AGP 7800s? Or PCI-X only?

Default AGP 7800s? Or PCI-X only?

Are there any?

I bought a new mobo late last year to go with an AMD 4000. I already had an
X800 Pro, AGP, so I didnt feel like going PCI Express at the time (and they
were brand new) and having to get a new GFX card.

Well, now I want a 7800 but it seems like they are PCI-X only? Why is that?
Does anyone know if the next gen ATI part will have an AGP version? The
R520 or whatever it is?

TIA

At this stage, only the PCI-E (PCI-X refers to an outdated technology, while
most people don't care - I don't - watch out for technodweebs who'll crack
it, just a friendly warning) versions of the 7800 line are available.
I haven't heard anything about nVidia releasing AGP versions.

But perhaps with enough customer demand, they may produce some. Start
whingeing to nVidia now!!!

As for ATI, I have no idea. They may manufacture some AGP, it might help to
give them a little bit of a better footing against nVidia.

I may b wrong here but I think you might b on about the nvidia 7800
not ati as im not sure if they do one. If it is the nvidia card then
they usualy do bring out an agp version of there cards a little later
than the PCI-Express

There are no PCI-X Geforce cards. You probably mean PCI Express which
is appreviated "PCIe". PCI-X is something different (enhancement of the
old PCI bus, usually used in servers and workstations for NICS,
FC-Controller and SCSI/SATA HBAs)...

Tell Intel that it's "outdated". All of their server boards have it.
You're confusing "high end" with "outdated".

You should care, otherwise one of these days you're going to order a PCI-X
something or other and wonder why you can't put it in your PCI Express
slot.

Is PCI-X in production? I did a search for PCI-X, and only
find references to PCI-E. I don't think there are any videocards that
are PCI-X, or any other device for that matter.

No. The video processing power of the latest cards from Nvidia and ATI
require the much faster speed of the PCI-Express bus. You chose unwisely,
I'm afraid.

Gee, google gives ~691,000 hits for 'PCI-X'. You might find the PCI SIG
organization helpful, as it maintains PCI bus standards (
http://www.pcisig.com/home ) .
