It's just newer and better technology. Check out these links:

i just got a 6800 Ultra Overclocked for my AGP board in my other computer and it dose fine,the AGP has no bottleneck for the 6800 and the 7800 is really only faster when it is used in SLI.....so AGP even thought the new 7800 is (right now) not for AGP,AGP will be around for awhile.....To may people have it for them to close it out now...

that is what i think......

AGP has enough bandwidth for current generation video cards but they decided to fix the ever-approaching problem before it was too late. Thus, PCI-Express was born.

Also, the 7800 GTX is quite a bit faster than the 6800 Ultra. Benchmarks may look a bit deceiving because the 7800 GTX has better image quality.

AGP is being phased out. As far as I know, no new graphics cards will feature AGP.

I heard some scuttlebutt of a new AGP architecture comming out to replace PCI-Express. Don't know too many details, too lazy to search on Google.
