"MAXX is not the word"

The Rage Fury MAXX looked like it was going to be one of those cards that go straight to the top of the market because it was offering the best components, the fastest components and the most memory on board. A whopping 64Mb RAM built onto the board seemed very appealing. It would aswell with a price tag of around $200. However the card just does not reach the level of performance its supposed to. The Dual Rage 128 pro Processors dont seem to work very well together. Its a certainty that you dont get double the performance of single rage fury 128 pro 32Mb.

The so called ATI MAXX technology which I presume is the technology which makes the processors work together cant be that good. You cant take power away from the processor and having more memory can only be a good thing, so it must be down to the way the card is driven. Maybe if the Drivers get a little more behind them we may see an improvement, but I doubt its worth buying this card now that the Radeon is out.

lets look at what the card did have. well it has the normal ATI features, who allways pack there cards full of everything thats going. So we obviously get a hardware DVD decoder in there which is allways helpful. It supports AGP 2x and 4x and supports both Open GL and Direct 3D
all the standards features in todays cards now.

In conclusion its not a bad card for the price its sold at but its no where near as good as what it should be, A dual processor card with 64Mb RAM should easilly be leagues ahead of what this card really is.
