I finally found the bit in the PCI-X spec hat mentions this:
(Section 1.8 "Bus Width")
| The following PCI-X requirements are different from conventional PCI:
| 1. All devices that initiate memory transactions must be capable of
|    generating 64-bit addresses.
| 2. Each device includes a configuration status bit that indicates
|    the width of that device's interface.

PCI-X also has a different command set.
It's definitely NOT just a PCI bus speed up.

thanks,
