Features, pricing, availability and specifications are subject to change without notice. The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand. 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.

It provides a direct connection between the card and memory, and only one AGP slot is on the motherboard.

Views Read Edit View history. Almost every version of Rage was used in mobile applications, but there were also some special versions of these chips which were optimized for this.

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 Xpert 99 Archived from the original on In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality.
ATI XPERT 99 graphics card – RAGE 128VR – 8 MB Series
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. Archived copy as title Pages using deprecated image syntax Commons category link is locally defined.
For other ATI news releases visit our web site at http: The processor was known for its well-performing bit color mode, but zti its poorly dithered bit mode; strangely, the RAGE was not much faster in bit color despite the lower bandwidth requirements.
Other important features include comprehensive support for ACPI Advanced Configuration and Power Interface A xperr management specification developed by Intel, Toshiba and Microsoft that makes hardware status information available to the operating system. Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand.
As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards. It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size.
In games, performance actually suffered. Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards atii in mobile applications like notebook computers. They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker.
Retrieved from ” https: It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control.
Performance per mm 2. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards.
Maximum ari resolution and colors supported with specified memory using double buffered setting and z-buffer. The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary. Available in plastic and ceramic varieties, BGA is noted for its compact size, high lead count and low inductance, which allows lower voltages to be used.
It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding. Current technologies and software. It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines.
