Athlon AGP: 2X or not 2X?
Word on the street is that NVIDIA's newer drivers simply disable AGP 2X mode for Athlon systems because some of those systems have problems in 2X mode. The folks at Riva3D have put together a little article explaining how to turn AGP 2X mode back on and showing--with benchmarks--how 3D performance can benefit from using 2X mode. I know we've heard about this before, but the Riva3D article is a little more useful than what I've seen in the past. Props to the 'shack for the link.
