Solved MSI R7970 from Tigerdirect... Wrong info? Tags: Graphics Cards MSI Compatibility HD Radeon Graphics Last response: February 16, 2012 10:56 PM in Graphics & Displays Share kairotic February 6, 2012 1:56:05 PM This is the quote for the MSI R7970-2PMD3GD5 Radeon HD 7970: "The MSI R7970-2PMD3GD5 Radeon HD 7970 Video Card has a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 interface, compatible only with motherboards bearing the same interface." The entire sentence seems wrong to me. Aren't all 7970s PCIe 3.0... and isn't PCIe backwards compatible? Link: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...
