So you like old junk, here's an ATi 3D Rage II I found. : Amd

The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary. 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.


Intel's i ATI 3D RAGE II+ explicitly designed to exploit the new AGP feature set. After applying the patch the Windows 95 system became Windows 95 version 4. Linux support for AGP enhanced fast data transfers was first added in with the implementation of the AGPgart kernel module.

Intel released "AGP specification 1. Specification 2.

Available versions are listed in the adjacent table. AGP version 3.


There are various physical interfaces. An ATI 3D RAGE II+ extension for cards that required more electrical power, with a longer slot with additional pins for that purpose. AGP Pro cards were workstation-class cards used to accelerate professional computer-aided design applications employed in the fields of architecture, engineering, simulations, a. Motherboard A motherboard is the main printed circuit board found in general purpose computers and other expandable systems. It holds and allows ATI 3D RAGE II+ between many of the crucial electronic components of a system, such as the central processing unit and memory, provides connectors for other peripherals.


Motherboard ATI 3D RAGE II+ to a PCB with expansion capability and as the name suggests, this board is referred to as the "mother" ATI 3D RAGE II+ all components attached to it, which include peripherals, interface cards, daughtercards: Prior to the invention of the microprocessorthe digital computer consisted of multiple printed circuit boards in a card-cage case with components connected by a backplane, a set of interconnected sockets. In old designs, copper wires were the discrete connections between card connector pins, but printed circuit boards soon became the standard practice; the Central Processing Unit and peripherals were housed on individual printed circuit boards, which were plugged into the backplane.

The ubiquitous S bus of the s ATI 3D RAGE II+ an example of this type of backplane system; the most popular computers of the s such as the Apple II and IBM PC had published schematic diagrams and other documentation which permitted rapid reverse-engineering and third-party replacement motherboards. Intended for building new computers compatible with the exemplars, many motherboards offered additional performance or other features and were used to upgrade the manufacturer's original equipment. During the late s and early s, it became economical to move an increasing number of peripheral functions onto the motherboard.

In the late s, personal computer motherboards began to include single ICs capable of supporting a set of low-speed peripherals: By the late s, many personal computer motherboards included ATI 3D RAGE II+ embedded audio, video and networking functions without the need for any expansion cards at all.

Business PCs, servers were more to need expansion cards, either for more robust functions, or for higher speeds. Laptop and notebook computers that ATI 3D RAGE II+ developed in the s integrated the most common peripherals; this included motherboards with no upgradeable components, a trend that would continue as smaller systems were introduced after the turn of the century. Memory, network controllers, power source, storage would be integrated into some systems. To be honest, I didn't find my 3D Pro Turbo to have a terribly sharp picture, but was running DOS games at the time and don't recall it being slow or incompatible.

I agree if you already own a Virge DX card, then there isn't much point to get a Rage II unless it's cheap, or you just like to screw around. The reason I choose Rage II over Virge back in the day was because it supported 8MB, whereas the Virge cards typically maxed out at 4MB, unless you're talking about the less common Virge VX, or one of the later models that weren't available in To my ATI 3D RAGE II+ Rage II did not get any better than this. It seems despite die shrink ATI did not made any architectural advancements, at least not in 3d.
