    Thumbs up [RESOLVED] what voltage is AGP 2x

    I've got an ATI Radeon 9000 Pro 128 card in now, and my brother has an old 9800 Pro 128 he's not using.

    my 9000 pro supports 1x/2x/4x and my mobo is a 2x agp, and the 9000 pro falls back to 2x agp.

    the 9800 pro supports 4x/8x

    my question: is the 2x agp voltage 1.5v ... because the 9800 Pro supports 1.5v on the 4x agp, and was wondering if the card will just simply fall back to the 2x standard at the same 1.5v ?

    I was hoping the 1x standard was 3.3v and the 2x/4x is 1.5 ... being the 8x is 0.8v

    EDITED
    my mobo is an ABIT BH6 ... P3 @ 1GHz overclocked to 1.12 with FSB @ 112 instead of the standard 100 FSB

    Thanks for that amazing link, I was trying to google something like it, but couldn't find it anywhere!

    looking at the info on that page, I see I can't use the 9800 Pro with my motherboard. It has an Intel 440BX chip set and hence the 3.3v agp slot.

    thanks, you saved me from opening up my system and taking the card out to find it was all for nothing ...

    This site really rocks, BIG TIME!
    I'm glad I joined.
