ATI is getting faster Third generation of Rage architecture arrived in summer Ron I have no idea if there is a later version of this driver. Quake 3 even has special rendering path doing this filtering in software, but in some scenarios like with teleports the Rage Pro has to do the job on its own and leave some non-interpolated texel blocks on screen. I hope you have recovered. It also has some new features I’m going to learn about that the original didn’t have

Such respins helped to prolong support for Rage Pro. I understand the desire to be on the “cutting edge” of technology, but there is some truth in the adage that newer is not always better.

Discussion in ‘ Software ‘ started by RMMay 21, Your name or email address: I tried to use their “search” but could NOT get an exact match What followed x; was series of ATI vs Nvidia battles without a clear conclusion. RMMay 27, ATi also never really excelled in 16 bit quality, instead they went for big true color leap ahead with next architecture.

Finishing words The Rage Pro line may have not been warmly welcomed by gamers in retail, but strong OEM deals were feeding the company better then ever. Actually, after two freezes doing only timedemos I am not sure if they ever really got it stable.

ATI kept some old optimization in place, so even bilinear filter quality is still not perfect. Performance When it comes to framerates Rage Pro with same bus and memory capacity equals both minimal and average results of Voodoo Graphics.


Quake 3 even has special rendering path doing this filtering in software, but in some scenarios like with teleports the Rage Pro has to do the job on its own and leave some non-interpolated texel blocks on screen. Dear joelsz; OKQti stay with this program I’m only too glad to have helped.

Yes that’s oldbut I can NOT afford a new computer High resolution and composited textures are supported. However as was common at the time, trilinear here stands for mere dithering between mip maps, not actual blending.

I’ve never had that problem with DriverGuide before. I’m sorry to hear about your bout with food poisoning. 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.

The chip should support also WRAM with external MHz ramdac to proo them at high resolutions, but I am not aware of any card taking advantage of that. ATI entered like a graphics giant with more than 1, employees and during the year topped number of 3d chips sold, many of them integrated on motherboards. But when it arrived at the end of the year in rrage form of Rageit also demonstrated very advanced design with “full speed” 32 bit depth rendering.

I’m waiting for an answer Not quite there yet, but ATi found it sufficient for years to come. The former being easier to fix, Radeon entered the market in the middle of as a first direct competition to Nvidia’s TnL chips. At least on one occassion I updated a driver and then reverted back to the old one, because the newer was not better, but in fact wasn’t as good as the older.


The only complaint I have about MG is that there is no way to mark a thread successfully closed. I 3r it from DriverGuide of which I am a member and uploaded the file to my personal website for you to download from there.

OR should I just fly with this as is? Another complain is about reduced amount of texture samples at smaller mip levels, this creates obvious shimmering.

And I got NO return email from them either I have been searching the web and regularly get a site hawking “Driver Detective” that boasts it has found oneBUT when you try to get it they want to charge you for it I hope you have recovered. Geometry transformation defects of Rage II are gone, I did not notice any perspective errors.

In finally all the efforts delivered the big success, Radeona card with undisputed performance achievements and solid drivers from the start.
