AGP was to allow the graphics card access to the main system memory pool and treat the system ram as being on the same allocation section as video ram – ie, the first 4mb would be on the card, the next 28mb used would be in system memory, with the difference being transparent to the game using the memory. AGP and system memory are not used unless absolutely necessary. In order to be more efficient in your search, in what forum do you want to search? Sign up now Username Password Remember Me.

For what it’s worth: Increasing asue to gargantuan proportions will not improve performance. The premise behind this is that the prospect of being stuck with an old version of the VIA GART driver just doesn’t sit too well with us as you never know when VIA will introduce an important feature or fix.

This is because the AGP agrt needs a write combined memory area zsus in size to the actual AGP memory area asux plus an additional 12MB for virtual addressing. The email address gsrt your Ubisoft account is currently: This is because the graphics card will have more local memory to use for texture storage!

Just something the computer needs for the card to go through the AGP slot and talk to the rest of the system properly. Finally on May 12,VIA released version 4. Please read and follow the instructions provided to complete this process. The time now is AGP was to allow the graphics card access to the main system memory pool and treat the system ram as being on the same allocation section as video ram – ie, the first 4mb would be on the card, the next 28mb used would be in system memory, with the difference being transparent to the game using the memory.
You also need to calculate the final aperture size by doubling the amount of AGP memory space desired and adding 12MB to the total. What are GART drivers? Please note that the AGP aperture is merely address space, not asks physical memory in use. Host cycles that hit the aperture address range are forwarded to the AGP bus without need for translation. Would this be the fix ASUS had alluded to?

I didn’t do it until now, but now I wonder if I should have. After many long discussions with VIA and ASUS, who of course blamed each other for the problem, we still had no resolution over 2 months after the release of the board.

Hi, you must use the GART driver auss of the smartgart driver that comes with the catalyst drivers. I noticed this after some problems during some games. The GART drivers will basically turn on use of AGP features specific to your motherboard chipset, as opposed to slower or emulated features in the generic driver.
While various BIOS updates were released and rumors circulated that the issue had been fixed with the new “fast-writes” feature of BIOSwe were never able to duplicate these findings in the AnandTech lab.
In order to be more efficient in your search, in what forum do you want to search? Some users will have to bear in mind that while different GART drivers might install OK on their system, there’ll usually be one out there that is more stable or more feature complete than others. You want to install them. Not aware of any similar issues with Intels own chipsets though.
