None of the advantages of my Rage IIc can help it challenge any high performance architecture, so I put it against last Virge in disguise.

Rage LT aka Mach64 LT was often implemented on motherboards and in mobile applications like notebook computers. Announced performance was 26 million perspectively correct texture mapped pixels 3d-raye second.
This will limit number of tests but never mind, better to have casual card than rarely used exception. Yet the driver is not preferring format, there is no speed improvement anyway.
It offered Filtered Ratiometric Expansionwhich automatically adjusted images to full-screen size. From Wikipedia, the jic encyclopedia. It was also seen on Intel motherboards, as recently asand was still used 3d-ragw for server motherboards. There is quite recent driver set for this pair of chips, but opposed to 2. As the name says, AFR renders each frame on an independent graphics processor.
Soon the competition in value segment got too tough. Similarly to Laguna3D all members of Rage II family suffers from perspective problems, some surfaces are just wavy instead of straight.
Considering full availability in Christmas season such figure was far from exciting. Perspective correction and 32 bit depth and even Z-buffering have little impact, but bilinear filtering higher than desirable performance drop. The chip was basically a die-shrunk Rage Prooptimized to be very inexpensive for solutions where only basic graphics output was necessary.

Iicc seems despite die shrink ATI did not made any architectural advancements, at least not in 3d. Experience 3d gaming with mere 2 MB is very limiting even if the chip was powerful. The processor was known 3d-rqge 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.
Number of games that can be actually run is of course limited, so gallery is not very big. 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.
It was up to Rage Pro to move ATi into higher class 3d gaming. With clocks almost identical to my vanilla Rage II it should demonstrate how additional memory helps. Most important was z-buffering implemented in hardware, as it became requirement for many Direct3D games.

Windows 95 and Mac OS were not supported. Maybe newer drivers broke compatibility with the tweak. Blending unit looks flexible enough for any mode early Direct3d apps could throw at it. 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 the performance of a Rage Fury card.
It scored with imperfect, but well chosen feature set including all important blending modes. Come to think of it how many small triangles were in old games?

To my knowledge Rage II did not get any better than this.
It fixed the Battlezone issues at least.
They were ATI’s first graphics solutions to carry the Mobility moniker. Considering how many ii shipped with only two megabytes of memory, it is welcome addition nonetheless. As a low-power solution with capable 2D-acceleration, the chip was used on many low-end graphics cards.
