According to what gigabyte have said, so it would seem.

I'm thinking this means that they'll come out with new board revisions, like they did with their AM3 boards to give them AM3+ sockets.

Could it be possible that they simply overclocked the PCI-E 2.0 slots to be able to support the bandwidth of PCI-E 3.0? In the end you are simply looking for bandwidth, having a better pci-e bus speed might be able to accomplish such.

Hopefully other companies do this. I don't know why Gigabyte would bother, wouldn't it make more sense as a company to make more profits? I mean, when PCI-E 3.0 Video cards start popping up on the market, shouldn't the company not even bother with those BIOS updates and just make new boards that support PCI-E 3.0?

From the looks of it, native PCIe 3.0 is completely CPU based, therefore in a business sense, saying to buy a 2500k and a gigabyte p67/z68 board now, you have the "guaranteed" option of upgrading to IB/PCIe 3.0, therefore pushing sales.
No doubt there will be better/more features on the p77/z78 boards when they are released around the launch of IB though.

Gigabyte still FAILS. No Virtu dMode at all. Every Z68 board you MUST use the display output from the monitor and run it in iMode which kills gaming performance. And the Gigabyte boards that just plain don't have any onboard video out don't get Virtu at all.

This pretty much makes Gigabytes entire Z68 line moot and pointless unless you want the SSD caching and no QuickSync. No clue what Gigabyte is thinking.
