My god, IB bandwidths always confuse me. :-)

I thought IB SDR was 10 GB/s signal rate and 8 Gb/s data rate. How do  
you squeeze ~1400 MB/s out of 8 Gb/s?

I see you offer Lx cards in PCIe 4x and 8x. Again, PCIe is encoded at  
10bit/8bit so the data rate is 8 Gb/s. So the above value is for your  
8x cards only, no? The thread is about your 4x cards, no?

Are there many PCIe Gen2 motherboards yet?
