Your guess is as good as mine when it comes to figuring out where the guys at The Inq get their info. Some of it turns out to be dead on and some of their stuff turns out to be bunk at times.

They are now reporting that NVIDIA has an AGP version of the G84 GPU that will be DirectX 10 compliant. This means that users of old AGP systems will be able to run DirectX 10 applications and Vista. This card is assumed to be the replacement for the aging 7600 GS.I have to say here that I seriously doubt an AGP based machine, even with the 8600 AGP as The Inq calls it will be running any of the upcoming DirectX 10 video games like Crysis. I don’t see a rig old enough to need an AGP card having the muscle to perform on high-end titles of today, much less those super high-end DirectX 10 games on the horizon. Story via The Inq
