Default Albatronís PCI Express Bridge for AGP 8x Graphics Cards Reaches Stores

Albatronís ATOP(AGP-to-PCI Express) bridge card, which is supposed to allow usage of AGP 8x graphics cards with PCI Express mainboards, has recently emerged in some Japanese stores as a demo sample. Apparently, the bridge supports only NVIDIA-based graphics cards and only some of them.

The ATOP device from Albatron is based on NVIDIAís BR02 bridge that coverts AGP signals into PCI Express and otherwise. NVIDIA uses BR02 with its GeForce PCX and some GeForce 6800-series graphics cards to allow AGP 8x graphics processing units (GPUs) to operate on systems supporting only PCI Express x16 (PEG x16) bus and also utilizes on some GeForce 6-series graphics cards to let PEG x16 GPUs to work in AGP 8x systems.

Graphics card should be plugged into AGP 8x slot located on the top edge of the ATOP and then the whole construction should be installed into a computer with PCI Express x16 bus. Albatron notes that a special bracket should be used for ATOP and AGP 8x graphics cards
