  • PCI Express

    Nice little "preview" of this new technology that will replace both PCI and AGP slots next year :D

    http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1087

    The PCI-Express bus will no longer be a single parallel data bus through which all data is routed at a set rate. Rather, an assembly of serial, point-to-point wired, individually clocked ‘lanes’ each consisting of two pairs of data lines will carry data upstream and downstream. As the technology goes to market, each of these lanes should be capable of a 2.5Gb/s data rate in each direction. The overall sustained transfer rate roughly equals 200MB/s.
    Check it out!

    When I have a Serial ATA, PCI Express, AMD 64 Socket 939 based PC, I'll be one happy man... :)

        What'll be the main bottleneck on PC performance then?

            the user :? :D

            But then HDD's are still at a snail pace of 60-70mb/s thats so poor compaired to the 3 to 6gb/s for memory (daul)

              Sooo, we need 100gig flash storage to be made affordable...

                now that WOULD rule

                There are some solid state drives around, but you said Affordable so...er....:(

                they also die fast aparently

                  No...the main bottleneck will still be memory speed, as only the CONTROLLER operates at the CPU speed, not the memory. The best memory we have today goes to around DDR600 when OCed, 550 non-OCed.

                  Besides the memory...YES the Harddisk still runs at a comparatively pokey pace.
