question about agp on tyan Thunder K7X Pro

Last Modified: 2010-04-26
hello docey here,

i i'm looking for a new motherbord with 8x AGP and dual AMP Athlon MP
i current hava Asus A7M266-D with 2x AMD Athlon MP 1900+. the problem is
that it has 4x AGP wich is getting a bit slow nowadays.

now i have found the Tyan Thunder K7X pro. but the website say's
it has: AGP Pro110. after some searching and reading so reviews its seems
that AGP Pro110 is somkind of level 3 of AGP 3.0 at 110 watts.

but all those reviews are confusing me, some sites say's you can put an AGP Pro card
on this motherbord, but the many of the resellers say it has 4x AGP.

now to the point, can i place a 8x AGP like the ATI Radeon9800 Pro on this
motherbord or am i wrong and is this not 8x AGP

i hope some one can give me some proof that this is 8x AGP or is
not 8x AGP because i am getting a bit confused.
