CUDA Transcode Improved Performance
Rage uses very highly compressed texture data as part of its MegaTexture technology engine. Users with a fast Nvidia video card can benefit from CUDA transcoding which will offload the decompressing task to the video card rather than the CPU. Users with 4 or more processor cores instead can benefit from extra CPU transcoding by disabling this feature and thus giving all available video card time to rendering the game.

- AutoHotKey Script does not work. RAGE will resize so that the title bar of the window becomes visible.
- RAGE's fullscreen mode is extremely Alt+Tab ↹-friendly, and can be done virtually seamlessly.
Rage.exe to the GameCompanion will run the game in borderless fullscreen windowed mode. Due to the window styling, it appears that the window will be slightly too small for the native resolution, revealing a small window border on one side.
