There is quite recent driver set for this pair of chips, but opposed to 2. Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak. It took many years but final drivers are definitely good. Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games? It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators.

As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor. ATi also kept on missing opportunity to implemented vertex rxge highlights under Direct3d, despite having the feature in their proprietary CIF.
In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality.
Not because of lack of memory, this is true for all Rage II cards reviewed. From now on Rage chips carried new A3D logo, to show how serious is the new trend.
It seems despite die shrink ATI did not made any architectural advancements, at least not in 3d. Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance drop.
Retrieved from ” https: There is quite recent driver set for this pair of chips, but opposed to 2. It took many years but final drivers are definitely good. Experience As you will see in the performance summary improvements in the 3d architecture are not to be seen 3v real games. I did some feature tests on VT4 in Tomb Raider 2. Reported chip clock is 75 MHz, but that is wrong without a doubt.

It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still fage in for server motherboards. Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games? To my knowledge Rage II did not get any better than this. Views Read Edit View history. It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control. This is not much of surprise 3x a chip without texture caching, still despite this optimization in synthetic tests the performance drop of bilinear filtering remains rather big.
ATI Rage – Wikipedia
All 3d primitives from points to quadrilaterals are supported. However some bugs and simplifications hold image quality back. It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines.
Similarly to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from perspective problems, some ragw are just wavy instead of straight.
It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. It was up to Rage Pro to move ATi into higher class 3d gaming. It fixed the Battlezone issues at least.
With memory bandwidth and sufficient capacity to allocate, true color rendering is a possibility. Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless.

Thus the improvement over first Rage II comes aggp only to more memory. Archived from the original on In games, performance actually suffered. This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than rarely used exception. The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary.
