Absolutely not, if it's not PCIe and the specs lie... Not cool. Why would they lie? Nothing has ever been marketed as actually being PCIe before... Apart from expresscard, and... That is a few lanes of PCIe, not as many as thunderbolt. It performed as advertised.
If it's PCIe, it's PCIe. No? Everything I've read so far indicates it's so!
In any event, no thunderbolt on Apollo
I too would like to see it in action, but you can't compare thunderbolt to FireWire or USB. They are protocols that connect to the PCI bus. Not PCI or PCIe themselves. They haven't even hit the latency / speed figures
of the PCI included in 486 machines (133MB/sec) - as the UAD1 was.
