[brightsideofnews.com] PCI-e 3.0 featured with msi Z68A-gd80 computex - Page 2

post #11 of 41
I don't know the layouts, but this 115X might allow for backwards compatibility between 1155/1156.

Damn it would suck if this isn't backwards compatible.

Pretty much this.

PCIe connectivity is on die. You can change the mobo all you want, it's still only going to be PCIe 2.0 speeds. Unless they changed the chipsets 8 lanes from 2.0 to 3.0, I don't see anything accomplished here. Oh, and pretty sure 115x is just 1155. They've had 2011 and 115x instructions on their youtube page for some time.
Why upgrade?

From what I've read, PCI-E 3.0 should give about a 50-60% increase in data transfer rate over 2.0. The extra efficiency that comes along with this will be a nice benefit, but is there anything out there that is saturating the current standard's bandwidth?

yes strange.

well, there is no sign for anykind of expansion card with pci-e 3.0. yet! XD

its not about video cards. its for lowering costs of motherboards and chipsets that would get just more and more pci-e lanes to feed raid cards with ssds on them. with pci-e 3.0 you can feed more ssd's with same lanes count.

this would be so FTW I cannot express how quickly I would buy one!

I think maybe they will release this board on both LGA1155 and 1156. Possibility? That might be what "X" means. ASRock did release P67 on LGA1156.

I just read it will be 100% compatible with Ivy Bridge. Might be sb + ib socket?

1157? my lord! intel truly sux on compatibility.
(read this as: intel wants to ripoff people $ again. new cpu will force people to buy new mobo = extra $ from chipsets for intel)
