The PCI/PCI-X busses are located in the client, the applications server and the storage array controller.
PCI Express enhances reliability by implementing differential pairs for signal lines with greater noise immunity than high-speed parallel busses.
Thus it is most apparent in parallel busses where multiple adjacent lines may be switching in the same direction at the same time and inject a noise voltage onto a victim signal.
