Battle of the Titans 2: Still, the later i was considered the best Pentium III chipset because it offered a better feature set and very similar performance relative to the BX. With that, the last real argument against BX should be resolved. This gets touchier with higher clock speeds. Actually, most cards seem to be able to do this, but no manufacturer will ever guarantee it.

The higher end GX chipset released in June that was originally intended for servers and workstations has this support. However, this inflicted a performance penalty on graphical performance since PCI has significantly lower bandwidth chhipset than AGP.

The official part number is BX. However, the results of our Solano reviews showed that it’s hard to find any benefit from this. Back in February we took a look at the three AGP modes. But always think about the core speed: Finally, the unsupported Tualatin-core Pentium III could be used with an adapter and various modifications, with varying degrees of success.

Battle of the Titans 2: This gets touchier with higher clock speeds. If you are not sure whether your memory runs stable at MHz, you better get real PC modules, preferably CL2-types.
You processor must run stable at MHz system speed. It was pretty clear that you have some performance increase over AGP cnipset when using the faster 2x mode. Expendable Timedemo Page Ironically, the BX offered better performance than several of its successors. Actually, most cards seem to be able to do this, but no manufacturer will ever guarantee it. With that, the last real argument against BX should be resolved.

The success of the BX chipset has caused various software emulation and virtualization packages to use it as part of their virtual system. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Nevertheless you should not care much about the interface.
