I found this option in my BIOs asking me if I wanted to enable or disable AGP Fastwrites, and I was wondering what it exactly did since it doesn't say in my manual, and if it's best to have it disabled or enabled...
5- The Radeon cards do support FastWrites and they will work with it on
(on some machines), but it is not recommended, there is NO SPEED gain
when using FW, and this option will affect your PC's stability a LOT,
most game crashes and problems are because FW is enabled.
i just went in and turned off my AGP fastwrite... i liost 1000 points in 3dmark 2001, and 1200 points in 2k3... wtf? no performance gains? i was able to overclock slightly higher, but obviously not high enough to make up for the performance loss
