Not trying to pick holes, so feel free to ignore me. The P6T7 actually has *** 2x *** nf200 chips as well as the X58 under that rather large heatsink. Paragraph continues ....... Hmm. That's more than a little misleading. How about .... The P6T7 has seven physical PCI-E 2.0 x16 slots, although how many actual PCI-E 2.0 lanes will be allocated to each depends on which slots and how many are populated. Slot 7 will always have 16 lanes regardless of how the other slots are configured. Slots 1,3 and 5 (the blue primary slots) will be allocated 16 lanes each if slots 2,4 and 6 (the black, secondary slots) are not used. In the case that slots 1 through 6 are occupied, each will be allocated 8 lanes. So if you use 4x double width cards and plug them into slots 1,3,5 and 7, each will be allocated 16 lanes. If you use 7 single slots cards, slots 1 through 6 will be allocated 8 lanes, and slot 7, 16 lanes. I'll shut up now.
