The Intel® 440GX AGPset is optimized for volume midrange workstations and enterprise servers. As an evolution of the Intel® 440BX AGPset, the Intel 440GX AGPset performs optimally with the Intel® Pentium® II Xeon" and Intel® Pentium® III Xeon" processors designed specifically for workstation and server platforms. The Intel 440GX AGPset complements 100-MHz system bus and SDRAM designs producing top graphics and video performance, while preserving form factor and core compatibility with its predecessor, the Intel 440BX AGPset.
The Intel 440GX AGPset builds on the Intel 440BX AGPset with support for up to 2 Gbytes of SDRAM memory. The Intel 440GX AGPset satisfies the large data flow requirements of high-speed networks and large graphics files in advanced server-based CAD and other demanding design applications. Design flexibility, Intel high-performance processor support, memory, and Intel 440BX AGPset design collateral compatibilitythe Intel 440GX AGPset offers a seamless migration to the power and performance of Slot 2 designs.
The Intel 440GX AGPset allows developers to quickly ramp their Intel 440BX AGPset design expertise into workstation and enterprise server products. The two-chip Intel 440GX AGPset is both form-factor and core-compatible with the Intel 440BX AGPset. To support fast time-to-market product development programs, design collateral for the Intel 440GX AGPset is a superset of Intel 440BX AGPset collateral, and is supported by design guides for Intel Pentium II Xeon and Intel Pentium III Xeon processors, Intel's new line of processors for workstations and entry-level servers. Like the Intel 440BX AGPset, the new Intel 440GX AGPset operates on all popular operating systems, including Windows* 95, Windows NT,* and UNIX.*
