ATI 3D RAGE PRO TURBO PCI DRIVER
To win also in retail earlier availability and good initial drivers were needed. However as was common at the time, trilinear here stands for mere dithering between mip maps, not actual blending. ATI dragged this filter into next gen Rage as well and fortunately for them almost nobody noticed. The former being easier to fix, Radeon entered the market in the middle of as a first direct competition to Nvidia’s TnL chips. The long life of R3 architecture after die shrink. This late chip was very similar to the Rage II and supported the same application coding. When it comes to framerates Rage Pro with same bus and memory capacity equals both minimal and average results of Voodoo Graphics.

Nevertheless, sales were going strong and R3 architecture was to be found in newer and actually updated chips.
As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards. Views Read Edit View history. Support for texture fog and specular highlights was added as well. The only added feature is integrated TMDS for flat panels.

And as an integrated graphics for servers it went on almost forever. The chip should support also WRAM with external MHz rxge to exploit them at high resolutions, but I am not aware of any card taking advantage of that.
At the end of Radeon arrived, and while tyrbo had some performance problems in the turbi, it also showed a more advanced shading architecture than Nvidia’s. Of course this was quickly exposed and company covered in shame.
Which brings me to gaming experience of R3 cards. However, Ati successfully used the “complete multimedia solution” buzz and could set attractive pricing.
Actually, after two freezes doing only timedemos I am not sure if they ever really got it stable. Not quite there yet, but ATi found it sufficient for years to come.

And since Nvidia tripped over their shoelaces talent of ATI was no longer to be in doubt.
Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size. Such respins helped to prolong support for Rage Pro. In finally all the efforts delivered the big success, Radeona card with undisputed performance achievements and solid drivers from the start.
At least sub pixel accuracy was significantly improved but there are still some polygon gaps to be seen in few games. Third raye of Rage architecture arrived in summer How could one not mention the Turbo disaster in a Rage Pro article.
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.
