Intel launched the first release of the AGP bus way back in 1997. The internet age wasn't even upon us then, was it? That was pre-HotHardware (founded early 1999); now that's just old school.

I have a computer this can go into! Not sure if it would be worth the money considering it's not much of a gaming machine anymore...
ASUS Rampage Formula; Core 2 Quad Extreme QX9650 @5.13GHz; 4GB Buffalo Firestix PC2-9600 DDR2; Thermaltake Armor w/ Bigwater SE; XFX Geforce 9800 GTX 'Black Edition'; Corsair HX620 Power Supply 620W
I would have to say that the games coming out now are going to require faster ram/graphics, and AGP motherboards just aren't going to be the cream of the crop.
I would be shocked by this anouncement but the truth is I know some people who still use AGP. But still I wonder what kind of market share HIS can expect to get from this product ? .1 of 1% maybe.
it says it has diretx 10.1 i wonder how they got it to run fast enough with agp to do that
***** Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted. *****
it would be good if you had a old computer and wanted to set it up for lan gaming
A great fit for people with AGP Socket 939 systems. While my 939 system is PCI-e, it has a 3850 and is capabe of playing Crysis, CoD 4, etc. Definiately the final upgrade for the slot, imo. Pentium 4 systems would not be using it fully, but do not doubt that 939 can still kick major ass.
Damn nice of them to do so...But cpu bottlenecking might become a issue from this point on...Any next generation cards would be useless in a AGP slot...lol. But for this generation..I'd expect it to hit the barrier. Definitely nice to see AMD/ATI do this though =P...
