-- (Accelerated Graphics Port)
architecture that enables a graphic controller to communiate
with the computer and access it's main memory. AGP is a high
speed interface designed to handle 3-d technology and store
3-d textures in the main memory rather than the video memory.
AGP is one of the newest specification for video card. On the
lower end is onboard video, in the middle (allthough a rapidy
dissapearing form) is the PCI video card and then comes AGP.
AGP comes in 2X, 4X and the new 8X. This does not mean that
the computer has eight AGP ports. Rather this means that the
computer is able to run AGP cards at eight times the original
speed that AGP was created at.
