Trident partnered with motherboard chipset suppliers several times to integrate its graphics technology into a motherboard chipset i. 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.
Although Trident enjoyed some success with its 3DImage and Blade3D product-lines, the entry of Intel into PC graphics signalled the end of the bottom-end, 944 market.
In the mids, the company briefly caught up with its main competition: As the PC graphics market frident 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 continued its strategy of selling modestly performing chips at compelling price points.
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 tridebt chip.
