Default Chances of the R520 being bridged?

I was wondering how good are the chances that ATI will bridge the R520 back to AGP? Since supposidly the bridge will be ready first quarter next year. I expect there to be bugs with PCI-E until around 6 months or so after the nForce 4 is released. The reason why is I want to know if I should hold out for the R520 or just get the Visiontek X800 XT.

honestly i think it will happen. i think agp will die after the desktop r500 is released.(card after the 520) but then again ati has taken a wait and look view at agp cards right now with their huge lineup of pci express cards while leaving agp users starving to death.

my percentages would be 75-80 yes. 20-25 no.

There has been some talk about a PCIE->AGP bridge chip codenamed rialto from ati in the past so I'd guess the chances are quite good
Athlon64 X2 3800+
MSI sli diamond 54G
SB Audigy2ZS
Radeon X1800XT
Found a bug? Report it to ATi ;)

personally i dont think you will see it. i think they are building things into the card that dont work with AGP??

they have made a clear cut move to undercut AGP and kill it off so that will only slow its death. not that pattern that im seeing from ATI.

ATI wants to sell PCI-X cards and chipsets people. cant you see that?

we will be lucky to get the X850XTpe bridged. i dont see them going AGP on anything past X800XL. IMHO!

think about it. they have a power hungry card with X850XTpe and bridge will only add more heat and power use.

insiders warned us about the death of AGP at ATI a few months ago when they implimented their plans. yes it was just rumors but they have been spot on so far.

I think they will release one more high end chip and then it will be dead.
