Rage 128 Flavors
Rage Fury/Xpert 2000
The Rage Fury and Xpert 2000 use the original Rage 128 and are available with up to 32MB versions and offer a 250MHz RAMDAC. The Rage 128 offers high-quality video upscaling as well as iCDT and Motion Compensation DVD acceleration.
Although ATI will not confirm core and memory speeds, we believe that the Rage Fury runs at 103MHz for the core, and 110 MHz for memory. The Rage128 chipset was first seen in Apple's Blueberry G3 Macintoshes, and reached the PC in February. Right now you can find online vendors selling the Rage Fury 32MB for about $120.
Rage Fury Pro/Rage Mobility 128/Rage Fury MAXX
These unreleased cards use ATI's Rage 128 Pro technology. As the successor to the original Rage128, the Rage 128 Pro offers better performance and better image quality through the addition of not only a newer algorithm for 16-bit color dithering, but also support for DirectX6 Texture Compression and anisotropic filtering.
The Rage Fury Pro is currently shipping at 130 MHz core, and 142 MHz memory. Although not yet final, the Rage Mobility 128 is clocked below that of the Rage Fury Pro and is approximately 100MHz. The Rage Fury MAXX uses ATI's multiple ASIC technology which uses two Rage128 Pros in parallel.
Although the All-in-Wonder 128 32MB is ATI's newest product, it uses the same Rage 128 chip found in the Rage Fury. The single-slot AGP and PCI card is targeted at the home user and offers an integrated TV tuner and video capture and editing.
The All-in-Wonder 128 is the only all-in-one multimedia upgrade to offer a plentiful 32MB of SDRAM. As mentioned earlier, the 32MB edition is designed for more demanding users and offers TV output and video capture enhanced by the Rage Theater. Although we are not sure why, ATI has chosen to reduce the clockspeed of the All-in-Wonder 128 to 90MHz core and 90 MHz memory.
