Hmmm why is that nasty, The M9 is a passively cooled Chip, has long term
support, and so building a 4 head card out of two of them isn't that
stupid. And using a PCI-PCI bridge on a card is not that different from
using a PCI-PCI bridge on a motherboard. Or where you revering to the
fact they used a PLX chip ?
