This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. Here are some comparison shots viewtopic. The quality setting is a bit slower. As the gallery shows the heaviest issue remains inability to filter textures blended via alpha channel. Texturing engine can now enjoy 4 kB cache, drastically reducing bandwidth demands of interpolation and enabling single pass free trilinear filtering.

ATI dragged this filter into next gen Rage as well and fortunately for them almost nobody noticed. They perform slightly better rae 32 bit color and have nicer image quality better colors on LCD monitors, better contrast on CRTs.

I am pretty sure it is either a cut down Rage or Rage Pro. Considering long life time of the Rage Pro architecture, this should not have happened and caused image quality issues in years when such omission was no longer tolerable. The 3D acceleration card opemgl this card, is bad, as to compare with my 3dfx Voodoo2. 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.

The former being easier to fix, Radeon entered the market in the middle of as a first direct competition to Nvidia’s TnL atti.

The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand. The closest approximation is how an S3 Virge was a Trio64 with “3D” support. I have a OEM Dell? Peak processing rate is 1. It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output raeg pixels per clock two pixel pipelines.


ATI Rage – Wikipedia

Not quite there yet, but ATi found it sufficient for years to come. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.

Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers. Alright, now that we have an idea of which Rage cards to look for Nevertheless, sales were going strong and R3 architecture was to be found in newer and actually updated chips. The opebgl added feature is integrated TMDS for flat panels. High resolution and composited textures are supported.

The long life of R3 architecture after die shrink. Views Read Edit View history.

Final driver used for my tests is newest among everything I tried and is probably the only one with optimization for my system. Does ai know for certain? The image and textures also seem sharper on Rage cards then they do on TNT cards witch look washed out to me.

Good DVD acceleration also. But when it arrived at the end of the year in the form of Rageit also demonstrated very advanced design with “full speed” 32 bit depth rendering.



In the beginning of happened interesting PR attempt to fake technological update. 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. Also mip mapping in advanced games like Unreal is still doing wrong mip selections, so I disabled it again.

So textures were only displayed in the lowest resolution x?

Actually, after two freezes doing only timedemos I am not sure if they ever really got it stable. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards.

Developers were not pleased. It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size. Another complain is about reduced amount of texture samples at smaller mip levels, this creates obvious shimmering. The architecture performed well also after “Pro” update, dage ATI still wasn’t getting under the skin of gamers.
