So, the name implies that we cannot expect anything new from these chipsets. Indeed, the only thing they actually add to Xpress 200 is the support for two graphics slots. As the originals didn't undergo deep changes, two PCIEx16 slots operate in the same way as in their competitor: x8+x8. In future we'll probably see chipsets with sterling x16+x16 for this mode. As for now, ATI engineers also limited themselves to a small update, as in the products of the direct competitor — NVIDIA nForce4 SLI differs from nForce4 Ultra only in its capability to switch between one (x16)/two(x8+x8) video cards..
