PCI Express too expensive

THERE'S AN INTERESTING article over at EETimes going into the pros and cons of PCI Express. In case you missed it, PCI Express is being touted as the replacement for AGP. The article is by Vikram Karvat, the marketing director of ServerWorks. And he really lays into PCI Express. According to Karvat, it's expensive and far more difficult to implement than PCI-X, which is obviously his preferred technology. He makes some interesting points.

It's not certain that the points he makes are good enough though. It sounds like Karvat is making the old "640K should be enough for anyone" mistake. There's another old saying, you can never have too much processor power or hard drive space. You might as well add you can never have too much bandwidth to that.
