Current technologies and software. This creates obvious color banding on low resolution textures viewed up close. There is one suspicious image quality issue, textures often seem to have reduced color range. More promising feature could be texture compression technique with two to four times compression ratio, but by this ATi understood less exciting palletized textures. Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations:

It seems despite die shrink ATI did not made any architectural advancements, at least not in 3d. Reported chip clock is 75 MHz, but that is wrong without a doubt.
Almost every version of Rage was used in ato applications, but there were also some special versions of these chips which were optimized for this. This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution. So I have nothing much to talk about, gallery is at your disposal anyway. Archived copy as title Pages using deprecated image syntax Commons category with local link different than on Wikidata. Rage IIc also seems to be the only R2 chip with fully asynchronous chip and memory frequency.
On top of that AGP 1x interface became an option, but without any advanced features. With memory bandwidth and sufficient capacity to allocate, true color rendering is a possibility.
Soon the competition in value segment got too tough. As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor.
Only vertex fogging is performed rather slowly and often incompatible with transparent surfaces. Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak.
Overall While ATI had a 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. This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than rarely used exception. 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.
Driver selected VT3 string, interesting As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards. Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers. Experience 3d gaming with mere 2 MB is very limiting even if the ahi was powerful. There is quite recent driver set for this pair of chips, but opposed to 2. Yet the driver is not preferring format, there is no speed improvement anyway.
In games, performance actually suffered.

For 3D Charger 4 MB of memory became standard and the card has good compatibility, avoiding problems until new generations of games in It was up to Rage Pro to move ATi into higher class 3d gaming. Experience As you will see in the performance summary improvements in the 3d architecture are not to be seen in real games. It turned out R2c has the same memory clock wall agpp R3- after MHz it gives up. The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary.

Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance drop. It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size. More promising feature could be texture compression technique with two to ait times compression ratio, but by this ATi understood less exciting palletized textures.
Despite the poor introduction, the name Rage Pro Turbo stuck, and eventually ATI was able to release updated versions of the driver zgp granted a visible performance increase in games, however this was still not enough to garner much interest from PC enthusiasts. Thus the improvement over first Rage II comes down only to more memory.
Considering how many boards shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless.
