Bit-tech news

seems interesting

but surely the agp bus would limit the r600 (maybe not on middle end models)

good news for agp owners tho

I wonder how much more expensive the AGP parts will be compared to their PCIe counterparts?

You'd have to be daft to put something like this in an AGP slot. Luckily for AMD, there's plenty of idiots out there that will buy it no matter what.

well actually, there are quite a few boards that run pretty decent processors (fx-60s/62s) and have agp slots, sure, the bandwidth may limit them, but not enough to discourage the performance increase.

Just because I didn't have the money for Pci-e doesn't meant I'm an idiot...

Bandwidth wise a medium range r600 should not be a challenge for agp 8x, I doubt that there will be a high end card for agp.

If there would have been a 8800gtx for agp there could be bandwidth issues but hardly with a 8800gts.

so .. hmm. *coughs*
you have money for a R600 series card wich will be for sure over 300 US, but not for a mobo upgrade that costs less than 150 US? rofl...

and just because it says 'DX10' doesn't mean its going to be any good at DX10 games. The GMA X3000 is DX10, 'nuff said.

Wait for the benchies, and pricing, but don't get your hopes up.

I'm not gonna buy an R600 but I only have an AGP slot so what am I to do? If I do update the whole system I won't have as much to spend on a GPU. Basically I'll see what'll be the best bang for my buck when the time comes. And there'll have to be benchies for me to be able to compare so I'll just sit back and wait this thing out...
