    Will the NF200 chip allow full 16x bandwidth on all 3 of the slots?

    Would have been nice to see the 3rd gen compatability too considering Asus and Gigabyte have announced it already.

    Yup, should do.

    edit: ah.. actually maybe not, should be equivalent to more like 16,8,8. Both that's gen2, so equivalent of 32,16,16 gen1 PCI-E.

    So if a mobo manufacturer used the NF200 in a P55 you could get dual x 16 lanes? if so it completely negates the desire for a x58 for me

    the thing is the link to the CPU is still ONLY 16x, so would we still not have a bottle neck?

    It might help as without the NF200 chip if you had 2 pci-e slots they would operate at 8x. So with the NF200, best case card 1 gets data at 16x while card 2 is busy doing some processing then card 1 is busy doing some processing while card 2 gets data at 16x. I think the NF200 is the same chip used on nvidia 2 GPU video cards so the 2 pci slots can communicate between themselves at 16x while leaving the link to the CPU free (I'm sure I read there was a broadcast mode ie send data to the 2 slots at 16x speed - I might be making that up)

    Whether 2 slots at 8x rather than 2 slots at 16x sharing a link at 16x makes any difference in the real world ... I guess a review might help us on that.
