The G84 (8600) chip by Nvidia will be going AGP in April. This is big news for all you old school AGP users out there who would like to either get a little bit more horse power in their current set up or would like to upgrade to Vista with a little bit more ease.

The cards will be selling for around $125. This will replace the current AGP top end on Nvidias side the Geforce 7600GS. The chip is very AGP compatible so it does not need any converting chips to bring it down to AGP, similar to the 7600 and 6600 chips.

Here are some details on the chip.
