16000 on 3D Mark 2005 via AGP proves that there was never a need for PCI-E 1.0
 
I always knew, when refusing to downgrade to PCI-E, as all the people made fun of me, that I was in fact, remaining loyal to the superior graphics interface. :cool: I am still amazed though that I am getting nearly 16000 on my supposedly ancient interface. :clap: As I looked back in the 3d Mark 2005 thread, I noticed that many who chose to downgrade to PCI-E, weren't getting anything close to 16000 through the entire 7000 series PCI-E generation, and only matching my performance with the 8000 series PCI-E generation.

With PCI-E 2.0, now I'm sure you all will claim PCI-E is superior to AGP, but I bet in a couple of years, if a few HEROIC companies continue to remain loyal to AGP, they'll probably have a card that will match the current GTX260 & 280 PCI-E cards 3d Mark 2006 benchmarks, and AGP (lee) supported by Carl AS ROCK (nana2) Weather and E7200 Core Duo (French), will again be shown to be the superior graphics interface. :cool:

You have a Carl AS Rock Weathers 4 core dual sata2 motherboard and a French E7200? No wonder its so fast!

If you got a French Carl Weathers edition 8 core quad USB1.0 ISA video card I'm sure you could get 11ty billion in 3dmark '99.

Isn't it 2008? Who cares about 3D Mark 2005. :p

It meant nothing 3 years ago and it means even less now.

At the time the AGP 8x bus wasn't being fully used, the upgrade to PCI-E had more to do with simply moving to a better interface that had more expandability for the future, not so hard to grasp, but yeah, what the Capt. said.. lulz @ 3dmark

youre retarded.

everyone knows that AGP's down stream is comparable to PCIe's (earlier revisions, not so much anymore). the difference is the up stream (from GPU to Mobo/CPU). on PCIe it is about the same as the down stream, whereas AGP's up stream is minimal.

that's why you cant run SLI on AGP. not because they want to force you to go to PCIe, but because AGP couldnt handle it if it tried.

Also, guys: I just ran 3Dmark1990 and scored a billion. I knew my computer rocked. It's dumb though cause I still can't run crysis. ****ing game... :headexplode:

Not this joker again.

AGP IS DEAD! IT'S NOT COMING BACK! GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON!

Also, my 8800 GTX will run circles around your 3850, which means that any current generation card, the new 48x0 card series included, with eat you up and spit you out.

Also, the 38xx series was supposed to be competing with the 8xxx and 9xxx series of cards anyway, so why the **** are you comparing them to the 7xxx series of cards? They're like 2 years older than your card. Seriously dude, get your facts straight and quit this nonsense. AGP is gone. It was good, but it isn't anymore. 15000 on 3DMark05 is nothing. My 8800 GTX gets close to 20k. Any newer highend card gets a lot more. Upgrade to 2008, and realize that your system isn't that great. :headexplode:

[/thread]

EDIT: just checked my ORB record for 3DMark05, and I got 20.5k. Yea... it's that good...

Lol @ 3DMark1990 :p
