    Missing Info about Ali AGP

    The Rivatuner "Enable ALI AGP" tips work fine for me +2000pts for 3Dmark2k1se. But i get this boost only after i update my "AliAgp driver" direct from ALI WEB PAGE and i update my MOBO bios too. Those 3 lil detail fix all my Videocard problem since the 40.72 driver set... well i hope this can help few guys here :D

    yeh, that is working great for people with ali, but for all of us that got other chipsets that of course doesn´t work.
    As far as i know, the AGP acceleration is enabled by default on my computer, i850 chipset.

    AGP Acceleration is 1x 2x 4x and 8x(for those with newer boards)

    its just plain stupid for someone to recommend that you turn a 4x agp board down to 2x as you'll be lucky if you can even play any of the games from the last couple of years. and in fact may possibly end up getting error messages saying that the game cannot find a compatable video card because it needs 4x to run.

    on the other hand, its fine and to turn an 8x agp board down to 4x simply beacuse 8x is NOT even really 8x its more like 5x. and 8x at this time is very unstable.

    Well the solution kinda works for me, ive got an Ali Chipset and an asus GF4 ti4200 128 meg, the only prob is that it makes my PC very very unstable, it crashes seconds after starting any game when i use the tweak. After investigating the Ali website it appears that the tweak enables AGP texture accelleration, hence the big speed boost. i can run the 1st test in 3d mark and i see a 50 fps increase in that test, but it crashes on the second

    Anyone have an idea on how to fix this problem, the boot would be great if my PC didnt crash when using it. Ive tried 3 diff Ali AGP drivers, and 5 diff detonators but nothin works

    6555,, sounds like my old scores before i tweaked the card with nvhardpage.
    also your biggest problem is that Intel D850EMV2 motherboard you have the intel 850 chipsets SUCK MAJOR A$$!!!! the 850 i had is about the worst motherbpoard for performance i have ever owned.
    grab an 845 or your better off actually grabbing a nice asus board.
    i can just about guarentee it will run WAY WAY faster.
    try the card in a buddies machine that is different from yours. i bet it runs better.

    i have detonator 44,03 driver installed and rivatuner cannot find a matched database, i tried with the nvidia WHQL Certified drivers 30,82 (couldn't find any other), but this one does not recognise my 3d card (gf4ti4800)
    what to do?
    thnx in advance ;)
  13. GooferZz

    GooferZz Guest

    @ tigertailz, if the 3d bench u have tested your system with is 3d mark 03, it gives a very bad idea, try ut2003 flyby or 3d mark2001, much more reliable

    Where can you get the newest drivers for the motherboard. I went to their website but could not find help. If i got my computer a year ago christmas, would there be new better drivers out? Would these drivers just make the computer boot up faster or make it more stable? Also, how do I know which motherboard i have....? Thanks for answering these stupid questions.

    Hi my gf4 cant handle RTCW (fps). I think i got the problem down to in properties it says its only running at x2 agp when it is a 8x card and im sure my motherboard supports 8x also.
    However my bios doesnt seem to have any agp options!
    Anyone got any clue how to change this, i have read a lot of the other posts on here where some people getting similiar problems do i need rivatuner or something..?

    Hi, Im new to this forum and Im kinda noobish when it comes to hardware.

    I have AMD 2100+ thoughrbred B, 256 DDR333, and an MSi Ti4200 8x 128 on a MSi K7N2 mobo model MS-6570

    I flashed my Bios lately through an automated MSI program.
    After i formatted my HD, I noticed problems with my PC performance which some of them I fixed when I realised my CPU was running as a 1500+ (it was on 100hz instaed of 133 in bios)

    Now I think my PC is messed up because :
    3dMARK 2003 runs even worse than before
    and some other low performance stuff i noticed in games

    I loaded the 3Dmark2003 display info and it says the following nottable things about my chipset:

    Model MS-6570
    BIOS Vendor Phoenix Technologies, LTD
    BIOS Version 6.00 PG
    BIOS Release Date 08/12/2003
    BIOS Properties Plug and Play, Flash, AGP
    Revision 3.0
    Rate 4x, 8x (4x enabled)
    Available Rate 0x0000000c
    Selected Rate 0x00000004
    Aperture Size 0 B
    Sideband Addressing supported (disabled)
    Fast Write supported (disabled)

    1. Is sideband addresing disabled normal ? if not how do I change it ?
    2. Is fast write disabled normal ? how can i enable it if not ?
    3 Agp rate 4x enabled ? Isnt that wrong since my GC and my Mobo support 8x ?? How do I change that ?

    From bios I changed AGP apperture size to 128 (it was 64) . Did I **** up? Do i need to put it to 64 again ?

    I cant describe how grateful i will be on any help you could give me . . . I am trully desperate and disappointed by PCs in general as of now :(

    Thank you in advance

    P.S. What scores I should be gettin in 3dmark2002 and 3dmark2003 with this system ? any Ideas ?
    P.S2. I have rivatuner but havent used it cause I didnt understood it.

    should the graphics apeture size be the same as your cards, have a GForce 4 ti4600 128mb, in the bios it`s set to 256, also in this thread, there was something about IRQs, my graphics card is on the same one as my soundblaster live, just like to know if any of the above could be holding things back and if so how do I change them.
    any help very much appreciated. Mick-S
