Oh yea, Do you ever think they will come out with a new AGP slot type like AGXP.2.0 or PCI something like that. Where they are going to be not just x16 pipeline but 20 to 24 pipeline slots, if PCI in the future can no longer catch up with the technology for video card. Each day video cards will evolve and new motherboard and slots will have to be made. You thinks in 5 to 6 years from now Motherboard will have to make some changes and not just slot changes but all changes to a Motherboard system.
I will like to see if they do come out with a new AGP slot type that will either faster than PCIx16 or the same.
I will like to also see if they will come out with new memory for it like DDR5.
The future has some good technology for us in the Gaming/Computer Industry.
Let me you what you think about our future in Computer Gaming.
PCI-E more or less has become the dedicated video card slot while also catering to some other, rarer, components that happen to use it. Basically this slot will just continue evolving until it can't be upgraded anymore and you need an entirely new slot to make the best use of the cards. But that won't happen for at least another 4 years I think.
PCI-e is serial, and universal as long as nobody (like intel - AGP) comes out and tries to make something proprietary.
We may see up to an x32 slot one day if its needed, but the amount of data that can pass through each slot will technically double with pci-e 3.0 over the 2.0 standard by optimizing the way the data is transferred. We'll be fine for a number of years as long as chipsets keep up.
Technology is getting better and better, But we have no idea what the Computer industry is really up to these days.
better and more pipelines for video cards will make video card run faster and better.
New Motherboard will also become better. Yes In the future I am planning to build a very excellent computer by 2010.
Yes I know the PCIxE has become our be loving slot for your cards but think about it. We all felt the same way about the AGP slot
and now we turn out backs on the AGP. Wonder if they come out with a new slot in 2013, we will do the same as we did for the AGP to the PCIxE. In your hearts we love new and better technology when it's out there and a must to have product.
Would they come up with a new version of a AGP slot? We never know until it happen but always keep in mind that your computer
was born from a AGP slot to run video cards and we all know we miss the AGP and it has done some wonders for us in the past.
Soon they will drop something into your hands when you are going to see it coming.
