Considering full availability in Christmas season such figure was far from exciting. It scored with imperfect, but well chosen feature set including all important blending modes. This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution. Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games? It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines. Again and better Autumn came and before anyone could yet realize first Rage will have miserable Direct3D compatibility, ATI unveiled second chip of the line. Upon closer look the bilinear filter is really cheap, just like first Rage showed.

It fixed the Battlezone issues at least. Similarly to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from perspective problems, some surfaces are just wavy instead of straight. Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. But for the time Rage II line gained big market share among 3d accelerators. Blending unit looks ragieic enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at it.
Rage IIc also seems to be the only R2 chip with fully asynchronous chip and memory frequency. Yet the driver is not preferring format, there is no speed improvement anyway.

Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. Archived copy as title Pages using deprecated image syntax Commons category link is locally defined.
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. Experience 3d gaming with mere 2 MB is very limiting even if the chip was powerful. There is one suspicious image quality issue, textures often seem to have reduced color range. Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers.
And Rage II ain’t some speedster. It was up to Rage Pro to move ATi into higher class 3d gaming.

This creates obvious color banding on low resolution textures viewed up close. More promising feature could be texture compression technique with two to four times compression ratio, but by this ATi understood less exciting palletized textures. There is rageiiic recent driver set for this pair of chips, but opposed to 2. The processor was known for its well-performing bit color mode, but also its poorly dithered bit mode; strangely, the Rageiix was not much faster in bit color despite the lower bandwidth requirements.

It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines. Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance raageiic.

This time the architecture was definitely up to date with all of the critical 3d features working. The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary.
It was atii seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards.
Also depth buffer never delivered improved performance, so it is unlikely there is any z-compare rejection of pixels. Number of games that can be actually run is of course limited, so gallery is not very big.
