[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - AGP Comp. Driving

Recommended Posts



Dear editor,




We have just posted the *BIOS Option Of The Week - AGP Comp. Driving*.




Quote : Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide,

affectionately known as the BOG. From a meagre beginning of a single page,

it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we

edition and the complete edition.


Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help

sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that

changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete

edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.




This week, we will be taking a look at the *AGP Comp. Driving* BIOS

setting. Here's an excerpt :






*The auto-compensation circuitry has two operating modes. By default, it is

set to automatically compensate for the impedance once or at regular

intervals by dynamically adjusting the AGP drive strength. The circuitry

can also be disabled or bypassed. In this case, it is up to the user

(through the BIOS) to write the desired drive strength value to the AGP I/O

pads. When you set this BIOS feature to Auto, the AGP drive strength values

are obtained from the auto-compensation circuitry. Normally, this is the

recommended setting as it allows the AGP controller to dynamically adjust

for motherboard impedance changes. However...*"
