Yes, they are seen as individuals like nics. I run two X100P cards.

However, you may run into major problems with interrupt sharing with 
that many cards. In my system, I have 5 PCI slots. Slots 1 and 5 share 
the same IRQ, so I can only use one card in either of those. Slot 3 
shared one with the video card, which caused a hard freeze every time I 
loaded the kernel module for them. That left room for three cards max, 
two with the nic. All systems are different, of course, so you may have 
to play around to see what works for you.
