ATI and Nvidia to support 3GIO

ATI and Nvidia is to support Intels 3GIO, successor to the PCI and AGP ports, bus and controllers.

Nvidia has signed up to support the upcoming 3GIO PC I/O specification, joining its arch-rival ATI as a backer of the Intel-sponsored standard-to-be.

As we mentioned yesterday when we covered ATI’s statement of support, since 3GIO will define the successor to both PCI and AGP slots, it’s essential that anyone who makes add-in cards can pokes their nose into the specification’s definition process.

Is this the end of AMD’s HyperTransport bus? Time will tell.
