The is a very well designed card, approaching it from an engineering point of view. Trident may have the answer Video Card Specifications Interface: Log in Don’t have an account?

Allow me to demonstrate on those screenshots from Lands of Lore 2. Instead of games Trident was aiming at CAD and engineering workstations where texturing was not yet necessary. Click here to find lowest prices on this product.

Trident 9750 2D AGP Accelerator

Those are clocked at 55 MHz and have no overclocking headroom at all. Thus Trident later referred to Cyber based on the as their first 3d mobile chip. Did the board manufacturers finally jump after Trident’s 3D?

The relieves the CPU of setup tasks with its own setup engine offering 1. Only bit Z and image buffers are supported. Simple flat surface is broken 970 random planes floating along as the camera moves. Unreal at default setting attacks your eyes with vibrant noise colored patterns replacing original textures because of broken mip-mapping.

I don’t know any. 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. Last driver I found is version compatible with DirectX6 and it does not offer any fancy control panels. Sales of 2D discrete products were still rising rapidly. Any ProVidia out there? The doesn’t stop at its 2D features alone, it also features a TV-output Make a few turns and gives up on filtering again.


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.

The whole pipeline should be able to sustain 1. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. There are some out there that aren’t gamers, and that don’t care about the ability to perform tri-linear filtering, they just want an economically priced AGP video displqy that can handle the most basic 2D applications. As you will see the is very good in umage such 3. Doesn’t it seem as if you’re doomed to buy an expensive 3D accelerator if iamge looking for a decent AGP video card?

Of course there are the Matrox Millenniums and the Tseng Labs cards out there But Trident was on a roll and next quarter reveaed yet another 3d enabled cores- ProVidia for PC and power-gated Cyber for ikage. Given how slow it runs I think it is safe to include the result.

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. Looks like is broken inside and users are left with crude approximations. In blending stages substractive operation is missing, taking down further image quality.

But somehow they forgot to mention those numbers came from 8 bit colors, in standard 16 bit the performance is halved. Take a look at those point sampled texels, drawing a straight line is a tough job for this texturing engine.


Yes x There are only a few total losses in Direct3d. Visually 3DImage is in the territory of shame, between the chaos of AT3D and immature but working graphics chips of Such potent triangle setup engine should have been main differentiator of 3DImage in the entry level market. Broken 3d perspective, texturing, missing blending modes, buggy mip mapping and low performance – Trident could have wait some more, but thanks for the ride.
