I was wondering how much bandwith the Banshee actually uses. And the V5 6000 - I've seen people making V5 5500s for AGP 4x by cutting into the connector, but. As you can read here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_device_bandwidths#Computer_buses
apparently AGP 2x has the same bandwith as PCI-X 66 MHz, 64-bit. But I know Banshee was also made for the regular PCI, 32-bit, 33 MHz, which is behind AGP 1x.
My question would be if the Banshee would get bottlenecked by PCI Express x1.

Banshee is less powerful than voodoo2, and voodoo2 runs great on regular PCI; so i think agp 2x is fast enough for banshee

my PC:
AMD Athlon64 3200+ - ASUS K8V-Deluxe - 1GB DDR400 - 3DFX Voodoo 5 5500 PCI

So you don't know that Quantum 3D made an AGP version of the Voodoo 2 because AGP had 66 MHz and so it ran faster (you needed a PCI video card for 2D).

This card have 2 voodoo2 on the same board, so the bandwidth requested is greater

my PC:
AMD Athlon64 3200+ - ASUS K8V-Deluxe - 1GB DDR400 - 3DFX Voodoo 5 5500 PCI
