Albatron enables use of AGP 8x cards in PCI Express boards

Albatron has released a bridge card that allows users in an AGP 8x card in a PCI Express mainboard. The device breathes new life in a technology that will be phased out over the next year.

Existing AGP 8x cards simply piggyback on the ATOP card’s AGP-8x slot located on the top edge. The ATOP card is then plugged into the mainboard’s PCI-Express slot. The only other installation requirements are replacing the bracket on the AGP-8x card with an ATOP bracket and installing the appropriate driver.

Albatron believes its ATOP is a solution for “cost conscious users caught in the middle of the PCI-Express, AGP-8x transition.” Pricing of the device has not been announced. (THG)
