Default Nvidia readies AGP based Geforce 8

According to a report at DigiTimes, Nvidia is preparing a new bridge chip which should enable GF8 series cards to work on AGP. The current BR02 chip was designed for G73 cards, but it's not compatible with the new DirectX 10 lineup. The new A05 version should be able to take care of G86, G84 cards and the new G92 and G98 based products.

More likely 8500GT/8600GT AGP than 8800 though :/

it's too late to make an AGP 8800 as there are already many 1950 Pros sold

Didn't stop XFX from making AGP 7900GT and AGP 7950GT cards. 8800 would outperform a 1950 Pro anyway.

Also it didn't stop the Nvidia driver woes, many drivers didn't work or wouldn't install for those AGP cards.
