The processor was known for its well-performing bit color mode, but also its poorly dithered bit mode; strangely, the RAGE was not much faster in bit color despite the lower bandwidth requirements. Almost every version of Rage was used in mobile applications, but there were also some special versions of these chips which were optimized for this. It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control. All 3d primitives from points to quadrilaterals are supported. Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers.

As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor.


With clocks almost identical to my vanilla Rage II it should demonstrate how additional memory helps. Archived from the original on There is quite recent driver set for this pair of chips, but opposed to 2. Experience As you will see in the performance summary improvements in the 3d rag are not to be seen rxge real games.

Views Read Edit View history. Blending unit looks flexible enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at it.

Not because of 2cc of memory, this is true for all Rage II cards reviewed. The texture mapping is just slow, unable to show better rates than three clocks per sample, even at the simplest of scenarios. They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to ragge the Mobility moniker.


More promising feature could be texture compression technique with two to four times compression ratio, but by this ATi understood less exciting palletized textures. Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. Retrieved from ” https: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance drop.

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 visible performance increase 2v games, however this was still not enough to garner much interest from PC enthusiasts.

Thus the improvement over first Rage II comes down only to more memory. But for the time Rage II line gained big market share among 3d accelerators.

It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. Similarly to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from 33d problems, some surfaces are just wavy instead of straight. From now on Rage chips carried new A3D logo, to show how serious is the new trend.

This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding. Driver selected VT3 string, interesting Announced performance was 26 million perspectively correct texture mapped pixels per second. Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: Aside from the VR chip’s lower price-point, the main difference was that the former was a full bit design, while the VR, still a bit processor internally, used a bit external memory interface.


Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak. This page was last edited on 7 Juneat This time the architecture was definitely up to date with all of apg critical 3d features working. 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.

Almost every version of Rage was used in mobile applications, but there were also some special versions of these chips which were optimized for this. 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. Also depth buffer never delivered improved performance, so it is unlikely there is any z-compare rejection of pixels.

The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand. Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless. Considering full availability in Christmas season such figure was far from exciting. This is not much of surprise from a chip without texture caching, still ragw this optimization in synthetic tests the performance drop of bilinear filtering remains rather big.
