While that would be cool, the source is CoolTechZone...
That has got to be the worse hardware site out there.

Kewl thanks for the link. It would be nice if Hexus listed its source, if it all goes back to CoolTechZone, than that info is not worth squat though. I guess we'll find out in Februrary. It definitely makes sense for nVIDIA to give loving to AGP users, they still greatly outnumber PCI Express users at the moment.

I'm glad, I would have to upgrade my power supply and mother board to go to PCI-E. I hope they make more AGP card in the future. And I still think PCI-E is pointless, not even even a 7800GTX or X1800 XT uses all the bandwidth. I have forgotten the link to this information (they only use about AGP 4x bandwidth). The only plus is crossfire and SLI.

And i am pretty sure AGP cant handle higher amounts of memory on the card that pci express can.

As of right now there is nothing that AGP can't do that PCI-E can except for running SLI...If you are building a new machine then I would go PCI-E just for future proofing needs because AGP is starting to go out of style. However if you have an existing AGP machine then this is going to finally be an upgrade for the AGP people that have 6800GT's and Ultras that need an upgrade...

People with 6800GT's and Ultra's shouldn't need an upgrade right now...

Hardware always outpaces software. Software engineers must be given time to fully exploit the new technology, or what you'll get is a piece of junk.

That dosen't really matter, considering its a 7-Series Card, the actual GPU is much more advanced than any of its predecessors. More complex circuitry, everything, its just an overall better card, clocks don't matter unless its in the same Series as the other card you're comparing it to.

The 5950Ultra has 8 pipes while the 7800GS will have 16 pipes. Plus each pipe on the 7800 is more efficient than each pipe on the 5950.
