8X Graphic Card...?
Hi all, I've bought Winfast Geforce FX5200 G/card 8X, and my motherboad is Epox 8KHA+ which is just only only 4X, but I benchmark it with 3DMark2001SE, the point 7010. And then cahnge my motherboard with MSI KT4AV which support 8X, but when I benchmark the point is only 6890..., Idont know why, but all the driver allready updated, and other systems and applications is all the same, I just change the motherboard and update the driver.
AMD Athlon XP 1700+
256 Kingston 266DDR
Maxtor 40GB HDD
Epox M/B only support 200/266DDR, and MSI KT4AV support 266/333/400DDR...
There could be a lot of reasons for the performance decline.
1. One motherboard has a higher FSB than the other.
2. One motherboard is just better built.
3. Different Chipsets
4. Different Video Chipsets.
Theres a lot of reasons why one performs better than the other, thats just a few reasons.
Did you go into the BIOS of the MSI and enable 8x AGP?
well from what i see your useing a AMD. so you cant take all the bandwith any how now i would bet you if you had a intel it would be much diff cuse of intels bandwith craving cpu. (p4) with 800 FSB
allenb1963, what i know, my motherboard will detect the 8X AGP Automatically because in manual book said like that.....
