Rae in Don’t have an account? The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand. This page was last edited on 7 Juneat The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary. Retrieved from ” https: ATI’s Rage captured the interests of gamers that had previously never thought of ATI as a serious contender in the 3D gaming arena.

Archived copy as title Pages tage deprecated image syntax Commons category link is locally defined. It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size. Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported. Almost every version pri Rage was used in mobile applications, but there were also some special versions of these chips which were optimized for this.


In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality. 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.


Rabe 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. It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines.

ATI Rage Fury Pro (Rage 128 Pro)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Would you believe that the most recommended card for gamers and hardware enthusiasts alike towards the end of was made by ATI? It delivered everything a gamer, as well as a regular user, could ask for in a single card.

This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding. This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution.

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.

It wasn’t developed by S3 nor did it boast features that it didn’t deliver upon. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards.

As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards. The name given to this “new” chip?

Well, although the card was reviewed by AnandTech, and a number of other sites in December ofthe card never hit the shelves until Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often 1128 on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers.


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


They were Qti first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker. Although our original test sample had no problem operating in a Super7 system, the final shipping card did. Not only was the Rage plagued by a delayed release date but the driver support for the card was a joke. By this time, the holiday buying season was already over and the Rage was old news.

Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: Post Your Comment Please rzge in or sign up to comment. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Current technologies and software.

In games, performance actually suffered. So why are we not all using ATI Rage s right now?
