    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Also you need to remember under win xp he is limited to dx9 which in turns shadows all of the vid memory to system memory. So with a 1 gb vid card and lets just say he has 2gb of memory. Dx9 is going to take 1gb of system memory for shadowing of the gpu, so he will just have 1 gb of ram left to runs the os and programs. If he plays a demanding game or run a demanding program he could possibly run out of system memory. win vista and 7 use dx 11 so it is no longer a problem. Just adding this as this may be the reason he is choosing win vista or 7 over win xp.


    Without knowing complete system specs we are all just guessing but I will vouch for eidairaman1 as he has done some intensive testing of just this. Agp systems with win vista and win 7. He does know what he is talking about here.

    I used to run a AGP system with a AMD FX-55 or AMD 3000+ (OC'd to 2.8Ghz) kitted up with 2GB PC3200 DDR Ram and a bad ass x850xtpe. I ran Windows Vista and Win7 on it.

    I could care less about WEI scores. but I managed to run L4D, guild wars and a shit ton of other modern games at max settings if not on high or medium.

    WEI dont mean shit to me so long as I know it performs and performs well.

    (the board i was using was a MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum - Nforce3 Ultra chipset)


    :EDIT:

    Oh it worked fine with Windows Aero.

    Weird score, I get 4 on mine if memory serves right. I'll run a few benchmarks tonight.

    Ya Aero wont run. He needs a proper AGP GART DRIVER for the board. Sometimes a format helps aswell.

    I know that the AGP bus doesn't represent a meaningful penalty for the HD4670. Heck, even with the 3850 there isn't a lot of difference, about 2-3% compared to the PCIe version, which could be attributable to the bridge chip and not necessarily to the AGP bus.


    Here is the WEI for HD3850 AGP. I'll test with my HD4670 later tonight:

    And yes, we need to know what board are you using. 865 based boards work beautifully on W7 with no performance issues over XP, VIA boards work but there seems to be a slight timing issue with the AGP bus under W7 (you don'tget crashes or anything but you can tell something isn't right when you scroll down a page or something like that and the display lags) and nforce/ULi boards are all glithchy especially with AMD bridged cards.

    http://www.foxconnchannel.com/ProductDetail.aspx?T=Motherboard&U=en-us0000076&Language=en-us

    last Time Foxconn updated the drivers for this board was 7 years ago

    SIS doesnt have a Vista/7 Based GART either. Only a XP 64bit driver

    I actually scored better on my Sig rig with the 1950 Pro WEI score.

    Drivers for Uli Chipsets- Vista Beta

    Via has a Hyperion 4 in 1 which normally includes AGP Gart but its for Vista (Driver model between vista and 7 are nearly identical) just have to extract the entire file using 7 zip to its own folder to get to exact driver needed

    Here are the scores for the 4670AGP:

    [​IMG]

    and 3dmark06. For some reason Futuremark system info identifies the GPU as a 4650 :confused:

    So a SiS board then... haven't used one of those so I don't know what to expect.

    You said you're using 12.4 beta, right? have you tried with 12.4 release? That's what I'm using.

    I deleted 7 64 bits now and installed vista 32 bits. i had this useless license around and went for vista for graphics but with xp compatibility.

    I noticed because the filename had "whql" at the end. AGP hotfix drivers aren't WHQL.

    Reported.

    as long as the OP gets a working AGP driver and THEN installs the video card driver, it should be fine.


    if no such drivers exist... well, time to ditch the system or stick with an older/supported OS.


    this thread has turned into a real shitstorm, and it really shouldnt be over such a simple problem.

    think of the saying "when shit hits the fan"

    Then replace the fan with a hurricane, and shit with "far more shit than there should ever, ever be"
