right now, no faster than AGP 8X.
Technically, it's PCIX 16X, but there is no card that can use all that extra bandwidth.

If the 6800's and the x800's can't even use all the bandwidth that AGP8X has, how can it possibly use up PCIX 16X?

heh, just because they fit in the slot and they work with PCI-X doesn't mean that all the bandwidth is used. The 6800 that is for PCI-X, runs head to head with AGP8X 6800's. In theory, the PCI-X cards should run twice as fast, but they don't.

I know that but you gotta give them time to make real drivers and games for pcx. I think then you will see a big diff.

So you're being redundant fan boy.....you're now saying 'give them time' when he's already said...for now it's no faster than current standards..but will be in the future

Well, of course in the future there will be cards that will take advantage of the PCI-X slot's uber bandwidth, but just not right now. Maybe I didn't state that right earlier. Sorry for the confusion Nvidia fan boy.
