Their implementation is not able to work at all without an AGP GART ?
That's brain-dead ! what about all the 3D PCI cards out there ? And all
the machines that simply don't have a working AGP ? AGP should be an
optimisation, not a requirement !

I have all the details (I think) to implement support for the Uni-N GART
in the new Core99 macs, I'll give this a try one of these days. But that
would be plain stupid not to support "classical" operations via PCI.
