Refers to the Intel 430 family of Pentium chipsets. The first in family, the 430FX, is called the Triton; the enhanced 430 HX is called Triton 2. The Triton chipset supports the PCI bus and was the first x86 chip to use EDO DRAM. The Triton 2 is one of the fastest Pentium chipsets, with support for multiple CPUs, pipelined burst SRAM cache, memory error checking and correction (ECC), 512 MB of memory, and caching of RAM over 64 MB. The 430VX, a third member of the family, supports USB and uses SDRAM. The VX model is sometimes called Triton-2 or Triton-3.

Short for True Flash File System TrueFFS is a technology patented by msystems (formerly M-Systems) for flash drive management. TrueFFS enables flash products to fully emulate hard disks when connected to the host processor.
An outline font technology developed jointly by Microsoft and Apple. Because TrueType support is built into all Windows and Macintosh operating systems, anyone using these operating systems can create documents using TrueType fonts. Since being introduced in 1991, TrueType has quickly become the dominant font technology for everyday use, and is even displacing PostScript in […]
