The Trident is targeted at a user who is looking for a decent 2D AGP card, for a more than decent price. Unreal at default setting attacks your eyes with vibrant noise colored patterns replacing original textures because of broken mip-mapping. The chip hardly determines which pixel of texture goes to which pixel on screen. Ever since launch of their ubiquitous TVGA they had a reputation of rather slow but cheap graphics. The 3DImage erased all previous efforts and Trident itself refers to it as their first 3D accelerator. 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. Last driver I found is version compatible with DirectX6 and it does not offer any fancy control panels.

But it seems no board maker picked the chip, despite good relations with several OEMs which could use such product.

Yet in the end Trident looses in image quality big time. It should also support subpixel positioning, which corrects errors that cause a vibrating effect in a texture’s surface of a moving object. The whole pipeline should be able to sustain 1.

The relieves the CPU of setup tasks with its own setup visplay offering 1. Last driver I found is version compatible with DirectX6 and it does not offer any fancy control panels.

Trident 2D AGP Accelerator

Normally it would be disqualified from any comparison, but I am attracted to failures and went exactly after such experience with this project. Yes x Video Playback: The card itself features a number of electrolytic capacitors, carefully positioned around key-contact points, and the card is no longer than a standard Riva card. Sales of 2D discrete products were still rising rapidly. 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 950 you’re prepared to handle.


There are only a few total losses in Direct3d.

Trident 9750 2D AGP Accelerator

Trident may have the answer Video Card Specifications Interface: 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 dissplay 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 Of course there are the Matrox Millenniums and the Tseng Labs cards out there Dksplay Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.

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. Trident may have the xisplay. The Test Index The Test.

But at least I got more results even if the screenshot function does not work. 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.


PCI video card, what are you to do? Anyway Trident continued improving T3D architecture and reduce costs through higher integration. The card 3 for AGP bus, Trident made sure their chips will be featured on AGP from day one of the bus, but only electrically compatible. The doesn’t stop at i,age 2D features alone, it also features a TV-output Looks like is broken inside and users are left with crude approximations. Ever since launch of their ubiquitous TVGA they had a reputation of rather slow but cheap graphics.


Performance wise, the Trident does its job, nothing more, nothing less, you get much more than idsplay pay for with this card, however don’t expect it to turn heads as you benchmark the board against the competition.

The first warning sign is low color precision of Gouraud shading without option of dithering.

The T3D chip integrated Tridents already established true color 2d and video acceleration with 64 bit 3d rasterization and z-buffering. Lightmapping on 3DImage is a disastrous display of texture Z-fighting.

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. As you will see the is very good in enhancing such errors. The is a very well designed card, approaching it from an engineering point of view. Turning it off sacrifices sky, but at least lightning is fixed, still many artifacts remains though.

Did the board manufacturers finally jump after Trident’s 3D?
