Nvidia Releases New AGP Card

Rumors that AGP is a completely obsolete slot ... well, they might not be completely exaggerated ... but at least Nvidia will release the 7800 GS for AGP (thanks ModPC). It's faster than it's 6800 ultra brother and apparently sports a moderately quiet fan. And here I didn't think I'd ever find a replacement for my fanless 6800.

I doubt that this is a sign of a turning trend though, and we'll see a new wave of high powered AGP cards. The hardware movement is still towards PCI-E. Still, it would be nice to see either ATI, Nvidia or both acknowledge that there is plenty of powerful AGP rigs still out there.
