It took many years but final drivers are definitely good. And Rage II ain’t some speedster. Find More Posts by Ichneumon. Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance drop. For 3D Charger 4 MB of memory became standard and the card has good compatibility, avoiding problems until new generations of games in

Even if these features were “free”, Rage II performance would be far from best. Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. It scored with imperfect, but well chosen feature set including all important blending modes.

You will find no XP or driver at all. Links monetized by VigLink. This creates obvious color banding on low resolution textures viewed up close. Rage IIc also seems to be the only R2 chip with fully asynchronous chip and memory frequency. Login or Register to remove this ad. Soon the competition in value segment got too tough.
I did some feature tests on VT4 in Tomb Raider 2. Mar 28, But for the time Rage II line gained big market share among 3d accelerators. However some bugs and simplifications hold image quality back.

This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than rarely used exception. Find More Posts by Big Z. Needless to say 32 bit frame-buffer color with so little memory, even if well implemented, is out of question.
Big Z’s System Specs. As for driver bugs, I found only one serious, objects are disappearing in Battlezone. There is quite recent driver set for lic pair of chips, but opposed to 2.

I found the following link http: Unfortunately, you are out of luck on that one. The screen appears to be shaking very fast.
ATI stopped supporting all their non-Radeon cards a long time ago. Most important was z-buffering implemented in hardware, as it became requirement for many Direct3D games.
Aug 22, Announced performance was 26 million perspectively correct texture mapped pixels per second.
Blending unit looks flexible enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at 3v. It took many years but final drivers are definitely good.
This rxge not much of surprise from a chip without texture caching, still despite this optimization in synthetic tests the performance drop of bilinear filtering remains rather big. Reported chip clock is 75 MHz, but that is wrong without a doubt.
On the hardware side Rage II was a solid low end architecture, but still with insufficient fillrates for x and therefore in great distance of performance chips.
From now on Rage chips carried new A3D logo, to show how serious is the new trend. The time now is For it’s time it is quite feature rich and can draw nice pictures, unless one nasty bug kicks in. Ikc Guests Only Login or Register to remove this ad. Aug 20, ,
