Experience 3d gaming with mere 2 MB is very limiting even if the chip was powerful. Can’t seem to find updated or uic driver for this Old card.

Not because of lack of memory, this is true for all Rage II cards reviewed. It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich ragd 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.

Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported. It was up to Rage Pro to move ATi into higher class 3d gaming.


Dage 3d primitives from points to quadrilaterals are supported. Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless. The texture mapping is just slow, unable to show better rates than three clocks per sample, even at the simplest of scenarios.

It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. Announced performance was 26 million perspectively correct texture mapped pixels per second.

Soon the competition in value segment got too tough. This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution. Big Z’s System Specs. It took many years but rzge drivers are definitely good.

ATI RAGE IIC graphics card – RAGE IIC – 4 MB

Also depth buffer never delivered improved performance, so it is unlikely there is any z-compare rejection of pixels. Visit Big Z’s homepage!

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

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

Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control.

I am hoping a newer driver iiic improve the picture quality. Driver selected VT3 string, interesting Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak. Despite the poor introduction, the name Rage Pro Turbo stuck, and eventually ATI was able to release updated versions of the driver which granted a visible performance increase in games, however this was still not enough to garner much interest from PC enthusiasts.


Even if these features were “free”, Rage II performance would be far from best. Autumn came and before anyone ahi yet realize first Rage will have miserable Direct3D compatibility, ATI unveiled second chip of the line. There is quite recent driver set for this pair of chips, but opposed to 2. 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 such capacity is through cards with memory expansion module.
