Anyway Trident continued improving T3D architecture and reduce costs through higher integration. There are only a few total losses in Direct3d. The whole pipeline should be able to sustain 1. Yes x Such potent triangle setup engine should have been main differentiator of 3DImage in the entry level market.

The Trident is targeted at a user who is looking for a decent 2D AGP card, for a more than decent price. Yes x Basically, with thejust plug it in, install the drivers, and you’ll be on your way. Which cards used the T3D? But it gets worse, click on 33dimage image to see same wall bilineary filtered. Trident supports bilinear and half speed trilinear 97550 filter, but it works only when it feels like it and causes heavier artifacts.

But at least I got more results even if the screenshot function does not work. Such potent triangle setup engine should have been main differentiator of 3DImage in the entry level market. But it took fourth attempt to enter the more promising 3D market- the infamous 3DImage The card is for AGP bus, Trident made sure their chips will be featured on AGP from day one of the bus, but only electrically compatible. Last driver I found is version compatible with DirectX6 and it does not offer any fancy control panels.


Broken 3d perspective, texturing, missing blending modes, buggy mip mapping and low performance – Trident could have wait some more, but thanks for the ride. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. And this happens in more games.

Yet in the end Trident looses in image quality big time. The relieves the CPU of setup tasks with its own setup engine offering 1. Both exhibit about the same performance, but of course specific texture artifacts appears 3dmage non pure Quake game like Sin is corrupted way too much. Only bit Z and image buffers are supported.

Simple flat surface is broken into random planes floating along as the camera moves. But somehow they forgot to mention those numbers came from 8 bit colors, in standard 16 bit the performance is halved. The is based on Trident’s own proprietary 3DImage Chipset, and as the name implies it does support some 3D acceleration about as much as any generic “3D-accelerator” does.

In the middle of the 950 Trident Microsystems was very well known maker of 2d accelerators. The whole pipeline should be able to sustain 1. Starting the system up for the first time you’ll notice the classic Trident BIOS splash-screen, displaying information about the 2MB or 4MB card depending on which one you picked up. Given how slow it runs I think it is safe to include the result.

Expendable crashes to desktop, Ultimate Race Pro is excluded because of too much corruption, Warbirds result is missing because renders only cockpit.

To get closer to software developers Trident established its “Third Dimension” program that provided them with evaluation T3D boards, documentation and tools for porting to the technology. Reaching performance no-where near that of the Millennium II or Riva cards, the Trident is probably best fit as a cheap solution to use with a 3D-only accelerator, such as the Voodoo2.

But Trident was on a roll and next quarter reveaed yet another 3d enabled cores- ProVidia for PC and power-gated Cyber for notebooks. The Test Index The Test.
