Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers.
They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker. Log in Don’t have an account?

Current technologies and software. ATI’s Rage captured the interests of gamers that had previously never thought of ATI as a serious contender in the 3D gaming arena.
NT put them both on the AGP bus and switched between them, and so the board could only operate as a single Rage Pro with oro performance of a Rage Fury card. Views Read Edit View history. So why are we not all using ATI Rage s right now?
ATI Rage Fury Pro (Rage Pro)
Despite the oro introduction, the name Rage Pro Turbo stuck, and eventually ATI was able to release updated versions of zti driver which granted a visible performance increase in games, however this was still not enough to garner much interest from PC enthusiasts.
In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality. It delivered everything a gamer, as well as a regular user, could ask for in a single card. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards.
ATI Rage 128 PRO Ultra
Would you believe that the most recommended card for gamers and hardware enthusiasts alike towards the end of was made by ATI? Well, although the card was reviewed by AnandTech, and a number of other sites in December ofthe card never hit the shelves until Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: Archived from the original on The 32,b Pro graphics accelerator was the final revision of the Rage architecture and last use of the Rage brand.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In games, performance actually suffered. The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary. The processor was known for its well-performing bit 32mg mode, but also its poorly dithered bit mode; strangely, the RAGE was not much faster in bit color despite the lower bandwidth requirements.
By this time, the holiday buying season was already over and the Rage was old news. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.
This page was last edited on 7 June32m This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding. This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be rwge solid gaming solution. 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.
It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, at that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines. It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control. 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.
Although our original test sample had no problem operating in a Super7 system, the final shipping card did. As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used wti many low-end graphics cards.
