From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Of course this was quickly exposed and company covered in shame. In games, performance actually suffered. No TV tuner and only composite input, weird. And since Nvidia tripped over their shoelaces talent of ATI was no longer to be in doubt.

Just pair it up with a V2, seems like a good choice.
ATI Rage PRO Ultra Specs | TechPowerUp GPU Database
The takeover of ATI had some critics, but the trend of the future seems to be atl convergence of CPU and graphics back into a single device and in this regard AMD is doing very well. The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary.
Video output uses a short breakout cable.
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.
Playing like a Pro Per-polygon mip mapping going wrong I already mentioned bilinear filter optimization.
Also mip mapping in 128m games like Unreal is still doing wrong mip selections, so I disabled it again. Don’t eat stuff off a 15 year old never cleaned cpu cooler.
ATI RAGE PRO GL 32M SDRAM AGP Overview – CNET
Geometry transformation defects of Rage 128b are gone, I did not notice any perspective errors. So what clocks did your Rage Pro had?
Support for texture fog and specular highlights was added as well. No TV tuner and only composite input, weird. Multimedia Composite and S-Video works great. This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA.

Actually, after two freezes doing only timedemos I am not sure if they ever really got it stable. Rage Pro has double the amount of gradients over Rage II and it is enough to not be perceived at first look, but still is far from proper filtering. The card does perform exactly like expected. What followed after was series of ATI vs Nvidia battles without a clear conclusion.
This late chip was very similar to the 128m II and supported the rafe application coding. The former being easier to fix, Radeon entered the market in the middle of as a first direct competition to Nvidia’s TnL chips.
Nice write up, Phil! Keep in mind that there are lots of OEM versions of this card.

The card also worked great in a Slot 1 motherboard with Intel BX chipset. This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution.
Use S-Video for best quality: AMD doesn’t have this on the website, at least I couldn’t find it, but Elinda has it on his FTP server, he runs a website under the name retronn.
Here are all the individual benchmark results.
Your benchmarks actually unveiled nothing unexpected. Users browsing this forum: But when it arrived at the end of the year in the form of 128bit also demonstrated very advanced design with “full speed” 32 bit depth rendering. I was equally impressed with how much less 32bit color depth hits the Rage compared to the competition. ATi also never really excelled in 16 bit quality, instead they went for big true color leap ahead with next architecture.
Thanks for the info Phil!
