Sideband Signaling

An extra 8-bits of addressing capability built into AGP which, in effect, allows the AGP graphics board to request information over AGP at the same time as it is receiving data over the 32-bit datapath of the bus. This is yet another way that AGP graphics board can create better efficiencies and improve overall graphics performance.
