CeBIT: R6xx chips still compatible to Rialto AGP-bridge

ATI's Vijay Sharma (Director of ATI's Desktop Discrete Products) was interviewed by PC Games Hardware and he said the whole R600 lineup will be compatible to the PCIe-to-AGP bridge 'Rialto'.
NVIDIA's Product PR Manager Jens Neuschäfer on the other hand told them there will be no future AGP cards made by NVIDIA. At least as long as there isn't an OEM with a sufficient demand.PC Games Hardware 1 and PC Games Hardware 2

agp, r-6xx!!!

Oh Shit Look the photo the new r-600 is like a dual core CPU “http://www.pcgameshardware.de/?article_id=571646”, and available in agp-pci-express bus
Thy not, agp is not bad in 8x version, give 1024mbyte transfer rate, pci-xpress-1 gives 2 Gigabyte t/r, the only problem Is that: all the agp computer have single core Cpu,ddr1....(low-mid-end system) you cannot build a hi-end System like a new generation pci- express 1-2 with all the other characteristics (multi-core, ddr2+.......)

Rialto is a chip that a agp card has to sorta convert the pcb from a pci-e one to agp, if im correct in thinking that? I do know that they get god damn hot

Rialto chip converts PCI-E signals to AGP signals.
