Hi.

In researching Mobo features, I am coming across these terms.

What do they mean and what are their advantages & disadvantages?

Cheers!

It's the speed at which data is capable of being transferred on the AGP bus.   8x currently offers no advantage over 4x because nothing uses all the bandwidth of 4x.
