Video cards come in different formats such as PCI, PCIe and AGP though the most common specification for most of them is PCI. ASUS AGP-V3800PRO V56.72 comes in the AGP format. AGP is an acronym for Accelerated Graphics Port and refer to a swift point-to-point channel that is used to attach video cards to the motherboard of a computer, mainly to accelerate the 3- Dimensional computer graphics. AGP is however not a very popular format and most AGP cards are being phased out and being replaced with PCI Express cards. However, the AGP formats have some advantage over the PCI cards. The main advantage is that they give a dedicated pathway from the slot to the processor. Also, the point-to-point connections facilitate a superior clock speed. AGP cards use sideband addressing thus there is no need to read the whole packet to access the addressing information.
