This is a much needed advancement as technology has since evolved. One point is compatibility. It must not be like Altium Design that prevents use of old data sets. It has to support old works

Oddly enough, I see advantages for it in small form factor PCs. There are some applications that I would like to use mini ITX motherboards on, but they are limited by size to a single expansion slot. Multiplex access to a PCIe 3.0 slot with an appropriate expansion card (USB 3.0, SATA III, 1394b, etc.) and it might be interesting. This also give a fast path for Light Peak, which can be used to offboard storage from the main box, among other things. Larry M.

This accompanies well with the upcoming high-speed ethernet standards, but I wonder whether achieving faster data rates will have a bearing on low level chip interconnect standards and memory access? Or is this already happening?

The article writes about that, the PCI Express 3.0, this is essential for high speed interfaces like 10G Ethernet, Multiple Ethernet Interfaces, High Speed Networking devices, Network Processors etc.

You can either invest in a pci-express motherboard,but if you dont have either pci-e or a.g.p (only pci) then i reckon you have a motherboard that uses sd-ram and this will mean you will have to buy a motherboard, http://xtremenowarnings.com/xtremeno-review-does-xtreme-no-supplement-really-work
