Typhoon is a manufacturer that is known to sell cheap pc equipment and accessories like mice, speakers or USB cards. In the late nineties until around 2001 (I think) they also sold entry level 3D cards like this 3dfx Banshee or Geforce 2MX cards for example. This card looks looks like the Guillemot Maxi Gamer Phoenix (old logo) minus the connectors on the top left and a different PCB print - so I think it was manufactured by Guillemot for Typhoon.
