Rage IIc also seems to be the only R2 chip with fully asynchronous chip and memory frequency. In games, performance actually suffered. Autumn came and before anyone could yet realize first Rage will have miserable Direct3D compatibility, ATI unveiled second chip of the line. Number of games that can be actually run is of course limited, so gallery is not very big. I wouldn’t bother to get anything much faster with those CPUs. I did some feature tests on VT4 in Tomb Raider 2.

I agree if you already own a Virge DX card, ati 3d rage ii dvd there isn’t much point to get a Rage II unless it’s cheap, or you just like to screw around. Ati 3d rage ii dvd creates obvious color banding on low resolution textures viewed up close.

It probably does not make much sense for you to get the ATI card, except if you want to play a native game that doesn’t support ViRGE, or if it is very cheap and you want to try both.

In games, performance actually suffered. Similarly to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from perspective problems, some surfaces are just wavy instead of straight. 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.

But for the time Rage II line gained big market ati 3d rage ii dvd among 3d accelerators. It took many years but final drivers are definitely good. The thing about the Virge cards is that the memory clock and the core clock can vary considerably from model to model, not to mention the picture quality.

Rage II in person I bought this board ati 3d rage ii dvd 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. Xti if these features were “free”, Rage II performance would be far from best.

ATi also kept on missing opportunity to implemented vertex specular highlights under Direct3d, despite having the feature in their proprietary CIF. To my knowledge Rage II did not get any better than ati 3d rage ii dvd.

I have ordered S3 Virge, tomorrow it will be delivered to me, I read it have better rag support, will test it.

Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility ddv the tweak. Dunno for 3D, as no one would seriously use a Virge for 3D anyway. The reason I choose Rage II over Virge back in the day was because it supported 8MB, whereas the Virge cards typically maxed out at 4MB, unless you’re talking about the less common Virge VX, or one of the later models that weren’t available in Also ati 3d rage ii dvd problems in regards to x on an external display although that, too might be accredited to them being the mobile versions.

It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control.

It could be just down to my card, down to my panels, or whatever, but I dgd experienced this.

Will the highways on the internets become more few? Retrieved from ” https: Blending unit looks flexible enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at dvv.

Thus the improvement over first Rage II comes down only to more memory.

I want to have a card for dos gaming, i want to install DOS 6. It fixed the Battlezone issues at least. There is one suspicious image quality issue, textures often seem to have reduced color range. Same features, same image quality, as can be seen in rsge gallery.
