[Craig Seeman] "I'm not sure that GPU processing for grading and FX work needs to be passed out through the system, or maybe I'm missing something. I'd differentiate GPU as a system resource vs DVI as an output."

Well, then we went on to say that rendering on to the GPU, then passing frames back to the system via PCIe is sloppy and "slow". This means you'd render your GPU stuff, it gets passed back via PCIe to other resources, then shoe horned down the thunderbolt port. I was under the same moression as you at first, but after having that discussion, I'm not so sure. In a 10Gb system, Thunderbolt present a bottleneck to full length PCIe machines as all data and display info must pass through the thunderbolt controller.
