And this happens in more games. It was supposed to be performance flagship. But somehow they forgot to mention those numbers came from 8 bit colors, in standard 16 bit the performance is halved. Those are clocked at 55 MHz and have no overclocking headroom at all. Expendable crashes to desktop, Ultimate Race Pro is excluded because of too much corruption, Warbirds result is missing because renders only cockpit. In blending stages substractive operation is missing, taking down further image quality.

One of the major problems with Trident’s older PCI video cards was that the driver support was horrible, and although the support hasn’t really increased for theyou can rest assured that the bundled drivers work perfectly with Windows 95, and they don’t seem to have any problems with Windows Any ProVidia out there? I don’t know any. Doesn’t it seem as if you’re doomed to buy an expensive 3D accelerator if you’re looking for a decent AGP video card?

Which cards used the T3D? The is a very well designed card, approaching it from an engineering point of view. Trident may have the answer Video Card Specifications Interface: Yet in the end 3dimagr looses in image quality big time. Installing the Trident card is much like installing some RAM, it can be an easy process if you do it properly, otherwise it can cause you more frustration than you’re prepared to handle.

If this is indication what earlier 3d designs of Trident were doing, then it is clear why they did not make it to the market. Normally it would be disqualified from any comparison, but I am attracted to failures and went exactly after such experience with this project. It was supposed to be performance flagship. It entered the market in springrather late compared with announcements.

But there are cards with Cyber DVD chip intended for laptops. I still cannot find any products implementing them despite announced contracts. The showed absolutely no problems what-so-ever with this type of an installation, however for testing purposes the hard drive was given a clean format and the Trident drivers were installed from scratch without the presence of any previous drivers.
Last driver I found is version compatible with DirectX6 and it does not offer any fancy control panels. Ever since launch of their ubiquitous TVGA they had a reputation of rather slow but cheap graphics.
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. To get closer to software developers Trident established its “Third Dimension” 970 that provided them with evaluation T3D boards, documentation and tools for porting to the technology.
Sales 3dkmage 2D discrete products were still rising rapidly. Such potent triangle setup engine should have been main differentiator of 3DImage in the entry level market. Take a look at those point sampled texels, drawing a straight line is a tough job for this texturing engine.

Anyway Trident continued improving T3D architecture and reduce costs through higher integration. In blending stages substractive operation is missing, taking down further image quality. Instead of games Trident was aiming at CAD and engineering workstations where texturing was not yet necessary.
But Trident was on a roll and next quarter reveaed yet another 3d enabled cores- ProVidia for PC and power-gated Cyber for notebooks. But it seems no board maker picked the chip, 3dimgae good relations with several OEMs which could use such product. There are only a few total losses in Direct3d. Those are clocked at 55 MHz and have no overclocking headroom at all.
The T3D chip integrated Tridents already established true color 2d and video acceleration with 64 bit 3d rasterization and z-buffering. Thus Trident later referred to Cyber based on the as their first 3d mobile chip.
