    Better that than no PCIe at all, I guess.

    There're ARMv8 server boards with one or several PCIe x16 slots (from Gigabyte, HP, Avantek, E4 and others, mainly using X-Gene or ThunderX). In the sub-US$800 range there're (beside the LeMaker Cello with botched PCIe x16) at least these boards with PCIe x4:

    - Nvidia Jetson TX1 (Cortex-A57)
    - Nvidia Jetson TX2 (Denver2 + Cortex-A57)
    - Marvell MacchiatoBIN (Cortex-A72)
