What we do know is that Trident's XP4 will come in four flavours, a discrete notebook solution and three desktop solutions known as the "T1", "T2" and "T3". The GPU will be manufactured on a 0.13um process using copper interconnects and features an almost unbelievably low transistor count at 30 million.De overview vind je op 3DVelocity.com
We also know that Trident's maths don't quite add up. They're claiming 70% of the performance of the new ATi Radeon 9700 which based on current performance figures puts it on a par with NVIDIA's Ti4600 yet they're also claiming 80% of the performance of the Ti4600? Clearly we'll have to wait and see the actual hardware before we know for sure but if I had to make an educated guess I'd say we can expect Radeon8500 level performance which is still a good showing for a $100 DirectX 8.1 graphics card. I now simply hope Trident prove me wrong and exceed this with clever drivers and optimal use of what it now seems will be a tile based rendering engine.
