Long way to the 3DImage In the middle of the nineties Trident Microsystems was very well known maker of 2d accelerators.


Ever since launch of their ubiquitous TVGA they had a reputation of rather slow but cheap graphics. With advent of PC 3d market the company stepped up and designed their first 3d architecture as early as of The T3D chip integrated Tridents already TRIDENT 3DImage975 true color 2d and video acceleration with 64 bit 3d rasterization and z-buffering.

It was supposed to be performance flagship. Instead of games Trident was aiming at CAD and engineering workstations where texturing was not yet necessary. But it seems no board maker picked the chip, despite good relations with several OEMs which could use such product. Anyway Trident continued improving T3D architecture and reduce TRIDENT 3DImage975 through higher integration. It was a complete solution ready for Direct3D with perspective-correct texture mapping and filtering.


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. Which cards used the T3D? Any ProVidia out there? I don't know any. But Trident was on a roll and next quarter reveaed yet another 3d enabled cores- ProVidia for PC and power-gated Cyber for notebooks. Did the board manufacturers TRIDENT 3DImage975 jump after Trident's 3D? I still cannot find any products implementing them despite announced contracts. Thus Trident later referred to Cyber based on the as their first 3d mobile chip. Sales of 2D discrete products were still rising rapidly. But it took fourth attempt to enter the more promising 3D market- the infamous 3DImage The card Not exactly a card collectors dream about getting with the whole package.


Those are clocked at 55 TRIDENT 3DImage975 and have no overclocking headroom at all. 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 TRIDENT 3DImage975 any fancy control panels. Architecture The 3DImage erased all previous efforts and Trident itself refers to it as their first 3D accelerator. It entered the market in springrather late compared with announcements.

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 TRIDENT 3DImage975 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 errors that cause a vibrating effect in a texture's TRIDENT 3DImage975 of a moving object. As you will see the is very good in enhancing such errors. The first warning sign is TRIDENT 3DImage975 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 TRIDENT 3DImage975 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 crashes 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. TRIDENT 3DImage975

Given how slow it runs I think it TRIDENT 3DImage975 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 lies in perspective problem and broken texturing poisoning all games. Allow me to demonstrate on those screenshots from Lands of Lore 2. This is what Trident calls second generation 3d accelerator. TRIDENT 3DImage975
