NVIDIA bridge chip to deliver AGP GeForce 8 cards

Due to strong demand from emerging markets and Internet cafes NVIDIA is planning to roll out a new bridge chip in October which will bring its GeForce 8000 series to AGP.

NVIDIA already has a bridge chip to bring the GeForce 7600 GPU to the AGP platform but this old BR02 chip isn't compatible with the GeForce 8 series. DigiTimes writes a new A05 revision will feature support for the GeForce 8600, GeForce 8400 and even for the upcoming G92 and G98 GPUs.

AMD is also going to roll out some new DirectX 10 AGP cards - the firm had some problems with their Radeon HD 2600 and Radeon HD 2400 for the AGP platform but they should finally become available in October.
