    82580EB PCIe 1.0 compatability

    mjoyce@telecomsys.com

      I need a quad port Ethernet controller and was looking at the 82580EB chip as a potential solution.  My problem - I only have access to a x1 PCIe 1.0 bus.  Does that bus have enough bandwidth to handle 4x gigabit ports?  Is the 82580EB backwards compatible with PCIe 1.0?  I know most chips are but I wanted to confirm.

       

      Thanks in advance for any help.
