The thing that saved them is that SB-E processors have a rediculus amount of PCIe graphics lanes ( 40 ) and even the AMD 7970 Ghz edition can't fully saturate 16 lanes of PCIe 2.0. Having PCIe 3.0 makes a much bigger impact in IVB since they only have 16 lanes of PCIe 3.0 (=32 lanes of PCIe2.0). In summary, I wouldn't worry too much about it at this point.
