ASROCK extreme 7 and fatality pci-e 3

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok so the asrock extreme 7 gen3 has 1x pci-e gen3 slot
... while the fatal1ty proffessional gen 3 has 2x pci-e gen3 slots.

This confuses me cause the extreme 7 is supposed to be the flagship board
that is newer and worth more.

Can anyone shed some light on if you would need 2x the pci-3 gen 3 slots?


in future that is.... i know pci-e 3 isnt actually available till ivy bridge and gen3 graphics cards.

There really is no need to worry about the pci-e 3 boards for a while. Graphics card's don't even saturate the current pci express 2 lanes yet.
