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?

Yep, that is wrong info. It IS PCI 3, and is compatible with PCI 2.

Thanks for bringing this up.

I will have our PM give a look to Item: M452-7970 and correct.
