PCI-Express, AGP 8x
News.com discusses the recent adoption of AGP 8x on NVidia's nForce2 chipset. But dates this standard and expects PCI Express to overtake it in about 1 1/2 years:
- "AGP has kind of worn out," said Peter Glaskowsky, editor in chief of industry newsletter the Microprocessor Report. "AGP 8x will last about a year, maybe a year and a half, then we'll get PC Express graphics cards. PCI Express has way more headroom to grow."
