It fixed the Battlezone issues at least. 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. Driver selected VT3 string, interesting It was up to Rage Pro to move ATi into higher class 3d gaming. Show less Show more. In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality. But for the time Rage II line gained big market share among 3d accelerators.

It took many years but final drivers are definitely good. The RAGE IIC delivers 3D performance which is unmatched in its class, along with comprehensive 3D features including perspectively correct texturing, mip-mapping, bilinear and trilinear filtering, Z-buffering, video texturing, Gouraud shading, and alpha blending.
Reported chip clock is 75 MHz, but that is wrong without a doubt. In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality.

This time the architecture was definitely up to date with all of the critical 3d features working. This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than sti used exception. It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per ragge two pixel pipelines.
This item may or may not be in original packaging. This page was last edited on 7 Juneat And Rage II ain’t some speedster. In games, performance actually suffered. Skip to main content. Overall While ATI had a horrible Windows driver reputation since Mach64, and the packages have scary high amount of files, my test system was stable and everything afi as it should.

On top of iiv AGP 1x interface became an option, but without any advanced features. Autumn came and before anyone could yet realize first Rage will have miserable Direct3D compatibility, ATI unveiled second chip of the line. Yet the driver is not preferring format, there is no speed improvement anyway. Announced performance was 26 million perspectively correct texture mapped pixels per second.

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. Most important was z-buffering implemented in hardware, as it became requirement for many Direct3D games.

For 3D Charger 4 MB of memory became standard ait the card has good compatibility, avoiding problems until new generations of games in Blending unit looks flexible enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at it. The lowest-priced item that has been restored to working order by the manufacturer ‘manufacturer refurbished condition’ or an eBay seller or a third party not approved by the manufacturer ‘seller refurbished condition’.
Raye means the item has been inspected, cleaned, and repaired to full working order and is in excellent condition. Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games?
Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless.
Archived from the original on Rage IIc also seems to be the only R2 chip with fully asynchronous chip and memory frequency. Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance drop. It fixed the Battlezone issues at least.
