Compared to what exactly?
Which application do you use that manages to saturate a PCI-E 2.0 16x link running at ~16GBps FD *? (Let alone a soon to be released ~32GBps PCI-E 3.0 16x link)

- Gilboa
* Keep in mind that a *single* PCI-E 2.0 8x slot can handle a dual 10GbE link at full duplex without breaking a sweat.
