Avoid anything ATI related before the original Radeon.
Eh? No. Rage had driver issues at its time, but they have been fairly ironed out later on. Latest drivers for Rage cards are mostly trouble free and Rage 128 PRO is a fairly fast chipset, fairly comparable to a TNT2 or V3-2000.
Phil's review does it justice here.
I agree with all of the above, I owned a day 1 rage 128 pro and was quite disappointed at launch but it was very quickly remedied by drivers. Most of the remnant benchmarks and reviews existing online are a bit skewed to the launch driver. I chose it over a voodoo 3 because I was sold on 32 bit color, which did look significantly better. It was a very good 32-bit card, but in 16-bit mode it was quite a bit slower than a voodoo 3. This is just another case of an ATi card being brushed off by history even though it was a decent card 😜
Sup. I like computers. Are you a computer?
