naaah, not yet. i'm mainly focussing on finding low-power low-cost
integrated stuff, like the OMAPs, S5PC100s, and the IAD100HV
their 2010 roadmap for future products includes an integrated PCI-e
and a bit more, but it's not ARM based, it's an x86 clone.
server-capable stuff like the marvell CPUs are at the moment a biit
outside of my searching, and the desktop-type / portable / laptop
stuff doesn't really overlap with SATA / PCI-e etc.
