ATI have an updated driver for RAGE. It has been out about a week ago. With the Rage update as well, there are no more glitches and plays very smooth.

www2.ati.com/drivers/hotfix/amd_catalyst_rage_performance_driver.exe

Also, if I play without the trainer, there are no crashes at all. As others suggested, disabling god and easy kill before going to new area helps to reduce the number of crashes.

I dare say that ATI and AMD both said DO NOT INSTALL THEIR PATCH. I seriously doubt you are getting a "smooth" video, if you are, you are a rare breed and my hat is off to you as thousands of other folk are having the same graphic issues.
Post your rig settings please, share some insight with the rest of us poor folk who are suffering with a crappy release.
Graphic resolution, chipset, processor, memory config Etc.

Intel Quad core @ 3.2 Ghz (Q9450)
8GB RAM DDR2
2x160Gb HDD in RAID 0 (Windows + apps storage)
1x500Gb HDD
HIS ATI Radeon HD 6850; 1Gb VRAM
ATI Catalyst RAGE performance driver
Win 7 64bit

Rage settings:
1680x1050 resolution limited by my monitor
Vsync - ON
Texture Cache - LARGE
Anisotropic Filter - HIGH
AntiAliasing - 8X

Basically all maxed out.
FPS displayed by Fraps doesn't drop under 60 fps (because vsync is on, the fps is limited to the refresh rate). Also, no video glitches at all.
I must admit, graphically it doesn't look like a 2012 game.

Also tried capturing a video with Fraps, but it doesn't like it at all; both game and Fraps crashes to desktop.

IM replying to you. because your not running its highest textures that you need at 3gb video ram to run, its normal textures need something like 1.2 - 1.5gb of vram

Its stupid but its ID

i got it narrowed down to 7 vehicle armor and 8 super boost options in trainer that is causing the load zone crashes. and worst part is neither of those options has an off option, always on. so i have to task manager out close game, start game wait to load then use those options when neeeded and repeat at next load zone. hopefully a updated trainer fix will come, anyway thought i would share my two cents.

Nah, it's not just those options. I had them off and crashed anyway. Something in the trainer is messing around, even if all the options are left off.

For those of you that are having problems with bad graphics and textures that keep 'popping' in when ever you look around, they are known issues caused by faults with the PC version.

The game engine is supposed to auto-detect the best settings for your hardware, but it often uses the lower quality 4k textures when your card can run the better 8k ones. I had to create a config file with lots of options including one which forces it to use 8k textures instead of the 4k and it makes a big difference.

The texture 'popping' happens because the game doesn't auto-create a cache folder that it needs to temporarily save the textures for the areas you look at in-game. After creating that folder and adding it's directory to the config file (or the Steam game launch options) it fixed the issue.

All the info you need about the best graphics options and how to set up a config file can be found in a sticky post in the Rage section of the Steam forum.
