The 3D Rage was a performance-segment graphics card by ATI, launched in April 1996. Built on the 500 nm process, and based on the Mach64 GT graphics processor, in its 215GT1NA21 variant, the card supports DirectX 5.0. Since 3D Rage does not support DirectX 11 or DirectX 12, it might not be able to run all the latest games. The Mach64 GT graphics processor is a relatively small chip with a die area of only 90 mm² and 5 million transistors. It features 1 pixel shader and 0 vertex shaders, 1 texture mapping unit and 1 ROP. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). ATI has paired 2 MB EDO memory with the 3D Rage, which are connected using a 64-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 44 MHz, memory is running at 66 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, its power draw is not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x VGA. 3D Rage is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI interface. Its price at launch was 219 US Dollars.
