The advanced graphics port (AGP) bus allows the graphics controller to directly access texture map data from the main memory rather than having to move it to the graphic controllers' local memory first. This helps the system increase the speed of processing graphics and allows for a use of a larger portion of memory by "borrowing" storage for texture maps from main memory.
