What PCI-Express is really meant for is to replace AGP. AGP 8x doubled the bandwidth to 2 GB/s to achieve a meagre 5% more peformance. With 128MB+ VRAM the cards don't require that bandwidth. What is needed is a faster bus. The bus at 66MHz is a bottle neck for fast graphic cards today. So the question is not "will it come?" the only question is "when will it come?"
