Re: Any love for AM2?

The memory latency was really quite dreadful on my AM2 system. I had always wondered if the GeForce 6150 iGPU had anything to do with it, or perhaps the way it was plumbed in to the memory bus. I remember it being really slow for Windows Aero. Like, even worse than Intel GMA 3000 somehow. As others …

I'm using a PC Chips A31G (761GX) with a "fake" AGP, the card just behaves like a PCI card, at least the ones I tested did (9250, MX4000), still a nice option to have in terms of compatibility I guess, but not a good solution for performance. I think other than having a chipset with native AGP …
