Trying to identify this video card. It is an ATI All In Wonder Rage 128 Pro, this much we know. I assumed it had 32mb of memory, but Windows ME is identifying it as a Rage 128 Pro with 16mb. I know they made an All In Wonder Rage 128 (not Pro) that is 16mb but I can't find anything on a Pro version that is 16mb. This card has the large, black heatsink, all of the 16mg cards I've seen have no heat sink, just the exposed surface of the chip. Any help on identifying this.

If you got it from a guy in Mount Pleasant, it's one of the cards I modified, and it's not a pro.

The retail or OEM versions don't have a heatsink. I have an AIW 128 Pro PCI with 16MB (and also an AIW 128 AGP 16MB). You might see space next to the main chip where the extra 16MB would have been soldered if it were a 32MB. The non-pro would not have the extra space since 16MB is the max for them.

But would Windows still identify it as a "pro" card?

You mean the driver? ATI drivers do weird things, my old Radeon LE has been detected as a 7000, 7200, 7500, and Radeon DDR by various drivers.
