Question K8T800Pro with 6600 GT

Hi,

(6600 GT with 169.09)
is there any way to get NvAGP working on a mainboard with K8T800Pro Chipset? A Hack maybe? K8T800 (without the 'Pro') is listed as supported. Is there so much difference between these two?
It's really annoying, because AGPGART is so much slower!

thx

why do you think agpgart is so much slower?
How did you measure this?

with my old geforce 2 ti, i tried to measure the speed difference between nvagp and agpgart by the use of glxgears (3d) and the framerate of xaos (2d). i know of course that this doesn't give any reliable benchmark results at all, but it was enough to tell that the nvagp was at least twice as fast. so i guessed the same would apply for my new card.

but i think transferring these results to a completely different gpu and a different driver as well isn't that simple, is it.

so is there anybody with a k8t800 (w/o pro) who's tested the speed difference?
and another thing is: why by the way is there an extra agp-part in the new driver when there is already one in the kernel?

but since i'm not a gamer (got the card for free) and i can watch hd-videos now i guess it doesn't matter much. just a question of interest.
