Well... I never have the AGP fast write option enabled, and I wouldn't recommend to do so.

What futuremark says is bull****. In their benchmarks, you only get 3-5 points extra + less overclocking potential. I just tried this with my secondary computer. With fastwirite enabled the CPU could OC to ~2070 MHz, without it I have reached 2280 MHz. (The computer runs a sempron 2400+ Socket 462)

Futuremark is right about the way it works, but this process puts more load on the motherboard components (especially RAM and NB) hence decreasing OC potential. Sometimes it slows the motherboard or GPU down, because the data has to go through RAM and NB before going to the GPU. This was true on one of my older computers.

so "fast write" is not fast, they should call it "slow unstable piece of **** that u can torture your motheboard with"
