Whilst at an ATI shindig in old London Town last night, we managed to sneak off to the wazzeria™ for 5 minutes with a pre-release PCI Express board that the Canadian chaps were showing off. With no NDAs in sight (although the same couldn't be said for drunken ATI execs), we thought you might like a peek at what we saw!! The card itself is a Radeon9600, and is fully working. You can see a closeup of the interface. Previous pics to hit the net haven't had any labels on them. This is obviously a recent sample, dated as 10/10/03. We unfortunately had to sneak it back into the jacket pocket of an ATI rep before the night was done, but we think the boy Hexus may have gotten his sneaky little mittens on it. We shall investigate...In related news, ATI wouldn't be drawn on whether PCI-X would "really cheese people off" by forcing an upgrade path on them, after they'd all just bought top spec AGP cards. Recent discussions with Intel representatives suggested to us that the migration of users to PCI-X may be subtantially slower than you might think.
