I have to wonder why?
I would guess it's primarily to prove it can be done - "For me I saw someone else saying there was a possibility I just had to try it!".
If it wasn't for Riley and similar people, with the skills and ability to do it, a willingness to try; we would never know whether idle musings can be turned into reality or what the effort, gains and limitations in doing so were.
The technology media seem to have seized on "PCIe graphics card on a Pi" aspect, and probably because it is good click-bait, but that does not seem to have been Riley's primary goal.
Trying a graphics card does however make sense, and it's a natural progression, that having broken out PCIe, one would see just how far one could push it, how "full-blown PCIe" one can make it.
