Yet the driver is not preferring format, there is no speed improvement anyway. It was up to Rage Pro to move ATi into higher class 3d gaming. More promising feature could be texture compression technique with two to four times compression ratio, but by this ATi understood less exciting palletized textures. This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding. Driver selected VT3 string, interesting

Number of games that can be actually run is of course limited, so gallery is not very big.
ATI 3d Rage IIC AGP Video Card 9806-05 – C05
There ijc tweakers with sliders that should help with this issue sacrificing some performance, but I couldn’t achieve any change. Driver selected VT3 string, interesting As for driver bugs, I found only one serious, objects are disappearing in Battlezone.
Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported. Again and better Autumn came and before anyone could yet realize first Rage will have miserable Direct3D compatibility, ATI unveiled second chip of the line.
This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding. Needless to say 32 bit frame-buffer color with so little memory, even if well implemented, is out of question. Not because of lack of memory, this is true for all Rage II cards reviewed.
Same features, same image quality, as can be seen in the gallery. 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 scored with imperfect, but well chosen feature set including all important blending modes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
ATI 3D Rage IIC AGP
NT put them both on the AGP bus and switched between them, and so the board could only operate as a single Rage Ari with the performance of a Rage Fury card. It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size.
Considering full availability in Christmas season such figure was far from exciting. Archived from the original on For it’s time it is quite feature rich and can draw nice pictures, unless one nasty bug kicks in. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards. In games, performance actually suffered. Soon the competition in value segment got too tough. More promising feature could be texture compression technique with two to four times compression ratio, but by this ATi understood less exciting palletized textures.
It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control.
Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games?

But for the time Rage II line gained big market share among 3d accelerators. Reported chip clock is 75 MHz, but that is wrong without a doubt. Blending unit looks flexible enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at it.
Announced performance was 26 million perspectively correct texture mapped pixels per second. On top of that AGP 1x interface became an option, but without any advanced features. Similarly to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from perspective problems, some surfaces are just wavy instead of straight.

Yet the driver is not preferring format, there is no speed improvement anyway. The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand.
As the name says, AFR renders ragr frame on an independent graphics processor. 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.
There is one suspicious image quality issue, textures often seem to have reduced color range. They 3c ATI’s first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker.
