Expansion cards do not differentiate 100MHz
capability. Only 66 and 133MHz capability is
available. The 100MHz option is only available to
133MHz cards plugged into slots limited to 100MHz by
Non-PCIX devices connect PCIXCAP to ground
PCIX 133 devices connect PCIXCAP to ground via a .01uF
PCIX 66 devices connect PCIXCAP to ground via a 10 K
ohm resistor in parallel with a .01uF capacitor

Further distinction is made by the host PCI bridge.
The bridge drives an initialization pattern on the bus
to inform the devices of what frequency they will be
A PCIX bus with a frequency of 100MHz, will drive the
following pattern on the bus during the rising edge of
I hope that helps,
