Well, the math is pretty simple:
Not many cards do 64 bit.
Most server systems did have multiple Sbuses and even desktops
now have all atleast two PCI buses.

You'll see more and more Sun branded PCI cards but you'll also find Sun
certified PCI cards. Sun was the main Sbus card supplier, but with PCI
there are many more to choose from.
