But it gets worse, click on the image to see same wall bilineary filtered. Which makes me think that quite big 4 kB of texture cache in the chip does not have enough logic next to it to do “full speed” bilinear interpolation.

3dimqge one to sell? As the PC graphics market shifted from simple framebuffer displays basic VGA color monitor and later multi-resolution SVGA output to more advanced 2D hardware acceleration such a BitBLT engine and color-space conversion not to be confused with 3D hardware-accelerationTrident 3dikage its strategy of selling modestly performing chips at compelling price points. I like the looks of this one. Ever since launch of their ubiquitous TVGA they had a reputation of rather slow but cheap graphics.



Original specs hinted improved triangle setup engine with float to fixed conversion performance of 1. Without that knowledge, one should conclude that unless the tested before was strongly bandwidth constrained, the chip frequency difference should be relatively same as memory.

Looks like is broken inside and users are left with crude approximations. The relieves the CPU of setup tasks with its own setup engine offering 1.

With advent of PC 3d market the company stepped up and designed their first 3d architecture as early as of Lightmapping on 3DImage is a disastrous display of texture Z-fighting. Trident says maximum memory interface speed is MHz so perhaps there are even faster clocked cards out there.

The chip was introduced together with as a higher performance alternative. These secured market share for the time, yet it is obvious why they also started the downfall of Trident. Soon Trident’s desktop products were able to sell only at dirt cheap prices and even notebook market was more and more insecure.

There are 1 items available. Simple flat surface is broken into random planes floating along as the camera moves. It seems slower cards would equal performance in both average and minimal framerates, but still with much superior gaming experience.

But it took fourth attempt to enter the more promising 3D market- the infamous 3DImage Init transformed itself into being a supplier of display processors for digital televisions primarily LCD TVs and achieved success starting fromat a time when the global LCD TV market started showing strong growth. The relieves the CPU of setup tasks with its own setup engine offering 1. Take a look at those point sampled texels, drawing a straight line is a tough job for this texturing engine. Smart Driver Polis drivers cannot be smart, you can.


Trident 3DImage Rev 5. Under new management, in May Trident completed the acquisition of selected assets of the frame rate converter FRCdemodulator and audio product lines from Micronas. The 3DImage erased all previous efforts and Trident itself refers to it as their first 3D accelerator.
