Default Re: IS there another meaning behind this sentence?

I wouldn’t be surprised if there were new HD cards coming from Digidesign. The new high end dual 2 GHz Apple G5 only accepts PCI-X cards. PCI-X has a much greater bandwidth than PCI – it removes a major data bottleneck. If I were Digidesign I would jump at this technology. It would also make sense to put more powerful chips on the HD cards as there are only 3 slots on the G5 (one of which will probably be taken up by SCSI). I expect the interfaces – the 96 I/O, 192 I/O, MIDI I/O etc will remain the same.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">yeah, i agree. i wouldn't be suprised if they came out with improved PCI cards soon.

yeah, i'd agree about the interfaces too; it is way too soon after HD originally got released for a full blown replacement of HD to come out anytime in the near future, so i'd be very suprised if the existing hardware i/o's won't still work with new PCI cards, if they do indeed happen.
