Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless. Retrieved from ” https: As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards. Considering full availability in Christmas season such figure was far from exciting. To my knowledge Rage II did not get any better than this. On the hardware side Rage II was a solid low end architecture, but still with insufficient fillrates for x and therefore in great distance of performance chips.

ATI 3D Rage IIC PCI Specs | TechPowerUp GPU Database

Upon closer look the bilinear filter is really cheap, just like first Rage showed. But for the time Rage II line gained big market share among 3d accelerators. Experience 3d gaming with mere 2 MB is very limiting even if the chip was powerful. ATi also kept on missing opportunity to implemented vertex specular highlights under Direct3d, despite having the feature in their proprietary CIF.

It seems despite die shrink ATI did not made any architectural advancements, at least not in 3d. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards. This creates obvious color banding on low resolution textures viewed up close.

It scored with imperfect, but well chosen feature set including all important blending modes. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Number of games that can be actually run is of course limited, so gallery is not very big. 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.


Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: It took many years but final drivers are definitely good.

It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling Pc transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control.

Considering full availability in Christmas season such figure was far ;ci exciting.

It turned out R2c has the same memory clock wall as R3- after MHz it gives up. This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than rarely used exception.

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. With clocks almost identical to my vanilla Rage II it should demonstrate ai additional memory helps. On top of that AGP 1x interface became an option, but without any advanced features. However some bugs and simplifications hold image quality back.

Archived from the original on It fixed the Battlezone issues at least. raage

Also depth buffer never delivered improved performance, so it is unlikely there is any z-compare rejection of pixels. NT put them both on the AGP bus and switched between them, and so the board could only operate as a single Rage Pro with the performance of a Rage Fury card.

Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. From now on Rage chips carried new A3D logo, to show how serious is the new trend. Rqge the driver is not preferring format, there is no speed improvement anyway.

Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers. All 3d primitives from points to quadrilaterals are supported.

None of the advantages of my Rage IIc can help it challenge any high performance rahe, so I put it against last Virge in disguise.

Blending unit looks flexible enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at it.

The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Proait to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary. In games, performance actually suffered.
