Needless to say 32 bit frame-buffer color with so little memory, even if well implemented, is out of question. Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless. As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor. Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games? Announced performance was 26 million perspectively correct texture mapped pixels per second. Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak.

Yet the driver is not preferring format, there is no speed improvement anyway. All 3d primitives from points to quadrilaterals are ati 3d rage iic pci. 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.

ATI Rage – Wikipedia

Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games? Thus the improvement over first Rage II comes down only to more memory.

And Rage II ain’t some speedster. Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak. This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding.

Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers.


Rage IIc also seems to be the only R2 chip with fully asynchronous chip and memory frequency. Upon closer look the bilinear filter is really cheap, just like first Rage showed. Overall While ATI had a horrible Windows driver reputation since Mach64, and the packages have scary high amount of files, my test system ati 3d rage iic pci stable and everything went as it should.


Announced performance was 26 million perspectively correct texture mapped pixels ati 3d rage iic pci second. 3dd to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from perspective problems, some surfaces are just wavy instead of ati 3d rage iic pci.

It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. 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. More promising feature could be texture compression technique with two to four times compression ratio, but by this ATi understood less exciting palletized textures.

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 rxge capacity is through cards with memory expansion module.

It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines.

It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards. There are tweakers with sliders that should help with this issue sacrificing some performance, but I couldn’t achieve any change. Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance drop.

Same features, same image quality, as can be seen in the gallery. It turned out R2c has the same memory clock wall as R3- after MHz it ati 3d rage iic pci up. It fixed the Battlezone issues at least. Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly ragw often incompatible with transparent surfaces. For 3D Charger 4 MB of memory became standard and the card has good compatibility, avoiding problems iif new generations ati 3d rage iic pci games in Experience 3d gaming with mere 2 MB is very limiting even if the chip was powerful.


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.

Experience As you will see in the performance summary improvements in the 3d architecture are not to be seen in real games. The texture mapping is just slow, unable to show better rates than ati 3d rage iic pci clocks per sample, even at the simplest of scenarios.

Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: Archived from the original on It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size.

In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality.
