Hi Everyone

 

I picked up one of these 1 to 3 pci x1 port multiplier from ebay and have tested with XPE.

 

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PCI-e-Express ... Swa-dWhMvm

 

Its based on a pericom chipset pci-pci bridge.

 

I tested with some syba sata port cards and a couple of nics based on intel and realtek chips that are all known to work with XPE and can report that it works ok and devices plugged in are detected ok.

 

To what point? Well its a potential add on for itx boards with only one pci x slot, so possible to expand drives/nics capacity. True that the performance may not be the fastest, but thats not the aim.
