    Hi Everyone,

    I was just curious if anyone knew if and when there will be a mobo released for AMD that had PCI-E etc, also as well the new P4's with PCI-E - is there any performance or is it all hype for intel :p

    no, pci-x is the real thing. it has real backing, we've been using the older PCI slots for at least a decade, and that's creating a bottleneck in our systems. this is why AGP was invented for graphics cards. PCI speeds just didn't cut it. pci-x should go up to 16x with different sizes of the slots depending on the speed. and yes, amd will have motherboards supporting pci-x. check these out for more info on pci-x with amd motherboards. http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=15432

    no... pci-x is like a double size pci slot
    pci-e = pci Express

    wrong, there is no difference between pci-x and pci-express or pci-e. they're all the same thing. there is a size difference between different pci-express slots that are 1x,2x,4x,8x,16x (i think), but that doesn't mean the names are different, it's all either pci-x, pci-express, or pci-e, don't confuse yourself.

    PCI-X is used in mainstream servers only, providing a, still parallel, 64-bit bus, running at 133 MHz. PCI-X is backwards compatible with PCI. PCI-E is the new PCI-Express standard, providing a much faster serial interface, running at higher speeds than 133 MHz (I don't know the exact speeds). PCI-E isn't backwards compatible with PCI.

    Cool...thanks for clearing up the acronyms...lol. Now if someone can answer the original post regarding AMD and PCI Express, I'd be curious to know an answer myself. ;)

    Back to the main question. There are chipsets out there but nobody has announced an AMD MB yet. I did a search a week or 2 ago.

    the thing is that people have sort of become desperate for a replacement for the comparitively slow pci standard, and it seems that now that pci-e has been released, pci has suddenly become really really ancient. it certainly wont help amd sales until they get some pci-e mobos out there

    well thats just mho.
