9/5/2000: Intel, NVIDIA and ATI are employed at the AGP 8x
It seems that the specifications go more rapid than the manufacturers, the AGP is still not implanted 4x and they are already going to double the speed...
Intel is employed at the new specifications, destined to double the band of the current graphic cards in his communication with the memory of the system, coming up to 2 GB/s, to 533 MHz.
ATI has announced that his future models RADEON will use the above mentioned technology, reaching (according to ATI) "unimaginable realism levels in real-time thanks to the big band of the memory". Other manufacturers as NVIDIA supports this evolution of the AGP.
... In any case, it seems that enough still stays to reach the wide ones of memory that are achieved using the memory integrated to the graphic card, especially if it is a question of memory DDR. Will so many "x" be in practice an advance merely of marketing, or will it serve as anything?
