[KitGuru] MSI launches world’s first PCI-Express 3 mainboard

While the race to release the world’s first PCI-Express 3 graphic card is underway in the background, MSI has beaten its rivals to the punch with the world’s first mainboard to support Intel’s new industry standard. It is called the Z68A-GD80 (G3) and KitGuru got happy with the snappy.

It always strikes us an unusual when companies build huge stands, but have ‘world record holders’ tucked away around the back.

This was the case with MSI’s stand at Computex 2011.

While the main display did hold the new X79 and 990FX chipset designs (and very nice they look as well – more on those late), there was a humbling first hiding around the back.

Pretty awesome stuff if you ask me.

What do you guys think, more fps in games?
