    Plan was to multiplex more PCIE lanes using multiplexor chips, but that meant they'd have to design around it, so they had to make sure whatever chip they chose for their design had ample supply because they coudn't drop in an "alternative". There weren't enough from any supplier.

    tl;dr: They cancelled it due to the fact they couldn't source a reliable supply of PCIE multiplexor chips
