As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor. This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution. Texturing engine can now enjoy 4 kB cache, drastically reducing bandwidth demands of interpolation and enabling single pass free trilinear filtering. Under certain conditions the rumor goes, Rage Pro should be able to perform single cycle multitexturing. The amount is about the same as for Rage II, but this time is less expected since Rage Pro was supposed to have high quality texturing engine and “free” trilinear filter will not compensate for such deficiencies.

It integrated a low-voltage differential signaling LVDS transmitter for notebook LCDs and advanced power management block-by-block power control.
One weakness of previous Rage architecture remained- the inability to filter alpha blended textures. Such respins helped to prolong support for Rage Pro.

High resolution and composited textures are supported. In reality, early versions of the new driver only delivered increased performance in benchmarks such as Ziff-Davis ‘ 3D Winbench 98 and Final Reality. Despite the poor introduction, the name Oro 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.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. How could one not mention the Turbo disaster in a Rage Pro article.

In finally all the efforts delivered the big success, Radeona card with undisputed performance achievements and solid drivers from the start. Texturing engine can now enjoy 4 kB cache, drastically reducing bandwidth demands of interpolation and enabling single pass free trilinear filtering. 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.
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. This, in addition to its early lack of OpenGL support, hurt sales for what was touted to be a solid gaming solution.
The takeover of ATI had some critics, pto the trend of the future seems to be a convergence of CPU and graphics back into a single device and in this regard AMD is doing very well. However, in games I was not able to find any situation were enabled multitexturing would increase performance. The only added feature is integrated TMDS for flat panels.

They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker. When it comes to framerates Rage Pro with same bus and memory capacity equals both minimal and average results of Voodoo Graphics.
Not quite there yet, but ATi found it sufficient for years to come. Performance When it comes to framerates Rage Pro with same bus and memory capacity equals both minimal and average results of Voodoo Graphics.

As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards. It was ATI’s first dual texturing renderer, in that it could output two pixels per clock two pixel pipelines. Also mip mapping in advanced games like Unreal is still doing wrong mip selections, so I disabled it again.
Aside from the VR chip’s lower price-point, the main difference was that the former was a full bit design, pto the VR, still a bit processor internally, used a bit external memory interface. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used in for server motherboards.

Initial versions relied on standard graphics memory configurations: Who knows when, but the day will come when 3d accelerator as we use it will be unknown to gamers. And since Nvidia tripped over their shoelaces talent of ATI was no longer to be in doubt. Archived from the original on ATI’s effort to bite into professional market is also clear from addition of edge anti-aliasing.
