ATI close to bridging PCI-E to AGP
Beyond3D has the goods
on ATI's latest analyst conference call, including this tasty tidbit on a PCI Express-to-AGP bridge chip:
During the conference call ATI’s CEO noted that they still prefer native solutions in both PCI Express and AGP (potentially leaving the door open for more AGP ASIC’s) but acknowledged that they will have a bridge to enable a PCI Express chip to operate in an AGP platform within “the next couple of months”.
It would certainly be nice to have an AGP version of ATI's new 12-pipe Radeon X800
to go up against NVIDIA's GeForce 6600 GT AGP
