What is AGP Pro?
AGP Pro was launched in 1998 as an AGP interface extension specification for advanced workstations. AGP Pro bus is a specification that provides a direct connection between the graphics adapter and memory. It has a larger slot, with more voltage pins for high-consumption 3D video cards. The AGP Pro is compatible with the previous versions of the AGP bus.
AGP Pro delivers additional power to video cards, includes an extended connector, thermal envelope, updated mechanical specifications, and I/O bracket.
AGP Pro slots are slightly longer than standard AGP slots. AGP Pro slots are able to supply more power to demanding high-end workstation graphics cards.
