So its straight in to knocking the new chip with the first comment. Would anyone like to explain how a RISC OS machine with a modest processor performance and no 3D software (i.e. games) avilable, is going put any appreciable load on the most budget PCIe 1x card never mind utilisng 4GB/s of 16x.

The point of PCIe is to allow access to modern cheap graphics cards, with some degree of future profing, now that AGP has become legacy, and the PCI cards that the Iyonix supports are becomeing rarer (although still available).
