GART? What is that?

  1. Hi NG,

    i have installed the Gart-Driver on my WinXP, but Gart was disabled in Bios.

    Is it good to enable that? What does Gart do?

    Thanks for helping!

    PS: Board is K8N-E

    There is one setting called "GART error reporting" and
    the manual says to leave it disabled.

    For info on GART, there is this:

    Basically, the GART allows fragments of main system memory
    to be assigned addresses that make a linear address space for
    the graphics card and its transfers from/to system memory.

    The GART lives in the Northbridge. There is a definition in
    the 875 Northbridge datasheet:

    "GART Graphics Aperture Re-map Table. GART is a table in
    memory containing the page re-map information used
    during AGP aperture address translations."

    You can find more info by looking for "Aperture Translation"
    in the 875 Northbridge datasheet:
