AGP - Accelerated Graphics Port

AGP, creasted in 1996, is a now obsolete method of allowing a graphics card to use your computer's main memory for processing graphics images via a higher speed connection than was previously available. AGP is a higher speed bus that is dedicated to connecting the graphics card to the computer's CPU. AGP has been replaced by PCIe. The second version (2.0) added AGP 4x, and Version 3.0 added 8x. ... AGP 1x - 32-bit channel operating at 66 MHz. Its bandwidth is 266 MB/s. The latest version is AGP 8x - 2.1 Gbps bandwidth. "AGP 1x - 32-bit channel operating at 66 MHz. Its bandwidth is 266 MB/s, which is twice a high as PCI's (133 MB/s, 33 MHz, 32-bit). AGP 2x - 32-bit channel operating at the doubled bandwidth of 533 MB/s at the same 66 MHz owing to dual-way data transfers similar to DDR memory (only directed to a graphics card.) AGP 4x - the same 32-bit channel at 66 MHz, but with effective frequency quadrupled to 266 MHz, maximum bandwidth exceeding 1 GB/s. AGP 8x - additional modifications allowed to achieve 2.1 GB/s bandwidth." - AGP Graphics expansion slot - ixbtlabs How AGP Works - Howstuffworks Intel: Accelerated Graphics Port Technical Information AGP - pctechguide nVidia: AGP 8X AGP - Wikipedia

Aero - graphics card spec - a Windows Vista option

Microsoft has defined a new class of Windows Graphics Cards, called "Aero". Microsoft Lists five quantities that a Windows Aero graphics card must have/do: 1] Run Direct-X 9 on a GPU (not using the CPU for Direct-X functions). 2] Utilize a WDDM driver (not a .sys driver). But a WDDM driver must have OPM (Output Protection Management) - (DRM). 3] Support Pixel Shader 2.0 4] Utilize at least 32-bits of information per pixel. 5] Have "sufficient" memory.
