PCI-X addendum released

Spec likely to arrive by Q3

The PCI special interest group (SIG) today released its PCI-X addendum to its 50 members for them to assess. Members will have 30 days to add their thoughts before the SIG formally ratifies the specification, which is set to deliver faster bus speeds for graphics and other throughput including storage and Internet at up to 133MHz. According to the PCI SIG, its initial applications are likely to be in workstation and server products. Although Intel at first opposed the PCI-X extensions, it reluctantly agreed to the proposals earlier this year. ®
