The rapid introduction of 3D graphics caught many graphics suppliers off guard, including Trident.

Meanwhile, in the laptop market, Trident was an early pioneer of embedded DRAMa TRIDENT Graphic 3DImage9850 manufacturing technique which combines a graphics-controller and framebuffer memory on a single chip. The resulting combo-chip saved precious board-space by TRIDENT Graphic 3DImage9850 several RAM chips normally required for framebuffer storage as well as providing other advantages, offset by a higher manufacturing cost-per-bit. In this market it competed with NeoMagic. I found another volatility: What you see on the first picture are horrible texture combine artifacts at default setting.

These almost go away when Z-buffering is disabled, which you can see after clicking on that image. By the way speed gain was quite small. Same thing happens with all newer games using lightmapping, so depth accuracy may be another area where Trident cut corners too short.

It seems slower cards would equal performance in both average and minimal framerates, but still with much superior gaming experience. This is still insufficient to change the overall picture. Conclusion If only speed was of concern I could have just say showed some reasonable framerates for its price. Trident however did not deliver usable 3d accelerator in the form of 3DImage. These secured market share TRIDENT Graphic 3DImage9850 the time, yet it is obvious why they also started the downfall of Trident. Both and chips produced some of the worst 3d rendered images in a year when the market as a whole was maturing. Soon Trident's desktop products were able to sell only at dirt cheap prices and even notebook market was more and more insecure.

Throughout Trident was silent, perhaps jumping into the TRIDENT Graphic 3DImage9850 of Microsoft's Talisman. Finally their new 3d chip was ready in early and unlike 3DImage it fully delivered on its promises.

While being cheap the Blade 3D was high quality 2D and 3D TRIDENT Graphic 3DImage9850 with full DirectX 6 compliance and sufficient performance for x gaming. The relieves the CPU of setup tasks with its own setup engine offering 1. Such potent triangle setup engine should have been main differentiator of 3DImage in the entry level market. It is realized by stackable DSP-based circuit, the integrates four of them.

The whole pipeline should be able to sustain 1. But somehow they forgot to mention those numbers came from 8 bit colors, in standard 16 bit the performance is halved. It should also support subpixel positioning, which corrects TRIDENT Graphic 3DImage9850 that cause a vibrating effect in a texture's surface of a moving object. As you will see the is very good in enhancing such errors.

TRIDENT Graphic 3DImage9850 The first warning sign is low color precision of Gouraud shading without option of dithering. In blending stages substractive operation is missing, taking down further image quality. Only bit Z and image buffers are supported. But there are cards with Cyber DVD chip intended for laptops. Experience Trident did not deliver anything for OpenGL, but the is quite compatible with wrappers of S3 and Chromatic.

Both exhibit about the same performance, but of course specific texture artifacts appears and non pure Quake game like Sin is corrupted way too much. But at least I got more results even if the screenshot function does not work. There are only a few total losses in Direct3d. Expendable TRIDENT Graphic 3DImage9850 to desktop, Ultimate Race Pro is excluded because of too much corruption, Warbirds result is missing because renders only cockpit.

Unreal at default setting attacks your eyes with vibrant noise colored patterns replacing original textures because of broken mip-mapping. Turning it off sacrifices sky, but at least lightning is fixed, still many artifacts remains though. Given how slow it runs I think it is safe to include the result. Yet in the end Trident looses in image quality big time. While compatibility of is not bad, the main problem TRIDENT Graphic 3DImage9850 in perspective problem and broken texturing poisoning all games. In the middle of the nineties Trident Microsystems was very well known maker of 2d TVGA they had a reputation of rather TRIDENT Graphic 3DImage9850 but cheap graphics.


Trident like many others was in a race for first full AGP implementation. the press and too-good-to-be-true XP4 was not delivered, the story of Trident graphics.
