what?
i said z68 to z78, the z78 is the 1155ivy platform,
remeber ivy is still 1155 just a die shrink with some extras...

You mean x79?

Although, Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge-E is confusing. I though it would have made more sense for SB-E to be 1155 and Ivy Bridge to be 2011.

This is awesome for anyone who owns a Gigabyte motherboard. A chart with the supported boards is in the link

I don't have time to read the entire thread so I'll just sum it up in one single post:

YOU NEED PHYSICAL PCI-E 3.0 SWITCHES TO USE 3.0. PERIOD. (along with an Ivy Bridge processor)

This press release is misleading. Technically *all* LGA1155 boards can be "PCI-E 3.0 ready", according to what Gigabyte is saying. But that is NOT the case.


So... to summarize.

PCI-e 3.0 requires following:
  1. Ivy Bridge processor (assuming it has 3.0 functionality... don't forget Intel's teething problems when 2.0 was introduced)
  2. Proper motherboard with IC switch that is 3.0 compliant
  3. Proper PCI-e 3.0 device (GPU, etc)
  4. Proper BIOS on MB to support IC switch

Maybe Gigabyte added physical PCI-E switches in the B3 models?

Gigabyte uses Pericom. If someone can verify, they use Pericom PI3PCIE2415, which is PCI-e 2.0 spec.

Again, you NEED a PCI-e 3.0 quick switch for this to work, something like this:
http://www.pericom.com/products/swit...p/PI3PCIE3412/

Any board using a PCI-e 2.0 quick switch or even NF200 will NOT have 3.0 connectivity with Ivy Bridge, even with BIOS update.

If you can read Chinese I suggest you read this:

So, according to this, my board already supports pci-e 3. Everybody likes free stuff!

Thanks MSIalex. It's sad that nobody questioned this. Gigabyte trying to pull a dirty trick to get its customers back.

Here's the translated page for those (like me) that can't read Chinese (it's sufficiently clear): http://translate.google.com/translat...see%3Fpage%3D1
