|11/23/05 Is PCI Express Really Any Better Than PCI-X? - THG
"The performance difference between PCI-X and PCI Express in real life is relatively small, since the bandwidth that is offered by both options is rather ample to satisfy the requirements of RAID controllers with up to eight drives. "
08/29/05 Forget PCI Express, it's time for PCI Express 2 - the inquirer
"Intel told developers last week to be ready for PCI Express 2.Ajay Bhatt and Ramin Neshati, who work at the Intel Corporation, divulged architectural extensions for PCIe II, with products expected in 2007-2008"
07/20/05 AMD to Integrate PCIe - the inquirer
"If you were wondering what all those pins on S1207 were for, wonder no more. If you need I/O that scales with the number of CPUs, look no farther. If you want this from AMD, it will happen. If you want it from Intel, it will happen too, just 18-24 months later, *COUGH* Nehalem *COUGH*."
01/18/05 PCI Express boards are hard to build - the inquirer
"We don’t know what exactly is harder to make, but we know that everybody agrees that AGP motherboards are much easier. Can it be because PCIe lanes are not configurable and you can configure them in various configurations as you usually have 20 to 22 lanes? "
12/10/04 All aboard the PCI Express bus - Digit
"AMD partners Via and NVidia are both planning to roll out PCI Express-based products in the near future. Via has already announced its K8T890 and K8T890 Pro chip sets, and the company expects partners to begin shipping motherboards and PCs based on the products soon. NVidia has yet to make any formal announcements about the follow-up to its NForce 3 chip set"
11/16/04 SiS PCI Express chipsets SiS756 and SiS965 - pass PCI-SIG compatibility certification
Leading core logic chipset manufacturer Silicon Integrated Systems (SiS) announced today that four of its chipsets support PCI Express-specifications - SiS656, SiS649, SiS756 and SiS965 – have been certified by the global PCI standards institution PCI-SIG, and will be listed on the PCI-SIG website. The certification signifies that these new SiS chipsets meets PCI Express, a leading-edge standard specifically created for the next generation PC platform.
10/29/04 PCI Express' Slow Eclipse of AGP - Hardware Central
"The release of Intel's PCI-E chipsets was also accompanied by a dearth of compatible graphics cards, especially at the high end of the scale, as there seemed to be a lack of communication between the various hardware companies. Intel was also the only company at the PCI Express launch party: AMD and its chipset and motherboard partners preferred to take a wait-and-see approach, sticking with proven AGP and PCI slots"
10/25/04 PCI-Express: First looks and the future - OC Mod Shop
"PC expansion slots have come a long way since the old eight bit ISA slots, and now we’re going to take a look at their newest incarnation, the PCI Express slot. In this article I’ll be covering some of the technical details of PCI Express (or PCI-E for short) and how it stacks up with what is currently available on the market, and what this means to average users and power users alike"
10/08/04 - Picking Your Perfect PCI Express PC - PC World
"AMD partners Via and NVidia are both planning to roll out PCI Express-based products in the near future. Via has already announced its K8T890 and K8T890 Pro chip sets, and the company expects partners to begin shipping motherboards and PCs based on the products by November"
06/12/03 - PCI Express: Interconnect of the future - AnandTech
"It is designed to support multiple market segments and emerging applications, as a unifying I/O architecture for Desktop, Mobile, Server, Communications, Workstations and Embedded Devices. It is not just for the desktop, like the original PCI specification was designed to be."
