Isn't it way too late already to join the fray?
Still nice to see such products coming up, although I have never seen such small GPUs oO

Oh if I had started mining Bitcoins with my old 770 back then

Those are PCI-E risers and not GPU's

Depends heavily on which flavour you're mining.

*facepalm* stupid me thought the cables were for power only, but they work as riser cables then, right? I only know the x16 ones

Does this use something like a PLX chip for extra lanes?

Most likely not.
12 GPUs with 1 lane each would be only 12 PCI-e lanes.
So less than one full GPU would use.

It's hard to say. In 2013 every thing came crashing down after a few months when the Block Chain Equations were broken and ASICs were developed to do the job.

Word on the street is Ethereum is "ASIC Resistant" if this turns out to be the case the current craze could be with us for a while.

Yeah you can get away with 1x speeds, because you don't need to move that many data, you are just doing computations. Those two molex plugs though are going to be essential to the motherboard
