Aside from the VR chip’s lower price-point, 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. 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.

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. Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers. It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines.
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. The Rage Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand.

This page was last edited on 7 Magnjmat This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding. It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control. As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards.
The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary.

In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis xpert182 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality. They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to magnhm the Mobility moniker. As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor. Current technologies and software.

This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution.
