TRIDENT BLADE 3D DISPLAY DRIVER
In the mids, the company briefly caught up with its main competition: The rapid introduction of 3D graphics caught many graphics suppliers off guard, including Trident.
Meanwhile, in the laptop market, Trident was an early pioneer of embedded DRAMa semiconductor manufacturing technique which combines a graphics-controller and framebuffer memory on a single chip. The resulting combo-chip saved precious board-space by TRIDENT Blade 3D Display several RAM chips normally required for framebuffer storage as well as providing other advantages, offset by a higher manufacturing cost-per-bit.

The resulting combo-chip saved precious board-space by eliminating several RAM chips normally required for framebuffer storage as well as providing other advantages, offset by a higher manufacturing cost-per-bit. In this market it competed with NeoMagic.
The Test - Trident Blade 3D Preview
Although Trident enjoyed some success with its 3DImage and Blade3D product-lines, the entry of TRIDENT Blade 3D Display into PC graphics signalled the end of the bottom-end, graphics-chip market. But, as mentioned above, if all you want is 2D then pretty much any card will suit you, as long as you're not running a 21 inch or larger monitor. And if you are, then dropping a couple of hundred extra bucks on a video card is unlikely to bother you.
WinTune reported its performance in by16 bit colour as This puts it at roughly half, and roughly a quarter, of the speed of the high-spec V Ultra. Which is about four times the 's price, TRIDENT Blade 3D Display you'd blooming well want it to be faster. This will deliver Quake 2 framerates of 30 to 35 frames per second in by mode, 16 bit colour, if it's driven by a MHz Pentium-II class processor, like my overclocked Celeron, or like the super-fast off-the-shelf Celerons you can buy today.
Trident Blade 3D Preview
It'll only barely dip below 30 frames per second even when tortured by the famous Crusher demo. Crusher gives you a good idea of the worst-case-scenario multiplayer frame rate you'll get when everything starts happening at once - which is when a low frame rate will do you the most harm.
As a rule of thumb, 30 frames per second is the sweet spot; more is nice, but the TRIDENT Blade 3D Display between 20 and 30 frames per second is much more noticeable than the difference between 30 and In the Crusher demo, at by and 16 bit colour, the VideoAGP scored a frankly miserable 11 frames per second. For the far less demanding demo2. This isn't fast enough to be fun. Cut down to bythe scored a more respectable 19 and 28 frames per second, respectively; this means it's fine for single-player OpenGL or Direct3D games in byand not too bad for multiplayer.
Winding the resolution all the way down to by gave 40 frames per second in demo2, but only 23 for Crusher - not nearly enough TRIDENT Blade 3D Display to justify the chunky retro-DOOM look of the very low resolution. Overall This isn't a terrible graphics card, but it's competing with some very impressive superseded hardware that doesn't cost very much more.
The Jaton might be a cheap card, but it's not nasty; Jaton gear is always well made, against the hang-the-board-on-the-wall-and-throw-solder-at-it construction techniques apparently favoured TRIDENT Blade 3D Display some low cost video card makers. But, when you get right down to it, the VideoAGP is two-thirds the price of a card that's two to three times faster for 3D. So if you're after a budget gaming card, you should save your pennies for a cheap TNT. So you've got a $10 bill in your wallet, and you walk into a store looking to buy a T-shirt. An eager salesman approaches you and directs you.
In all tests, the Blade 3D remained quite competitive in comparison to the i, while keeping such advantages as full Super7 compatibility (for.
