View Full Version : Open Gl support for Rage IIC on xp

I am running windows xp on my computer, and I have a Rage IIC agp card. I am trying to run 3d game studio and It keeps telling me that there is no 3d hardware found. I think I may have the wrong drivers and would like to find some with OpenGL support if at all possible. Anyone out there know?

I doubt you'll find ANY openGL drivers for this. It looks like ATI doesn't support the chipset anymore and Microsoft was kind enough to write an XP driver.

Its ATI's responsiblity to offer an XP driver that enables OpenGL on that chip.

But thats an ancient chip (2nd generation), today even CPU's can do 3d (Gouraud, bi-linear) faster in software then this card can do it in hardware...

The 3d capabilities of that chip are way TOO limited (it dosent even support multitexturing to begin with)...

I strongly recommend an upgrade.
