Could you give me your advice about the structure of the sentence:

That gives a single channel nearly twice the bandwidth of the older PCI and an eight-lane slot a data rate comparable to the fastest version of AGP.

is like:

That gives a single channel + nearly twice the bandwidth (of the older PCI)
and
(that) (gives) an eight lane slot + a data rate (comparable to the fastest version of AGP).

Is this OK?

  • There needs to be some kind of punctuation or verbiage between slot and a. Or it should be rephrased. But it's ambiguous if the last part of the sentence is referring to only the last item or to everything, so it's impossible for me to understand the intended meaning. Also, among other things, I suspect there should be a with in front of twice, and some kind of noun after PCI and possibly AGP. – Jason Bassford Aug 6 '19 at 5:46

Yes, it is Okay. "That gives a single channel nearly twice the bandwidth of the older PCI and an eight-lane slot a data rate comparable to the fastest version of AGP." The meaning is a bit weird though. Try changing comparable to compared

    Comparable here is used in the sense of being on par or equivalent – Smock Aug 6 '19 at 10:21
