Hi,does anyone know how to turn sideband addressing on for a geforce2mmx card,it says the hardware supports it but is dissabled and cant find how to turn it on.

it will be disabled if either the mobo or card do not support it or the drivers think that it may cause instability.

rivatuner will let you enable manually but i would leave it off.there is no speed/performance gain to be had.

A sideband is an additional data path between the system memory and the processors apart from the main bus. It takes the address and command instructions from the main bus and sends them on a sideband to the system chipset. Sidebanding lets the graphics processor line up new data requests as the main bus continues to gather data. This increases the AGP bandwidth and speeds up data transfers.
