Archived from the original on The sticker was already there when I bought it. Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported. 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. They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker. Looks like we have all the basics, or do we?

But I do not want such short articles, so I spent some time with Tomb Raider 2.

Since also texture features are causing framerate drop I am pretty sure the 3D Rage is really doing all relevant computing, even if it is not visible in the end. It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. And so I had to test it and got confused with two games which could seem to at least partially accelerated: This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution. Summary What more to say. It does not look too bad because even speed of basic texturing is quite low.


In following picture T stands for texturing, P for perspective correction, B for bilinear texture filter and Z is for Z-buffering.

In ATI was a big graphics company with strong presence of various 2d accelerators build on mach64 architecture. However Ati was not to let the future 3d gaming crowd slip away and quickly delivered more capable Rage II chip.

What can it do? In came first hardware accelerated xpreesion mach8 and one year later the first GUI accelerator mach One advantage of no texturing is such a clear look at low color precision of Gouraud shading on the 3D Rage, assuming dithering is disabled. Low filtering performance is hinting at lack of texture caching. The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of agi Rage brand.

You will notice from low number of benchmarks how many games fail with the chip.

In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis xpresssion 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality. Results from TR2 were not included to the benches above because the 3D Rage cannot display textures in the game.

Experience Turning on mip mapping in Flight Simulator at x is a bit too much. At that setting the hiccup bug did not happen and voila- this is the one game where S3 wins in both speed and quality.


What more to say. In games, performance actually suffered.

Tai first was called 3D Rage, announced in November and some people consider it a release date as well. It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size.

Aside from the VR chip’s lower price-point, the main difference was that the former was a atj bit design, while the VR, still a bit processor internally, used a bit external memory interface. More evidence can be seen in Rage screenshot gallery. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Bike shadows in Motoracer are simple rectangles.

I could not get any OpenGL title to work even with my wrappers. Due to small memory capacity maximum resolution without texture drops is x in Motoracer and x in Forsaken.

Despite video texturing support the Rage is not displaying them in Mortal Kombat. ATI went through same pain like Nvidia and 3Dlabs did in Rage II family review. There is some sub-pixel accuracy and hardware color calibration as well.
