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. When it comes to framerates Rage Pro with same bus and memory capacity equals both minimal and average results of Voodoo Graphics. And as an integrated graphics for servers it went on almost forever. The amount is about the same as for Rage II, but this time is less expected since Rage Pro was supposed to have high quality texturing engine and “free” trilinear filter will not compensate for such deficiencies. Current technologies and software. The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Pro , optimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary.

ATi also never really excelled in 16 bit quality, instead they went for big true color leap ahead with next architecture. As the gallery shows the heaviest issue remains inability to filter textures blended ly alpha channel. If it was design choice, the motivation behind it is a mystery to me.

Merely tying fastest chipsets on the market with mature driversXpert cards were ap exactly gamers dream. Select type of offense: The chip should support also WRAM with external MHz ramdac to exploit them at high resolutions, but I am not aware of any card taking advantage of that.

It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators.


The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand. Thank You for Pdo a Reply,! Advertisements or commercial links.

The takeover of ATI had some critics, but the trend of the future seems to be a convergence of CPU and graphics back into a single device and in this regard AMD is doing very well.

Perhaps the rumor was spawned by the lf claim.

It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling 33d transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control.

Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported. ATI showed cleverly balanced chip and in rapidly consolidated market suddenly became the only “real” threat to what was shaping like Nvidia’s complete domination. And since Nvidia tripped over their shoelaces talent of ATI was no longer to be in doubt.

Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The former being easier to fix, Radeon entered the market in the middle of as a first direct competition to Nvidia’s TnL chips.

Of course this was quickly exposed and company covered in shame.

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. Geometry transformation defects of Rage II are gone, I did not notice any perspective errors. To win also in retail earlier availability and good initial drivers were needed.

Texturing engine can now enjoy 4 kB cache, drastically reducing bandwidth demands of interpolation and enabling single pass free trilinear filtering. As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor.

Another complain is about reduced amount of texture samples at smaller mip levels, this creates obvious shimmering. If you believe this comment is offensive or violates the CNET’s Site Terms of Useyou can report it below this will not automatically remove the comment.


Promote cracked software, or other illegal content. Very interesting were speculation about multitexturing capabilities of the texture unit. As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards.
