AGP Video Pipelining
One performance enhancing benefit of AGP is its ability to pipeline requests for data.
Pipelining was first used by modern processors as a way to improve performance by letting
the sequential parts of tasks overlap; see
here for a full description of how it works. With AGP, the video chipset can use a
similar technique when requesting information from memory, which improves performance.
