    For those of you who don't know PCI Express is Intel proposed standard to replace AGP and PCI slots.

    It is *not* related to PCI-X which has about the same bandwidth and will be used mainly in servers. Also, PCI-X 2.0 should be released at about the same time with similar bandwidth.

    PCI Express is a serial I/O interconnect while PCI-X 2.0 is a parallel bus. PCI-SIG will be actively supporting/promoting both technologies.

    I do not know if PCI-X 1.0 is out now. Googling right now.
    Someday I would like to become knowledgeable so that I could do penance for all the stupid questions I have and have yet to ask.

    PCI-X 1.0 is out right now and is being used on some server motherboards.

    Here's an Abit workstation board with PCI Express, they also offer server boards with this new technology.

    Dual®Xeon™, Max 12GB Memory, 8x AGP, Gigabit LAN, Dual Channel Ultra160 SCSI
    The WI-2P, a dual Intel®Xeon™-based workstation board, features the latest Intel® dual-processor workstation architecture with higher frequency capabilities and a whopping 4.3GB per second of peak system and memory bandwidth. With the incorporation of dual channel Ultra 160 SCSI storage interface, gigabit LAN and 8x AGP Pro, the WI-2P is capable of delivering unprecedented computing and I/O performance to personal workstations for handling stringent graphics tasks such as 3D modeling/rendering, scientific analysis and engineering design. In addition, its capability to support optional 5.1 channel audio, S/PDIF connection, and a maximum of six USB 2.0 ports brings extra value to this thoughtfully designed workstation board.
