Mach64 GP is a 3D RAGE PRO, which is a Mach64 GT model and should work fine.
Welcome to the world of numbering ATI Mach64 chips! :-)

Basically the Mach64 comes in two flavors:

- Mach64 GX (old): GX and CX
- Mach64 CT (new), with 3 classes:
o CT
o VT (video extensions) (VT, VU, ...)
o GT (3D RAGE) (GT, GU, GP, ...)

And then we don't even consider the LT versions (for LCD)...
