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 visible performance increase in games, however this was still not enough to garner much interest from PC enthusiasts. ATI showed cleverly balanced chip and in rapidly consolidated market suddenly became the only “real” threat to what was shaping like Nvidia’s complete domination.

High resolution and composited textures are supported. Actually, after two freezes doing only timedemos I am not sure if they ever really got it stable.

This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding.

It is codenamed mach64LB and as you see the chip was used for discrete cards as well. Peak processing rate is 1. Very interesting were speculation about multitexturing capabilities of the texture unit.

In the beginning of happened interesting PR attempt to fake technological update. If it was design choice, the motivation behind it is a mystery to me.

In graphucs, performance actually suffered. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Another complain is about reduced amount of texture samples at smaller mip levels, this creates obvious shimmering. As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards.

ATI kept some old optimization in place, so even bilinear filter quality 2 still not perfect. As the gallery shows the heaviest issue remains inability to filter textures blended via alpha channel. Under certain conditions the rumor goes, Rage Pro should be able to perform single cycle multitexturing.


ATI dragged this filter into next gen Rage as well and fortunately for them almost nobody noticed. Playing like a Pro Per-polygon mip mapping going wrong I already mentioned bilinear filter optimization.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This page was last edited on 7 Juneat And as an integrated graphics for servers it went on almost forever. Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers. However, Ati successfully used the “complete multimedia solution” buzz and could set attractive pricing.

What followed after was series of ATI vs Nvidia battles without a clear conclusion. The amount is about the same as for Rage II, but this time is less expected since Rage Pro was supposed to have high quality texturing engine and “free” trilinear filter will not compensate for such deficiencies. Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported.


Of course this was quickly exposed and company covered in shame. Integrared 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.

Geometry transformation defects of Rage II are gone, I did not notice any perspective errors.

Nevertheless, sales were going strong and R3 architecture was to be found in newer and actually updated chips. It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size.

Who knows when, but the day will come when 3d accelerator as we use it will be unknown to gamers. Current technologies and software. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards. How could one not pfo the Turbo disaster in a Rage Pro article.
