ASUS GART DRIVER
AGP and system memory are not used unless absolutely necessary. Please note that the size of the aperture does not correspond to performance! After many long discussions with VIA and ASUS, who of course blamed each other for the problem, we still had no resolution over 2 months after the release of the board. Got an Asus P4Rvm with onboard radeon , but i use an radeon xt card with Catalyst 4. The aperture size also determines the maximum amount of system memory that can be allocated to the AGP graphics card for texture storage. The time now is

The GART allows the graphics card to see the memory region available to it as a contiguous piece of memory range. This is because the graphics card will have more local memory to dedicate to texture storage. Unfortunately, it is very common to hear people recommending that the AGP aperture size should be half the size of system memory.
Thanks, you made it clearer to me. Got an Asus P4Rvm with onboard radeonbut i use an radeon xt card with Catalyst 4.
Please note that the size of the aperture does not correspond to performance! Features were plentiful, layout was mostly well thought out, and stability was gaet notch. What are GART drivers?
It is recommended that you keep the Graphics Aperture Size around 64 MB to MB in size, even if your graphics card has a lot of onboard memory. Finally on May 12,VIA released version 4.

AGP was to allow the graphics card access to the main system memory pool and treat the system ram as being on the gzrt allocation section as video ram – ie, the first 4mb would be on the card, the next 28mb used would be in system memory, with the difference being transparent to the game using the memory.

This is because the AGP controller needs a write combined yart area equal in size to the actual AGP memory area uncached plus an additional 12MB for virtual addressing. The time now is Some users will have to bear in mind that while different GART drivers might install OK on their system, there’ll usually be one out there that is more stable or more feature complete than others. If your graphics card has very little graphics memory 4 MB — 16 MByou may need to create a large AGP aperture, up to half the size of the system memory.

On the contrary, a smaller AGP memory space will be required. Of course this ended up not being the case [lucky for us], but AGP transfers are still tied into this memory allocation system, even if they don’t actually make any great use of it. The premise behind this is that the prospect of being stuck with an old version of the VIA GART driver just doesn’t sit too well with us as you never know when VIA will introduce an important feature or fix.
After many long discussions with VIA and ASUS, who of course blamed each other for the problem, we still had no resolution over 2 months after the release of bart board.
Not aware of any similar issues with Intels own chipsets though. I noticed this after some problems during some games.

You also need to calculate the final aperture size by doubling the amount of AGP memory space desired and adding 12MB to the total. The other day I have been busy reinstalling everything on my wife’s pc, because it was getting very slow.
The GART drivers will basically turn on use of AGP features specific to your motherboard chipset, as opposed to slower or emulated features in the generic driver. Although it is very common to hear people recommending that the AGP aperture size should be half the size of system memory, that is wrong! Log in Don’t have an account?
ASUS P3V4X / VIA AGP GART Performance Explored
We had originally tested with the then-current 4. Now, why should we use such a large aperture size when most graphics cards come with large amounts of local memory? We have sent you an assu to enable you to verify your email address. However it’s not clear to me what they are. Increasing it to gargantuan zsus will not improve performance. This reduces the need for AGP memory. While various BIOS updates were released and ssus circulated that the issue had been fixed with the new “fast-writes” feature of BIOSwe were never able to duplicate these findings in the AnandTech lab.
I didn’t do it until now, but now I wonder if I should have. I hope someone can explain it in a few words.
