VGA Charts VII: AGP Update Summer 2005

The Contestants

Our Summer 2005 AGP edition of the VGA charts covers 24 different AGP graphics cards. We've assembled a field of the most important and interesting AGP cards for this test. However, some cards were not available to us for testing, such as NVIDIA's GeForce 6800 SE or ATI's new Radeon X700 with the "Rialto" AGP bridge chip.

If you're looking for a particular model from the previous card generation or even the one before that, please take a look at our VGA Charts IV 2004 . You should be able to find any card that was current at that time there, giving you an easy basis for comparing the performance of those cards to that of the ones tested here (for example Radeon 9200 SE to Radeon 9600 Pro).
