A high speed expansion slot introduced by Intel to speed up 3D graphics operations in Pentium based PCs. AGP provides a 32-bit wide POINT-TO-POINT data channel that enables a graphics card's processor to directly access the PC's system memory, bypassing the PCI system bus and the main CPU- bulky graphics data such as texture maps can be delivered straight to the GRAPHICS PROCESSOR at up to 533megabits per second (Mbps).
