Here only in the prototype sense.

It goes on to explain that actual cards won't be shipping till mid-year.

We will see how long it takes the hardware to find its way main stream. I never use new technology (on the PC side) unless it has a revision number higher than 1.? ;)
From the looks of the bus video editing will be the most benefited from the increased bandwidth both ways. I think now you will see real time on the fly editing through this type of bus.
At the moment all the new PCI-X cards will have to be brought up to par (no pun) with decent drivers and OS support. Looks like this little slot will do what the PCI slot did to the ISA slot eh?
I would let the dust settle till next year before a new card that is PCI-X just to be safe.
