[Herb Sevush] "Is there any reason to believe that you couldn't use more cards if you needed more ports? Also under what configuration would you need more than 1 daisychaining Tblt port if you also have multiple PCIe slots available?"

I'd assume each card will need to have DisplayPort looped into it, which might get annoying with multiple cards. Unless Intel has dropped the 'all Thunderbolt ports must carry video' requirement as well, or there's some other scheme to get video on these ports.

As for why you'd want more than one port... there are enough Thunderbolt devices out there that don't have a passthrough port that just having a single port will be a bit annoying on a workstation. This includes a bunch of stuff that the presence of PCIe slots doesn't really reduce the need for, like external drives.
