Nvidia’s BR02 chip was designed to convert the company’s PCI Express-based GeForce 7600 (G73) GPU to support AGP, however, this chip is not compatible with GeForce 8 series GPUs. A new version, A05, will work with current GeForce 8600 (G86) and 8400 (G84) GPUs and well as the upcoming G92 and G98, noted the sources… In related news, AMD also planned to introduce AGP versions of its Radeon HD 2600 (R630) and 2400 (R610) GPUs, but has encountered driver instability issues related to DirectX 10 and HDMI support, according to sources. These problems should be resolved by the end of this month, they added.
