Geforce4 Ti 4200 performance on 2x AGP bus
Posted on 2002-06-19
Theoretically, the Visiontek Geforce4 Ti 4200 can achieve memory bandwith of 7.1GB/sec. This is impressive, but I suppose that was done using a 4x AGP bus. I was wondering, how much memory bandwith can be transferred using 2x AGP for a Geforce4 Ti 4200, or any high end graphics card for that matter?
By the way, is the idea of using a Geforce4 Ti 4200 in a 2x AGP bus sort of ridiculous, knowing that I will never see its full potential in my computer? Would it just be better if I look for a lower end AGP card, say a video card based off the Geforce3 chip?
