ATI RAGE PRO TURBO AGP 2X 4MB (DESKPRO EN SERIES) COMPAQ CTO ONL
In other projects Wikimedia Commons. 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.
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. It is the successor to the Mach series of 2D accelerators. This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution.

As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor. In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis mobilitj 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality. Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported.

Current technologies and software. 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 mobiliry performance increase in games, however this was still not enough to garner much interest from PC enthusiasts.
It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards. Ago was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines. Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers.

The qti was known for its well-performing bit color mode, but also its poorly dithered bit mode; strangely, the RAGE was not much faster in bit color despite the lower bandwidth requirements. This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding. It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size. NT put them both on the AGP bus and switched between them, and so the board could only operate as a single Rage Pro with the performance of a Rage Fury card.
The chip was basically a die-shrunk Ag; Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary. They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker. This page was last edited on 7 Juneat Aside from the VR chip’s lower mobiligy, 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.
