A leading developer of graphics and consumer electronics chips is expected to roll-out its own bridge solution to allow PCI Express graphics processors to work in AGP systems. ATI RS200 CPU to AGP Bridge maneuver is used to set AGP graphics processing units to function with PCI Express x16 systems. Typically new personal computers with PCI Express x16 bus for graphics cannot work with AGP 8x graphics cards. Older systems with AGP bus also cannot handle PCI Express x16 add-in boards. For makers of graphics chips it means they either have to ship two product lineups, which may be inefficient from economic standpoint, or develop a special bridge that will allow using the same GPUs to power different graphics cards. And this where the ATI RS200 CPU to AGP Bridge comes in. it makes the computer very efficient for graphic work.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
It is advisable to use the latest 4.0.1998.1007 version of the device driver; it will help you to use functions of your ATI RS200 CPU to AGP Bridge, easier and better. Old versions can create conflicts of devices and an error in system work. Try to update drivers for ATI RS200 CPU to AGP Bridge monthly or more often. In addition choose the correct driver for your ATI RS200 CPU to AGP Bridge and make windows backup each time when you wish to update the ATI driver. ATI RS200 CPU to AGP Bridge turns PCI Express signals to AGP signals which allow ATI's PCI Express VPUs, such as RADEON X300, RADEON X700 or newer to work in AGP systems. The chip is able to transform AGP signals into PCI Express signals; ATI will also be able to address PCI Express market with AGP 8x chips. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and ATI RS200 CPU to AGP Bridge errors before installing any driver updates.
