hey,
What are the new cards that are going to be available in the PCIE mobility slots? I know about the Radeon x600. Any others? and any opinions on them?

There's going to be 3 big ones:

ATI Radeon x600 Mobility
nVidia GeForce 6800 Go
NVidia Quadro FX Go1400

Does anyone have any info on what kind of adapters we could be looking at for the new PCI-E PCCard slot ExpressCard?

Anyone have a link to a site/thread with a review of the three, or previews for next gen?

I know that PCIE itself supports 16 pipes but do those 3 cards run 16?

That's sorta like saying a Radeon supports AGP 8x but does it actually use all that bandwidth. Or a HDD that supports ATA/133 or SATAn/150 but can it push the data through that fast.


But to answer your question, I'm assuming it will.
