I don't know either.

If I Google '7950GS AGP' I get quite a few hits but they are
mostly forum comments. I would be very surprised if this isn't
the card nVidia releases to challenge the 1950PRO, but I could
be wrong.

Waiting and watching.

How can AGP keep up with a 7950?

How can AGP keep up with an X1950Pro? nVidia isn't going to let
ATI have the AGP market so they have to come up with something,
IMO.

There exists an Arctic Cooling-equipped, highly overclockable 512 MB 7900GT
AGP in the form of Gainward's 7800GS+, available for a price at
Overclockers.co.uk. Stop waiting. :-)

I would be very surprised if this isn't the card nVidia releases to
challenge the 1950PRO, but I could be wrong.


Remember, any board partner can integrate the HSI bridge and produce an AGP
card like Gainward has done. The reason they haven't is probably because
their market research shows little profit potential, even at $100 higher
prices than their PCIe equivalents - this may be why ATi doesn't market an
X1950 Pro AGP itself, leaving the risk to the smaller partners like
Powercolor, Diamond, Sapphire, etc.

And a damn good card it is too.
(Got mine in exchange for a DOA X850XT (non PE).)

That's what I mean really when I say ATI or nVidia. I think we
will see a BFG 7950GS OC AGP soon. Within the next 1-2 months;
maybe sooner.

Why? How large can the top end AGP market be? PCI-Express has been out
nearly 3 years. Even at my local computer retailer the number of AGP
cards available is dwarphed by the PCI-Express cards. They sell more
PCI-Express and AGP as well. Further, your typical AGP setup will run
Vista way too slowly.
