Considering full availability in Christmas season such figure was far from exciting. As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor.

Rage II in person I bought this board with four memory chips in hope it is 4 MB, but it seems only way to get first Rage II with such capacity is through cards with memory expansion module.

Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak. It turned out R2c has the same memory clock wall as R3- after MHz it gives up.
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 was up to Rage Pro to move ATi into higher class 3d gaming. Needless to say 32 bit frame-buffer color with so little memory, even if well implemented, is out of question. It is the successor to the Mach series of 2f accelerators.

Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance drop. As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor.
The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. pcii
It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control. They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker. 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 visible performance increase in games, however this was still not enough to garner much interest from PC enthusiasts.
However at bugs and simplifications hold image quality back. Rage II in person I bought this board with four memory chips in hope it is 4 MB, but it seems only way to get first Rage II with such capacity is through cards with memory expansion module.

Similarly to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from perspective problems, some surfaces are just wavy instead of straight. Soon the competition in value segment got too tough. This is 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. The texture mapping is just slow, unable to show better rates than three clocks per sample, even at the simplest of scenarios.
Reported chip clock is 75 MHz, but that is wrong without a doubt. The processor 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 creates obvious color banding on low resolution textures viewed up close. ATi also kept on missing opportunity to implemented vertex specular highlights under Direct3d, despite having the feature in their proprietary CIF. I did some feature tests on VT4 in Tomb Raider 2. 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. In games, performance actually suffered.

Driver selected VT3 string, interesting Overall While ATI had ai 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. It scored with imperfect, but well chosen feature set including all important blending modes.
