ATI and Nvidia to roll out last AGP8X chips
DigiTimes notes that both Nvidia's and ATI's next generation cards will be the last AGP cards they'll ever release. This isn't surprising as both companies are ramping up boards as soon as PCI-Express is released. PCI-Express though somewhat boring from an enthusiast point of view will be a major change in the OEM market.
ATI Technologies and Nvidia will both launch new-generation AGP8X chips in the second quarter aiming to sustain their market shares before they start marketing chips supporting PCI Express standards, according to sources familiar with the roadmaps of the two companies.
Edit: It's more likely that the R420 is the last card designed specifically for AGP 8X. ATI's future cards will probably be designed for PCI-Express and use a bridge chip to work in an AGP slot.
