    Re: HOWTO:Nvidia AGP FastWrites and Side Band Addressing

    thanks. I can confirm this worked for me

    Driver:          AGPGART
    AGP Rate:        4x
    Fast Writes:     Enabled
    SBA:             Enabled

    Re: HOWTO:Nvidia AGP FastWrites and Side Band Addressing

    options nvidia-current NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1
    finally this worked for me.. I just had to put in nvidia-current

    Re: HOWTO:Nvidia AGP FastWrites and Side Band Addressing

    None of the solutions worked for me.

    AGP is enabled in BIOS , Initially I had PCI. (doh!!!!)
    AGP is supported.
    Fastwrite is supported. but NOT enabled
    SBA is supported and enabled.

    Hyperthreading is enabled in BIOS (this doubles the frame rate)

    No option in BIOS for fast write.??

    nivdia-current/_current or nvidia-new/_new both don't work. NOTE dash - and Underscore _ don't work.

    Geforce FX5600 XT 128 MB's

    Direct x 9.0 supported.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Hyperthreading will NOT double your framerate.

    Not all BIOSes have the option for fast write.

    FX cards dont use nvidia-current, you've got to use nvidia 173.xx drivers.

    Unhappy Re: HOWTO:Nvidia AGP FastWrites and Side Band Addressing

    nvidia_173.14.22 didn't break anything, or fix.

    I guess, fastwrite just isn't an option, even though its supported.

    Leave well enough alone, I broke the graphics driver twice, once trying to install a beta driver, 2nd time to make sure I knew what I did.

    Thanks for quick reply.

    On Hyperthreading, disabling reduced frame rate by 1/2 so sematics. Looks like its just disabled by default for my Video card. Card is only supported by legacy updates.

    Guide might be for lower setting Video cards??? (4 yr's old)

    No big problem, still a great guide regardless.

    If you've borked your nvidia drivers twice already (and I'd assume have tried to install nvidia-current) I'dpurge all the nvidia dirvers and start again.

    What?!?! You actually found something where turning on hyperthreading will double your framerate?

    That to me says that you've got no 3D driver installed (or it wasnt a 3D program), whatever you were using was light, and very CPU bound.

    Excellent. It not only accepted the FW and SBA, but it also acknowledges 4x capability instead of just 2x.

    Re: HOWTO:Nvidia AGP FastWrites and Side Band Addressing

    Hello,
    Ok, none of these options worked here. I am on ubuntu 13.04 nvidia driver 308.
    I have several clients that still have agp nvidia cards. On previous versions of Ubuntu, these instructions worked.
    Any help would be appreciated

    coz
