Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines.
The texture mapping is just slow, unable to show better raage than three clocks per sample, even at the simplest of scenarios. It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor. Similarly to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from perspective problems, some surfaces are just wavy instead of straight.

Experience As you will see in the performance summary improvements in the 3d architecture are not to be seen in real abp. 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.
This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than rarely used exception. Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported.

It fixed the Battlezone issues at least. It scored with imperfect, but well chosen feature set including all important blending modes. Also depth buffer never delivered improved performance, so it is unlikely there is any z-compare rejection of pixels. Aagp took many years but final drivers are definitely good. For 3D Charger 4 MB of memory became standard and the card has good compatibility, avoiding problems until new generations of games in On top of that AGP 1x interface became an option, but without any advanced features.
So I have nothing much to talk about, gallery is at dage disposal anyway.
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 avp performance increase in games, however this was still not enough to garner much interest from PC enthusiasts.
Almost every version of Rage was used in mobile applications, but there were also some special versions of these chips which were optimized for this.
However some bugs and simplifications hold image quality back. Most important was z-buffering implemented in hardware, as it became requirement for many Direct3D games.

All 3d primitives from points to quadrilaterals are supported. Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak. There is one suspicious image quality issue, textures often seem to have reduced color range.
Autumn came and before anyone could yet realize first Rage will have miserable Direct3D compatibility, ATI unveiled second chip of the line. Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces.
From now on Rage chips carried new A3D logo, to show how serious is the new trend.
And Rage II ain’t some speedster. Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games? On the hardware side Rage II was a solid low end architecture, but still with insufficient fillrates for x and therefore in great distance of performance chips. There are tweakers with sliders that 3s help with this issue sacrificing some performance, but I couldn’t achieve any change.
