AGP Interface

The AGP interface is in many ways still quite similar to PCI. The slot itself is similar physically in shape and size, but is offset further from the edge of the motherboard than PCI slots are. The AGP specification is in fact based on the PCI 2.1 specification, which includes a high-bandwidth 66 MHz speed that was never implemented on the PC. AGP motherboards have a single expansion card slot for the AGP video card, and usually one less PCI slot, and are otherwise quite similar to PCI motherboards.
