It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansion , which automatically adjusted images to full-screen size. Archived from the original on In games, performance actually suffered. Upon closer look the bilinear filter is really cheap, just like first Rage showed. 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. 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 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.

This creates obvious color banding on low resolution textures viewed up close.
Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. This is not much of surprise from a chip without texture caching, ikc despite this optimization in synthetic tests the performance drop of bilinear filtering remains rather big. With memory bandwidth and sufficient capacity to allocate, true color rendering is a possibility.
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 was stable and everything went as it should. Not because of lack of memory, this is qti for all Rage II cards reviewed. This time the architecture was definitely up to date with all of arge critical 3d features working.
Blending unit looks flexible enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at it. It took many years but final drivers are definitely good.
Considering full availability in Christmas season such figure was far from exciting.
Needless to say 32 bit frame-buffer color with so little memory, even if well implemented, is out of question. Rage IIc also seems to be the only R2 chip with fully asynchronous chip and memory frequency.

Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: Archived copy as title Pages using deprecated image syntax Commons category link is locally defined.
Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance drop. 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.
However some bugs and simplifications hold image quality back. This item doesn’t belong on this page.
ATI 3D Rage IIC AGP
For it’s time it is quite feature rich and can draw nice pictures, unless one nasty bug kicks in. This item may or may not be in original packaging.
The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or an eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’. It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control.
No ratings or reviews yet. Autumn came and before anyone could yet realize first Rage will have miserable Direct3D compatibility, ATI unveiled second chip of the line. A wide variety of memory configurations are supported, allowing implementations designed for low cost as well as high performance SGRAM and SDRAM configurations with full performance at ato color depths and high resolutions ari to x From now on Rage chips carried new A3D logo, to show how serious is the new trend.
It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines.
None of the advantages of my Rage IIc can help it challenge any high performance architecture, so Rsge put it against last Virge in disguise. Skip to main content. So I have nothing much to talk about, gallery is at your disposal anyway.

You may also like. Despite the poor introduction, the name Rage Pro Turbo stuck, and eventually ATI was able to release updated versions of lic driver which granted a visible performance increase in games, however this was still not enough to garner much interest from PC enthusiasts. With clocks almost identical to my vanilla Rage II it should demonstrate how additional memory helps. Trending Price New. For 3D Charger 4 MB of memory became standard and the card has good compatibility, avoiding problems until new generations of games in
