I am trying to scour for a good mobo for my next computer upgrade, and I am coming across more and more mobo with 8X AGP specification. On some of them I see 2X/4X compatible, and some not. And usually the ones without the compatibility listed are the ones I want.
Does anyone know if the backwards compatibility would be a common feature, or has to be speficied for that to happen?
Thanks in advance!

I have been pondering this subject myself and the info I have gotten is a bit sketchy at best. As far as the support for 1X 2X the answer would be no. 2X 4X compatability is determined by the AGP slot type used by the manufacturer. 8X AGP with an AGP Pro Slot seems to be the norm for most Boards.

Thanks for the info. I would take that unless there are more info on the mobo other than "8X AGP", I should assume that it is strictly 8X only, and not for the rest.

Also check the Video Card specifications, Most Manufacturers are includeing a compatability list.
