lease
Term, any warranty on the Equipment provided by the supplier. Lessor and Lessee
agree that all limitations on remedies and liability contained in this Lease
represent a reasonable allocation of risks that is part of the fundamental
bargain between the parties.

         16.      EVENTS OF DEFAULT. An Event of Default shall occur if Lessee
(i) fails to pay any Rental Payment or other payment required under the Lease
when due and such failure continues for a period of five (5) days after written
notice from Lessor; or (ii) fails to perform or observe any other covenant,
condition or agreement to be performed or observed by it or breaches any
provision contained in the Lease or in any other document furnished to Lessor in
connection herewith, and such failure or breach continues for a period of thirty
(30) days after written notice from Lessor; or (iii) without Lessor's consent,
attempts to assign this Lease or sell, transfer, encumber, part with possession,
or sublet any item of Equipment; or (iv) makes any representation or warranty

sixty (60) days. Any Event of Default shall be deemed material and a substantial

or the Lease Line Schedule, upon notice to Lessee;

                  (b) recover any accrued and unpaid Rental Payments and other
amounts which are due and owing under the Leases so canceled on the Rental
Payment Date immediately preceding the date on which Lessor obtains possession
of the Equipment (or such earlier date as judgment is entered in favor of
Lessor) (the "Determination Date"), plus interest at the Default Rate;

                  (c) with or without canceling this Lease, recover (i) such
Stipulated Loss Value as of the Rental Payment Date immediately preceding the

remedy referred to in this Section is intended to be exclusive. but each shall

MASTER EQUIPMENT LEASE AGREEMENT NO.___, dated January 1, 1996 ("Master Lease"),
                                 by and between
   MMC/GATX PARTNERSHIP NO. I, a California general partnership("Lessor") and
          3D/FX INTERACTIVE, INC., a California corporation ("Lessee").

(All capitalized terms not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings
given to such terms in the Master Lease.)

IN CONSIDERATION of the mutual covenants contained herein, the parties agree as

         LEASE LINE. The total Lessor's Cost of all units of Equipment under all
Equipment Schedules pursuant to Lease Line Schedule No. 01 and 02, both dated
March 31, 1995, to Master Equipment Lease Agreement No. ___, dated January 1,
1996, shall not exceed $l,000,000.00 (the "Commitment"). "Lessor's Cost" means,
with respect to a unit of Equipment, the total cost to Lessor of purchasing such
unit, as indicated on the applicable Equipment Schedule. Lessor's obligation to
fund Equipment Schedules under the Commitment shall terminate on December 31,
1996 (the "Commitment Termination Date"). The minimum Lessor's Cost for each
Delivery & Acceptance Certificate shall be $10,000.00. There shall be no more
than one Equipment Schedule in any month.

         RENTAL FACTOR. The Rental Factor for each Equipment Schedule will be
based upon an implicit interest rate equal to the prime lending rate as quoted
in The Wall Street Journal ten business days prior to the Commencement Date for
such Equipment Schedule (the "Prime Rate") plus 200 basis points. If on such
date the Prime Rate is other than 8.5%, then the Rental Factor for that
Equipment Schedule will be adjusted upward or downward basis point for basis
point to maintain an implicit interest rate equal to the Prime Rate plus 200
basis points. Once the Lease Term commences for any Equipment Schedule, there
will be no further adjustments to the Rental Factor for such Equipment Schedule.
The Rental Payment under a particular Equipment Schedule shall be an amount
equal to the product of (a) the Rental Factor and (b) the aggregate Lessor's
Cost of Equipment subject to such Equipment Schedule.

         INTERIM RATE. The Interim Rate used to calculate the daily Interim Rent
shall be equal to the Rental Factor for each Equipment Schedule divided by
thirty (30). The Interim Period as defined in the Master Lease shall be modified
to start on the date the Equipment is delivered to and accepted by the Lessee
and the Lessor's Cost of Equipment is advanced by Lessor.

         ADVANCE RENT. Upon execution of each Summary Equipment Schedule under
this Lease Line Schedule, Lessee shall pay to Lessor advance rent equal to the
product of the Lessor's Cost and the Rental Factor ("Advance Rent"), to be
applied toward the last Rental Payment due from Lessee to Lessor under each
Equipment Schedule.

         EXPENSES. Lessee agrees to reimburse Lessor for a total of up to
Fifteen Hundred Dollars ($1,500.00) of expenses incurred in connection with the
negotiation and documentation of this transaction, promptly upon receipt of an
invoice together with appropriate back-up.

         ELIGIBLE EQUIPMENT. All equipment financed under an Equipment Schedule
shall be Eligible Equipment. "Eligible Equipment" means the following types of
equipment to the extent acceptable to Lessor:

and other equipment as mutually agreed between Lessee and Lessor, together with
all replacements, parts, cables. repairs, additions and accessories incorporated
therein or affixed thereto and all operating manuals and manufacturer's
instructions (collectively hereinafter called the "Equipment"). Such
replacements, parts, cables, repairs, additions and accessories shall (whether
or not purchased by Lessor) be

considered part of the Equipment for all purposes and, when installed in or
attached to the Equipment (unless otherwise agreed), be or become the property
of the Lessor except such external, stand-alone accessories acquired by Lessee
which may be removed without damage to the equipment which shall be the property
of the Lessee. Except as otherwise specifically provided or the context so
requires, the term "Equipment" includes operating system or other bundled
software which is delivered on or with the Equipment or is included on the
Equipment Schedules.

         COMMENCEMENT DATE. The "Commencement Date" for each Equipment Schedule
shall be the first day of the calendar month following the Acceptance Date for
the items of Equipment subject to such Equipment Schedule. If the Acceptance
Date is the first day of a calendar month, then the Commencement Date shall be
the Acceptance Date.

         LEASE TERMINATION OPTIONS. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in
Section 6 of the Master Lease, upon Lease Termination (as defined in the Master
Lease), Lessee will have, with respect to all but not less than all of the
Equipment governed by this Lease Line Schedule, the option to (a) purchase the
Equipment from Lessor for the lesser of its Fair Market Value or fifteen percent
(15% ) of the Lessor's Cost or (b) renew the Lease.

         ADVANCE NOTICE PERIOD. The "Advance Notice Period" shall be at least
ninety (90) days, but not more than 180 days, prior to Lease Termination (as
defined in the Master Lease) of Equipment Schedule No. 1 to this Lease Line

equal three (3) months and affects each Equipment Schedule under this Lease Line

than products liability coverage and completed operations insurance) required
under the Master Lease shall be at least $1,000,000 per occurrence. The amount
of the products liability and completed operations insurance under the Master
Lease shall be at least $1,000,000 per occurrence; provided however, that Lessee
shall not be required to obtain products liability and completed operations
insurance until the occurrence of the first shipment of a product to a customer.
