It was essentially only updated Savage done right and was recalled at the last moment in April Well the answer is rather negative, reality is much harsher than exposed features. For more screenshots see the Trio3D gallery. Even 3DMark runs – somewhat. It was an adequate budget 3D chip, but corporate world might respond better to continuation of Trio line rather than product clearly made for games. Select type of offense:

S3 came out of the closet and pulled back multiplicative alpha blending support that first Trio3D was failing in and old Virge could not do either.

Unreal runs, but with proper lighting Trio3D gives up on texturing, so I tested flat shaded. Similar color problems are ruining Formula 1 and smaller troubles are seen in Falcon 4. Thank You for Submitting Your Review,!

This long window was to be filled with yet another respin of S3d architecture. Click on the following links for the driver package readme info: However, much needed performance enhancements are nowhere to be found.
Chrome series continued with less ttrio3d chips, their few highlights being low power consumption and HTPC value. Trip3d is the only technical deficiency of last “decelerator” incarnation. There is a command interface, increasing bus efficiency and support for 8 MB of memory but neither of those can really help.
Experience Trio3D fixed Lens Flares, but added new issues. Sexually explicit or offensive language. Unreal can be rendered with proper lighting, inevitably very slow and certainly with plenty of bugs left, but to get so much out of such ancient architecture is kind of admirable. The addition of subtractive blending is nice but insufficient.
That is rather cosmetic improvement since most of 2X cards carry 8 MB of memory, more than enough for such anemic architecture. Outside of 3d games Trio3Ds did their job and S3 was frio3d significant market share thanks to them.
At this low point VIA, big partner still in need of integrated graphics, moved in for acquisition. This considered 2X with MHz memory is for me the most powerful Virge based card.
There are actually new features, which is surprising given target consumer. Advertisements or commercial links.

Even 3DMark runs – somewhat. Since you’ve already submitted a review for this product, this submission will be added as an update to your original review. S3 went through restructuring which probably delayed following Savage XP chip too much. HUD problems of Formula 1, bilinear filtering in Daytona USA is on strike, most of 2D art in Populous is invisible, broken reflection map and texture transparency in Monster Truck Madness 2, broken transparency in Motoracer 2, corrupted ground textures in Mechwarrior 2, Shogo suffers from disappearing textures, world texturing in Thief is still impossible.

Many mistakes of older Virge are repeated: The posting of advertisements, profanity, or personal attacks is prohibited. Next high performance architecture was coming on schedule and that was DeltaChrome S8. AGP 2x is supported with texturing from system memory. Drivers for 2X are distinctively different and surprisingly compatible with some modern 3d programs.
Performance Finally how fast are those cards?
Trio3D Trio3D offered great 2D and video acceleration with it’s new bit engine. Fortunately, there were significant features added to stay in touch with the rapid development. However bad news for retro gamers is lower compatibility with S3d titles.
