There has been at least one PVR generation between the kyro's and the SGX, and this was called the MBX. So you can pretty much forget it.

You do remember that i was one of the guys who wrote the original proposal to AMD, and that i was one of the guys writing/fighting for the radeonhd driver at the time. And you do remember the crap politics and games played around this, and how little of the original intentions remain today.

Well if you find an 10 euro AGP card let me know but I also don't want to change my Kyro card for that PC because it fully covers its usage needs and more. I do office jobs, I surf the net, I watch dvd's, I even play old 3D games or even newer less demanding, works without glitches, so why change it?

Search eBay for Radeon 9500 or Radeon 9550 and you will get cards for less than 10 EUR. 9600 sells for 15-20 EUR. Occasionally you will see a X700 AGP for little money too.
