[Herb Sevush] "[Craig Seeman] "There's not likely going to be much R&D on the PCIe card side of things from hardware developers as they continue the shift to Thunderbolt."

That is a highly questionable statement."

But you offer no reasoned refutation.
I doubt you'll see much in the way of Mac GPU cards for example.
It seems RED may be moving to GPU support as an alternative to Rocket.

Given Apple's penetration into the Post market, it seriously cuts into margins for many developers of cards. Any card that doesn't need 8x or 16x will probably have Thunderbolt versions.

One can look at companies like AJA and Blackmagic and see expansion of Thunderbolt devices.

The demand on the Windows side isn't going to change much but Apple dropping out of the PCIe card market has to be a major hit for some hardware developers... unless they develop for Thunderbolt.
