Default Computex: MSI shows X800XT board with AGP and PCIe interfaces

From Tom's Hardware Guide:

MSI displayed at Computex an ATI X800XT-based graphics card that integrates an AGP as well as a PCI Express interface. The X800XT chip commonly offers native PCI Express support only, but an added AGP bridge on the backside of the board, makes the "RX800 Series / Geminium VIII" an interesting solution for users who want to stick with AGP for now and upgrade to PCI Express sometime in the future.

MSI's card can also be used in a dual-graphics tandem, if users choose to upgrade to an ATI RD400/RD480 motherboard a Radeon X800 master card. (THG)

Just for marketing. People will think it's cool, then people will buy it.

I have come across too many problems with Dual memory type motherboard. (EDO with SD, SD with DDR etc), or Dual CPU Socket (SLOT 1 with Socket 370) motherboard. I prefer to go one way or another, but not in between when it comes down to my computer hardware.

It's great that this product is avalable. I will keep it in mind when I do have a customer that wants to get a video card to get him on his current and next computer.

But I think I will be going to full upgrade as appose to these partal upgrades that seem to come out and then be storly lived in between upgrades.

Main Rig - AMD FX-8350x8 4.0Ghz CPU, 4x 8Gb (32Gb) DDR3 Ram, Gigabyte GA-970A-D3, GeForce GT 970 4Gb, 1x 256Gb SSD\8Tb (3+2+2+1) SATA HDD, DVDRW, SB X-Fi, Win 10 (64-bit)
Asus N61JV-JX231V - Intel Core i5 3437u (1.9 - 2.4 GHz), 12GB, 640GB, 16" Display, nVidia 325M 1Gb, DVD-RW, Win 10 (64-bit)

these sort of ideas rarely actually get off the ground, and if they do, it is usually slow. they can be good ideas, but people just don't buy into it
