Yet Another PCI VS. AGP Thread.

AGP is dependent on PCI for decompressed video being delivered to it. #16 GhostDoggy, Jan 29, 2006 mindless1 Diamond Member Joined: Aug 11, 2001 Messages: 3,058 Likes Received: 10 Originally Tech Support Guy is completely free -- paid for by advertisers and donations. The grunt work of the PC is primarily for database work, so integrated graphics should be fine by me. The new cards Ati is releasing could very wel result in a lowering of videocard prices across the board (both Ati and Nvidia) thus enabling you to get a better videocard Source

Oh, wait, it can't because the PCI bridge for which the MPEG decompression must come across can't handle it. Sign Up Now! I'd get the v4 4500 agp if it were a free exhange. Although you won`t see much benefit between AGP and PCI as normal due to only using AGP 1.

Secondly, the 640 * 480 case was just thrown in to explain CPU limitations.

Kickstarters Review It! And he’s getting a newer card he’s willing to spend around 600bucks for one so recommendation of good video cards to recommend to him would Be nice too since I’m still PCI express is about the backplane bandwidth. And, because of these obstacles and hinderances to the maximum speed the car is capable of, the car will never be able to reach its tested speed in any drive across

Again, your post focused on the video cards alone and disregarded darkrat's use of the term, "overall performance ". Sign up now! Secondly, his response to you states: "Are you saying that the increase in CPU speed will counter the drop from AGP to PCI in the video card department?" Again it seems AGP Thread.

As Alex Ethridge says, it is important to look at the system as a whole. Should I get a motherboard with AGP x8 slot still or will PCI-Express be the new king in 12 months?

More... this contact form So what's the pros and cons for each? PCI-Express. I still have my doubts about this new technology.

Generally in my experience, if you need more memory for a card, you need substantially more memory 4x or more. 32mb -> 128mb not 32mb -> 64mb.

AGP Video Cards Discussion in 'PC Hardware' started by darkrats, 2003/02/22. There are other things than video cards, too. And of course we have our regular volt modders who push the thermal limits of these poor video cards.

What it shows is that GPU based boards are better value for money than the Voodoos because they help out CPU limited systems.

Your post ignores this fact and I will point out that no video card, no matter how advanced or how fast, can outrun the speed at which the processor delivers the Give up while you're only one post down. #17 mindless1, Jan 29, 2006 mwmorph Diamond Member Joined: Dec 27, 2004 Messages: 8,883 Likes Received: 0 Originally posted by: mindless1 Originally If you're getting a new motherboard now, get PCI-Express (even though you might have to wait a few months before motherboards with PCI-E support for AMD CPUs drop down to reasonable AGP Discussion in 'Video Cards and Graphics' started by the_querist, Sep 30, 2000.

I have to agree. Everything in that machine is dependent on other things it must communicate with, and wait on--even the hallowed AGP video card does not stand alone "overall ". No, create an account now. By continuing to use this site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

I don't know where you get your information; but, I back my statement with experience working on thousands of systems in on-site service since 1995. wtf are you talking about ghostdoggy? 1920x1080 120hz no possible means the ramdac is not fast enough. Additionally, ATI RS480 should obliterate K8M800 and SIS 760 integrated graphics at roughly the same price point, with more features as well. Would the 4500 AGP be compatible with the older AGP version on my motherboard or should I just stick with the 4500 PCI? #1 the_querist, Sep 30, 2000 Loading...

But, it seems I have a similar discussion every day. "But if I get a faster CPU, won't it make my computer faster? " "Depends on a few things. Thirdly, my information comes directly from the Engineers who design these systems, and I've personally worked with video systems since 1952, so I'm more than sure the info I gave was Stay logged in Sign up now!

AGP seems to have an end of life on the visible horizon (at least graphics cards do), while PCI-E seems extensible enough to last for quite a few years, and chip/card Arcadion, Jun 11, 2005 #4 TheBlob Thread Starter Joined: May 21, 2005 Messages: 68 Then I guess that sums it up.
