In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Intel 865G are significantly better than the AMD Rage 128 Pro.

The 865G was released over three years more recently than the Rage 128 Pro, and so the 865G is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Rage 128 Pro when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Rage 128 Pro has 16 MB more video memory than the 865G, so is likely to be slightly better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the Rage 128 Pro also has superior memory performance overall.

The Rage 128 Pro has 2.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the 865G, which means that the memory performance of the Rage 128 Pro is marginally better than the 865G.

The Rage 128 Pro has 2 Shader Processing Units and the 865G has 0. The two GPUs are based on different architectures, but deliver an equivalent shader performance. To compare, we must continue to look at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, we sadly do not have enough data in this area to complete the comparison.

The 865G requires 13 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Rage 128 Pro.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewLater, ATI developed a successor to the original Rage 128, called the Rage 128 Pro. This chip carried several enhancements, including an enhanced triangle setup engine that doubled geometry throughput to eight million triangles/s, better texture filtering, DirectX 6.0 texture compression, AGP 4, DVI support, and a Rage Theater chip for composite and S-Video TV-in. This chip was used on the gamer-oriented Rage Fury Pro boards and the business-oriented Xpert 2000 PRO.Intel 865G comes embedded on the Pentium 4, Pentium D, Pentium Extreme Edition, Celeron, Celeron D CPUS and features an Integrated GPU called Intel Extreme Graphics 2.
It only supports DirectX up to 7.0 so even DirectX 8/9 games aren't (hardware) supported. The performance is ridiculous and even very old games (before 2003) might require reduced settings. Today's games are, obviously, unplayable.
