I wouldnt lose sight of the fact that AMD also needs to start making MONEY. Given that their chips are a great bargain, and GPUs are not... I am not surprised... And kind of support them getting some margin where they can, within reasin.

If that extra slot requires extra lanes then it means PLX. If that is the case then they are very expensive indeed. That is why some of the dual GPU cards cost more than two separate cards, because they had their own PLX chips to guarantee X16.

Also it is highly likely there are 'slot' royalty fees too, which is probably why we are seeing less USB ports too (£1 a port, IIRC).
