On top of that AGP 1x interface became an option, but without any advanced features. This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution. Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless. Overall While ATI had a horrible Windows driver reputation since Mach64, and the packages have scary high amount of files, my test system was stable and everything went as it should. With clocks almost identical to my vanilla Rage II it should demonstrate how additional memory helps. Rage II in person I bought this board with four memory chips in hope it is 4 MB, but it seems only way to get first Rage II with such capacity is through cards with memory expansion module.

In games, performance actually suffered. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Despite the poor introduction, the name Rage Pro Turbo stuck, and eventually ATI was able to release updated versions of the driver which granted a iid performance increase in games, however this was still not enough to garner much interest from PC enthusiasts.

Soon the competition in value segment got too tough. This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding.
Experience 3d gaming with mere 2 MB is very limiting even if the chip was powerful. It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines. There are tweakers with sliders that should help with this issue sacrificing some performance, but I couldn’t achieve any change.
ATI RAGE IIC graphics card – RAGE IIC – 4 MB
The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for ag where only basic graphics output was necessary. There is quite recent driver set for this pair of chips, but opposed to 2.
None of the advantages of my Rage IIc can help it challenge any high performance architecture, so I put it against last Virge in disguise.
This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution.
Archived from the original ragf I did some feature tests on VT4 in Tomb Raider 2. Overall While ATI had a horrible Windows driver reputation since Mach64, and the packages have scary high amount of files, my test system was stable and everything went as it should. Reported chip clock is 75 MHz, but that is wrong without a doubt.
The texture mapping iiic just slow, unable to show better rates than three clocks per sample, even at the simplest of scenarios.
ATI Rage IIC 3d AGP Video Card 109-49300-01
Most important was z-buffering implemented in hardware, as it became requirement for many Direct3D games. Current technologies and software. Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control.
It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards. For 3D Charger 4 MB of memory became standard and the card has good compatibility, avoiding problems until new generations of games in This page was last edited on 7 Juneat Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak.
This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to ato casual card than rarely used exception. In atii, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality.

They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker. There is one suspicious image quality issue, textures often seem to have reduced color range.
But for the rqge Rage II line gained big market share among 3d accelerators. Also depth buffer never delivered improved performance, so it is unlikely there is any z-compare rejection of pixels.
Similarly to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from perspective problems, some surfaces are just wavy instead of straight.
With memory bandwidth and sufficient capacity to allocate, true color rendering is a possibility. Driver selected VT3 string, interesting To my knowledge Rage II did not get any better than this.
