Because even the Rage Pro Turbo isn't that great in Quake II OpenGL .
I was of course concerned only about the "Turbo" part.

I had a Ati Xpert Play PCI with a 233 MMX, Quake 1 kinda worked. Maybe at 20/25 fps, difficult to remember. Same card as the Xpert Work, but with TV out. I think it was a Rage Pro.
With the usual Ati OpenGL defects , all particles are squarred 😀
Adding a Voodoo1 was a great improvement.

I have a Rage Pro Turbo PCI in my MMX200 PC at the moment and it's playable (20-30fps) in 640x480 OpenGL, it's kind of at Voodoo 1 speeds, there isn't a world of difference. The image quality is very different, there is no mipmapping and texture filtering, it looks more like software rendering than OpenGL. I quite like it, to be honest.

My choice to this card was exactly some old benchmarks which didn't show too much of a difference between a V1 and the Rage Pro, that's why I was so confused when it didn't perform as expected.
But now I am pretty sure it's the CPU bottlenecking the experience, because I just rejumpered the system to OC che CPU, and the game already runs better - seems like I will do rebuild this PC with the other motherboard and MMX233.

The difference with a Voodoo 1 is you can get about 40 fps on this one in Quake, with a light overclocking in a batch file.
I don't think it's possible with an Ati.
