        • right parameters

          I use a hd3850 agp on my motherboard and consulting datas the results is different in confront of hardware features:

          256MB gddr instead of real 512MB
          32bit width instead of 256bit width.

          How to correct this values?

              • VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV670 AGP [Radeon HD 3850] (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
                Subsystem: Hightech Information System Ltd. Device 0028
                Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16
                Memory at d0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
                I/O ports at d800 [size=256]
                Memory at fbff0000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=64K]
                Expansion ROM at fbfc0000 [disabled] [size=128K]

                Kernel driver in use: radeon
                Kernel modules: radeon


                I've consulted again the vga parameters and I noted the 256 value is present although the memory is limited to 256MB value.

                • That's most probably the size of your AGP GART and not of the graphics cards. Run "dmesg | grep VRAM" to get the size of your graphics cards RAM.
