PCI Express 3.0 to go final in November

Quote:
PCIe 3.0 has numerous advantages over existing bus specifications: it will operate at an 8GT/s bit rate (effectively double PCIe 2.0's bandwidth), will have different electrical models, and will move to 128-bit and 130-bit encoding schemes (the 8-bit and 10-bit scheme is no longer required). Most importantly, it will be compatible with version 2.0.

  1. Thanks saint19. I will watch this space for more news before I replace my X48 crossfire rig.
  2. Yeah, take a look of this http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/phenom-ii-x6-1075t-phenom-ii-x4-970-phenom-ii-x2-560,2749-3.html before u take a upgrade choice remember that Sandy and Bulldozer are near to comes out.
  3. Thanks for the link German,looks promising.
    However is it backward compatible with PCI-E 2.0/1.1 ?
  4. Yeah it's compatible with PCI-E 2.0 but i'm not sure about 1.1.
  5. I never put two and two together until Maziar's post and why Saint19 is a mod... His name alone scared the French, which surrendered to him. At this point, he appointed himself a Moderator... [:mousemonkey:5] :lol:

    Okay... all joking aside... Thanks for the information on PCI 3.0. I think I'll wait for it to be more standard before I make my jump to PCI 3.0, with USB 3.0 and SATA 6.0 Gb/s. By that time, I'll be on the X78 chipset from Intel :) (yeah, I bi-passed the X68, since I'm sure in 2012, the X78 will be released :D )
  6. tecmo34 u will be banned :lol: :lol: :lol:

  7. Please don't ban me... I'm over halfway to Gold in this section... :lol: :lol: :lol:

  8. Gold? Nice...i'm over the 2nd Silver :lol:

    @Maziar... Your posts look fine and actually you'll find more grammar errors in my posts than you will in yours and I've been speaking it since birth! :lol:
