Back in the day, a PC’s graphics card was limited to a paltry 133 MB/s of bandwidth, but then the Accelerated Graphics Port arrived with its 266 MB/s. That was followed by AGP 2x with 533 MB/s, AGP 4x with 1,066 MB/s, and eventually, AGP 8x with 2,133 MB/s of potential bandwidth. … to review

More information at: Personal Computer World, 5/2008 Sapphire HD3850 AGP graphics card With a lot of focus being on the biggest, most powerful graphics cards it is surprising just how many people who are still using the older AGP graphics port are being left out. This new ATi-based card from Sapphire, however, aims to give these users a lifeline. … to review

More information at: Personal Computer World, 12/2007 Sapphire HD2600 Pro AGP graphics card Just like an alien creature in some 1950s B movie, AGP refuses to die. No matter what the big two in the graphics market might say or think, the demand is still large enough for them to make AGP versions of the latest technology. This is one of the latest AGP cards from Sapphire and is based on the AMD’s RV60 core (more commonly known as the HD2600 Pro), and it brings DirectX 10 support for the many still using an AGP-based motherboard. … to review

Product information and further reviews

Nvidia GeForce 7800 GS AGP Register Hardware 2/2006 - Hands-up who remembers AGP? Ah, just the two of you, thought as much. You'd be forgiven for thinking that'd be the way such a conversation with four million geeks would go, given all the coverage of PCI Express graphics cards and platforms since PCI Express became the kind of slot you'd most want to plug stuff into. The reality is that AGP still sells well, even at the fairly high end, where ATI Radeon X800 and GeForce 6-series boards play. Indeed, Dixons here in the UK reports that they still ship 50:50 AGP:PCI-E when it comes to graphics boards, and 50 per cent of that first 50 per cent cost more than £100. So there's a bunch of you out there, to the tune of thousands of units a month, that want to drop decent money on AGP.

Information about the category


The CPU was originally enough to cope with all graphic and later 3D graphic needs but now, even as processors continue to be produced in ever more powerful and feature rich incarnations, the demands of modern games and high end software are just too much for the chip to handle on its own. Graphics cards are intended to run in parallel with the CPU and take on responsibility for all graphics processing while the CPU focuses on everything else. As graphics cards were being made to handle more and more data they moved from the old ISA interface to the faster PCI bus and eventually it was decided that a dedicated port with direct access to the CPU and a wider bandwidth was needed to really make use of a dedicated graphics processor. The AGP port was born and evolved from the original 266 MB/s to allow 2x, 4x and 8x speeds, the last of which can shunt 2GB of image date between the graphics card and CPU per second. The graphics card market was an remains a hotly contested battle ground for chip manufacturers and original powerhouses in the field like 3DFX and Matrox have all but fallen by the wayside as ATi and nVidia exert their dominance with their respective Radeon and GeForce chips. The graphics chip can also be integrated directly onto the motherboard, but this is an option largely shunned by gamers and power users as graphics memory is then shared and performance not really up to scratch for high end demands. The next step for graphics cards is the newly developed PCI-Express and a rediscovery of SLI, now renamed to stand for Scalable Link Interface, and designed to divide up the graphics work between two cards in order to improve performance.
