This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than rarely used exception. Experience As you will see in the performance summary improvements in the 3d architecture are not to be seen in real games. NT put them both on the AGP bus and switched between them, and so the board could only operate as a single Rage Pro with the performance of a Rage Fury card. Not because of lack of memory, this is true for all Rage II cards reviewed. Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless.

Experience As c2 will see in the performance summary improvements in the 3d architecture are not to be seen in real games. It took many years but final drivers are definitely good.
It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen 22c. Current technologies and software. Driver selected VT3 string, interesting Similarly to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from perspective problems, some surfaces are just wavy instead of straight.
Most important was z-buffering implemented in hardware, as it became requirement for many Direct3D games. Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces.
ATI RAGE IIC graphics card – RAGE IIC – 4 MB
For it’s time it is quite feature rich and pcii draw nice pictures, unless one nasty bug kicks in. More promising feature could be texture compression technique with two to four times compression ratio, but by this ATi understood less exciting palletized textures.
It was up to Rage Pro to move ATi into higher class 3d gaming. But for the time Rage II line gained big market share among 3d accelerators. The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary. This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual pco than rarely used exception. To my raage Rage II did not get any better than this. For 3D Charger 4 MB of memory became standard and the card has good compatibility, avoiding problems until new generations of games in It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards.
As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor. Also depth buffer never delivered improved performance, so it is unlikely there is any z-compare rejection of pixels. This page was last edited on 7 Juneat Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance drop.
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.
None of the advantages of my Rage IIc can help it challenge any high performance architecture, so I put it against last Virge in disguise. It fixed the Battlezone issues at least. All 3d primitives from points to quadrilaterals are supported. It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines.

However some bugs and simplifications hold image quality back. They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker.
Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games? Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: Views Read Edit View history.
