Two cards even, however on Z68 no, because of the delay caused by NF200 so far there has been no benefit to using 16x/16x on it, however on X79 that isn't an issue the extra few(0.1%) FPS help in benching. We shall see with Z77 how it is with this new chip, I have yet to test it, but I have the ability to do so now.

Confirmed G1Sniper3 will run 16x/16x for any two cards no matter of PCI-E generation, so 3.0 yes, 2.0 yes, 2.1 yes, 1.0 sure.

Now leave Sin alone so we can get a solid perspective on the new chipset! wheee.gif

Lol, damn.. I was pretty much in your spot few days ago! And I decided to sell my sandy bridge i7 setup and buy X79 instead of waiting for Ivy.

X79 is supported for Ivy Bridge-E too..


And I have a MSI 580 lightning too biggrin.gif

this is like the only one comparison i can find PCI-E 3.0 @8x and x16 (this is based on single card/monitor but if you running three monitors/4 way SLI the..yeah the numbers would be a bit different )

For any given game the amount of data sent per frame is largely constant regardless of resolution, so we’ve opted to test everything at 1680x1050. At the higher framerates this resolution offers on our 7970, this should generate more PCie traffic than higher, more GPU limited resolutions, and make the impact of different amounts of PCIe bandwidth more obvious.
