AGP4X vs AGP8X
Su HardwareZone.com è stato pubblicata un'analisi delle prestazioni dello standard AGP4X e AGP8X. Per effettuare i test è stata utilizzata una reference board di SiS, basata sul chipset 648 e una scheda video SiS Xabre400, con supporto per AGP4X e AGP8X.
Riportiamo di seguito un estratto delle conslusioni:
"Compared to the TNT days where there was virtually no difference with AGP 2X and AGP4X, what we have here today is pretty encouraging. Although the performance gained with AGP8X is up to only about 4.7%, we don't believe it is going to stop there. There are still a lot of fine tuning that needs to be done at the chipset level since what we have tested here were based on engineering samples. Moreover, the AGP specification is still not yet finalized and it's in the final draft right now. It's probable that what we saw today will be about 90%-95% of what will result after the standard goes final.[...]"
