quote: PCI compared to PCIe x1 is not horrible at all. In fact it is about the same in terms of bandwidth.
quote: Not to mention that PCIe is point-to-point, whereas PCI needs to share bandwidth with all the other PCI devices on the MB and in the expansion slots. A single higabit Ethernet network adapter alone has the ability to practically use up all the PCI bus bandwidth.
