    Yes, the x16 slot is connected by only four lanes, as was announced last year.

    So the X5000 PCIe x16 slot only has 4 PCIe v2 lanes connected, effectively meaning 1/2 of the theoretical bandwidth of the x16 PCIe v1 slot of the PowerMac...?

    According to the block diagram on page 8, the four switched lanes have nothing to do with the x16 slot, but are shared via PCIe-PCIe switch between x4, x1, x1 and Xorro slots as well as PCIe-PCI switch (for two PCI slots).

    Ah, I managed to scroll past that block diagram! ;-)
