ATI 3D Rage IIC AGP
Also depth buffer never delivered improved performance, so it is unlikely there is any z-compare rejection of pixels. It fixed the Battlezone issues at least.
Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. Most important was z-buffering implemented in hardware, as rag became requirement for many Direct3D games. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards. This ait chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding.
Aside from the VR chip’s lower price-point, the main difference was that the former was qti full bit design, while the VR, still a bit processor internally, used a bit external memory interface. Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers. With memory bandwidth and sufficient capacity to allocate, true color rendering is a possibility.
Reported chip clock is 75 MHz, but that is wrong without a doubt.
This page was last edited on 7 Juneat This time the architecture was definitely up to date with all of the critical 3d features working. None of the advantages of my Rage IIc can help it challenge any high performance architecture, so I put it against last Virge in disguise. Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games? The texture mapping is just slow, unable to show better rates than three clocks per sample, even at the simplest of scenarios.

Upon closer look the bilinear filter is really cheap, just like first Rage showed. 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 went as it should. Autumn came and before anyone could yet realize first Rage will have miserable Direct3D ioc, ATI unveiled second chip of the line. It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators.
Needless to say 32 bit frame-buffer color with so little memory, even if well implemented, is out of question. It scored with imperfect, but well chosen feature set including all important blending modes. Rage IIc also seems to be the only Avp chip with fully asynchronous chip and memory frequency. Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: It took many years but final drivers are definitely good.

It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen ioc. As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards.
Current technologies and software. This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than rarely used exception.

More promising feature could be texture compression technique with two to four times compression ratio, but by this ATi understood less exciting ap textures. As for driver bugs, I found only one serious, objects are disappearing in Battlezone.
Announced performance was 26 million perspectively correct texture mapped pixels per second. Thus the improvement over first Rage II comes down only to more memory.
For 3D Charger 4 MB of memory became standard and the card has good compatibility, avoiding problems until new generations of games in And Rage II ain’t some speedster. In games, performance actually suffered.
