Default VIA's PCI Express plans for late 2004

The K8T890 Pro is everything the normal variant is, but with one extra twist. It support dual PEG16X graphics cards on a pair of PEG16X electrical interfaces, but those interfaces share a full PEG16X lane implementation, giving each graphics card eight dedicated lanes. Four up and four down means 2GB/sec in each direction, concurrently, per graphics board. Think AGP8X in both directions, per card, in the same system. With NVIDIA's nForce4 touting the very same feature, almost in exactly the same way (possibly with some switching fabric between the boards and the PEG16X host on the northbridge), it'll be interesting to see how that all pans out.
