Is 4x agp that much better than 2x?

I was wondering about the differances between 2x and 4x. My mobo seems stuck at 2x despite having 4x capability.

No, the 4x isn't that much better than 2x.

You can read up on it at Ars

I agree, but I only know this for older video cards, I don't know that it won't make a difference on the newer generation cards...

I still think the same applies. Maybe the difference between the two is bigger now than then - but not by much I reckon.

Very close, the Matrox cards will be 4x and 8x (if I remember correctly), as well as the sabres...

I know I have come out better by dropping to 2x and getting a better oc out of the card where I couldn't get it with 4x enabled...

That sounds likely Samuknow. Too bad I haven't been able to test this myself, since I'm STILL on the old BX board. D@mn I need an upgrade!!
