AGP Stands for “Accelerated Graphics Interface”. AGP can be an advanced port created for 3D accelerators and Movie cards.

AGP launched in August of 1997 and created by Intel. Accelerated graphics interface presents a passionate level-to-point route which allows immediate access the machine memory to the graphics controller.

Finally, AGP allows (optional in AGP 1.0 and 2.0, mandatory in AGP 3.0) sideband addressing, meaning that the address and data buses are separated so the address phase does not use the main address/data (AD) lines at all.

There are some proprietary systems incompatible with standard AGP; for example, Apple Power Macintosh computers with the Apple Display Connector (ADC) have an extra connector which delivers power to the attached display.
