Quote:
HIS is taking a small detour in its video card manufacturing production, stepping away from the ordinary and producing a card that won’t take the computing world by storm, but will be a godsend to those who need it.

1) Most cards don't even saturate a 8x bus so why have a 16x card?
2) Allows freeing up of other 16x slots for other GPUs or add on cards.

there are some situations where it would come in handy. Like on an ITX mobo that only has a 1x PCIe.

Looks interesting, and as the article says, would be perfect (pending on what temps it runs at but probably rather cool) for those HTPCs. I wonder what the ppd is on that (hey, if you have a spare PCI-1 slot, may as well put it to work folding) and the cost (if it'll be around the same or slightly cheaper then its x16 time brother).
