that was my first thought when I first saw the pics, and I based that purely on the size of the PCB alone . . . it's rather small for what they're claiming the card is capable of . . . but until we can see some picks without the shield, or someone here on the forum buys one and dismantles it like I mentioned in the other thread, though, considering this card is carrying the "Fatal1ty" moniker, I doubt it has a chipset. Aside from, as bta pointed out, this card would work well with crossfire/SLI setups that block a viable PCI slot; the only other thing this card could have over the PCI X-Fis is a better processing speed through lower latency thanks to the increased bandwidth of the PCIE BUS as compared to the PCI BUS. But, if it is stouting the APU, and dependant on how efficient the PCIE <-> PCI translation is, somewhat higher latency could easily negate any increased processing performance. I guess we must be patient on some reviews to crop up . . .
