Windows device driver information for AGP-130

The acronym AGP stands for Accelerated Graphic Ports. AGP-130 may be defined as an interface specification. It allows for 3 dimensional graphics to be displayed quickly especially on ordinary personal computers. AGP-130 is designed such that 3 dimensional images, for instance, those from websites and CD ROMS, faster and more smoothly on other computers other than the expensive graphic work stations. AGP-130 is especially useful when used in conjunction with gaming, 3 dimension videos and also such sophisticated programs as scientific and engineering graphics. The AGP-130 interface makes use of the computer's Random Access Memory (RAM) for purposes of refreshing monitor images. It also supports the mapping of texture, z-buffering and alpha blending all of which are crucial in the display of 3 dimensional images. The importance of AGP-130 is that it offers high speed data transfer to and from the computers Random Access Memory.

AGP-130's main memory is considered to be dynamic. This means that when not in use in accelerated graphics, the memory is instead restored for use by either the operating system or other applications. The main advantage that AGP has over PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) is that it runs several times faster. Ultimately, users get to transfer more data and at a higher rate than is the case when PCI video cards are in use. This is primarily because is that it makes use of eight sideband address line which allows for the concurrent transfer of multiple data. To the novice, AGP-130 enables the computer to have a dedicated way of communicating with the graphics card. This helps to enhance not only the look but also the speed of a user's computer graphics. AGP-130 was first introduced by Intel as a way of ensuring the efficient streaming of videos. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and AGP-130 errors before installing any driver updates.
