I was curious about how much a real-world difference it makes, putting a high performance graphics card in a 16 lane slot vs. a four lane slot, and how this information could inform the possibilities of using Thunderbolt for external graphics cards.

So I spent a couple of hours swapping graphics cards in a Mac Pro tower, running some benchmarks, and I wrote up what I found  -

Interested to know what you all think.
