Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak. Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers. There is quite recent driver set for this pair of chips, but opposed to 2. It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control. In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality. With memory bandwidth and sufficient capacity to allocate, true color rendering is a possibility.

Rage IIc also seems to be the only R2 chip with fully asynchronous chip and memory frequency. This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than rarely used exception.

The texture mapping is just slow, unable to show better rates than three clocks per iicc, even at the simplest of scenarios. It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size.

This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a iif gaming solution. Current technologies and software.

All 3d primitives from points to quadrilaterals are supported. Experience Ato you will see in the performance summary improvements in the 3d architecture are not to be seen in real games. Upon closer look the bilinear filter is really cheap, just like first Rage showed.


It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported.

Even if these features were “free”, Rage II performance would be far from best. Considering full availability in Christmas season such figure was far from exciting.

This page was last edited on 7 33d-rageat 3e-rage Archived from the original on Thus the improvement over first Rage II comes down only to more memory. In games, performance actually suffered. This is not much of surprise from a chip without texture caching, still despite this optimization in synthetic tests the performance drop of bilinear filtering remains rather big.

There are tweakers with sliders that should help with this issue sacrificing some performance, but I couldn’t achieve any change.

Views Read Edit View history. Yet the driver is not preferring format, there is no speed improvement anyway. As for driver bugs, I found only one serious, objects are disappearing in Battlezone.


With memory bandwidth and sufficient capacity to allocate, true color rendering is a possibility. From now on Rage chips carried new A3D logo, to show how serious is the new trend. 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.

This creates obvious color banding on low resolution textures viewed up close. 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. Blending unit looks flexible enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at it.

But for the time Rage II line gained big market share among 3d accelerators.

Not because of lack of memory, this is true for all Rage II cards reviewed. The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand.

And Rage II ain’t some speedster. Also depth buffer never delivered improved performance, so it is unlikely there is any z-compare rejection of pixels.

This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding.
