Really?  That's cool.  But it has to depend on the speed of the slot,
right?  I mean, the x1 PCI Express slots are only like 1" long, and a
PCI-X slot is huge.

Hmm -- I'm not so sure I believe you.  For example,


The PCI Express and PCI-X slots are separate on that one.  But it's
the only one I checked.  :)

Anyway, regarding Doug's point on 533 MHz PCI-X, the fastest card I've
actually seen is 64-bit 133Mhz, but perhaps they're building them to
the faster spec now.
