ATI admits 9700 Pro bug with AGP8X

The Radeon 9700 Pro, boasting the highest performance card on the market is packed with features, oh and undocumented free bugs too.

If you have recently bought one of these cards you are unlikely to be able to run it at the 8X AGP which was boasted by the company at launch. Finally ATI has admitted there is a problem with the card and it has engineers looking into it.

This is what ATI says:

    "In certain cases, after installing the RADEON 9700 PRO 128MB in an AGP 8x capable motherboard, the system will not post, or boot up. Not all AGP 8x motherboards are affected. Some customer's have reported that lowering the AGP transfer speed in some instances, will allow the system to then post. ATI Engineering has been advised of this issue and is investigating. Any updates will appear on this page when they become available."
