As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards. The only added feature is integrated TMDS for flat panels.
It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines. Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported.

The former being easier to fix, Radeon entered the market in the middle of as a first direct competition to Nvidia’s TnL chips. 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.
One weakness of previous Rage architecture remained- the inability to filter alpha blended textures. Now with all the texture cache Rage Pro should handle this relatively easily. In the beginning of happened interesting PR attempt to fake technological update. Very interesting were speculation about multitexturing capabilities of the texture unit. Retrieved from ” https: Such respins helped to prolong support for Rage Pro. The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand.
Views Read Edit View history. Perhaps the rumor was spawned by the “trilinear” claim.
How could one not mention the Prro disaster in a Rage Pro article. Considering long life time of the Rage Pro architecture, this should not have happened and caused image quality issues in years when such omission was no longer tolerable. ATi also never really excelled in 16 bit quality, instead they went for big true color leap ahead with next architecture.
Developers were not pleased. ATI kept some old optimization tuurbo place, so even bilinear filter quality is still not perfect. The chip should support also WRAM with external MHz ramdac to exploit them at high resolutions, but I am not aware of any card taking advantage of that. It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and turbl power management block-by-block power control.
This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution. This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding.

ATI showed cleverly balanced chip and in rapidly consolidated market suddenly became the only “real” threat to what was shaping like Nvidia’s complete domination.
With the new driver strongly optimized for popular synthetic benchmark and “Turbo” printed next to Rage Pro on chips ATI tried to create new product.
Between companies designing high performance 3d accelerators ATI was among last to deliver dual pipeline architecture. Also mip mapping in advanced games like Unreal is still doing atti mip selections, so I disabled it again. As the gallery shows the heaviest issue remains inability to filter textures blended via alpha channel.

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. The long life of R3 architecture after die shrink.
It is codenamed mach64LB and as you see the chip was used for discrete cards as well. Who knows when, but the sgp will come when 3d accelerator as we use it will be unknown to gamers. To win also in retail earlier ragf and good initial drivers were needed.
