Latest document from Intel are revealing that Tyersburg DT platform that includes Nehalem generation CPU codenamed Bloomflield and X58 chipset will come with 2x 16X PCIe slots.Intel's Nehalem processor and X58 based motherboards should be available in early Q4 2008.
It will be up to the motherboard manufacturers but some boards might even come with four PCIe 2.0 slots with 8X enabling four Radeon HD 4870 cards work together.
The boards with two PCIe 16X slots will be enough for two Radeon HD 4870 X2 dual cards and as we said many times before Intel won't support SLI with this platform.
