HardOCP has confirmed that the initial wave of motherboards for AMD's upcoming Opteron processor won't have AGP ports, dashing many enthusiasts' 64-bit dreams. Though the lack of motherboards with AGP ports won't hurt the Opteron's suitability for server applications, those looking for a 64-bit workstation are going to have to wait a little longer.
While the first batch of Opteron motherboards won't have AGP support, AMD's desktop Athlon 64 platform will launch alongside plenty of motherboards featuring AGP ports. Of course, that Athlon 64 launch won't happen until September. And so the wait continues.
