Time change though.

Back then, there weren't as many consumer PCs

The business Q6x chipsets will still support the PCI bus though, if you're interested.
What about pci to pci-e brackets?

I'm not liking Sandybridge at all.

I think that should still work, but it still adds a little hassle though.

EDIT:

By the way, they were talking about P67, H61 and H67 but not about X68

Here at Intel, we've been alienating customers for over 20 years. To celebrate our amazing ability to alienate our customers, we're going to remove PCI support from our chipsets starting with the 6-series!

We don't care if you have to rebuy every addin card in your machine. Neither should you. Buy Intel.

I can think of HUNDREDS of devices that perform their full functions without needing anywhere near the full bandwidth of PCI.

I do think PCI needs to go eventually, just not yet.

Take the Sandy Bridge over Devil's Canyon to get to Skylake.

Honestly, who didn't see this coming? When you bought your PCI sound card did you not realize that you were buying a card with a decade old interface? Is it news to any that interfaces and technologies of computers change and older standards are readily switched out for new.

ahh, goody. i was waiting for this day. bon voyage old pall. it should make motherboards and chipsets cheaper not to have all those 32 bit traces for the pci slots. on the flip side. all the pci peripherals are going to be CHEAP!

i for one have been through the ISA PCI and AGP and just upgraded all my stuff to pcie with the new machine, so im not worried.

I agree, my wireless card and sound card (Not being the best) do their job without needing PCI-E for sure.
