    Cool Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 Motherboard w/ Two PCI Express 3.0 x16 Slots!

    From Legitreviews.com -


    If you've been waiting for an enthusiast motherboard that supports the PCI Express 3.0 specification then your wait is over! This morning ASRock announced the Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 motherboard and the company says it is the world's first motherboard that supports PCIe 3.0 and is available today. The board uses the Intel Z68 chipset paired with two PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots and one PCI Express 2.0 slot for those that want to run multi-GPU setups from NVIDIA and AMD. We don't know of any graphics cards on the market that actually use PCI Express 3.0 technology, but we do know they are coming in the months ahead. PCIe 3.0 will really be exciting for PCIe SSDs as faster configurations will be supported!




    Supporting the next-gen of PCIe 3.0 configuration, the Fatal1ty Z68 Professional Gen3 comes with 2 PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots and 1 PCI Express 2.0 slot which are capable of NVIDA Quad SLI and AMD 3-Way CrossFireX. Compared to PCIe 2.0, PCIe 3.0 could double the bandwidth of PCI Express and boost data transfers in systems. Coupled with the upcoming Intel Ivy Bridge processors with PCIe 3.0 support and next-gen PCIe 3.0 VGA graphics cards, users are assured to enjoy the full power of PCIe Gen3 standard. This is a premium motherboard coming with the top-end specifications. The integrated PLX PEX8608 chip allows all PCIe devices to work at the proper speed simultaneously.

    Well well well seems like ASRock beat the big fishes to it probably the next generation of nVIDIA and AMD graphics cards will feature PCI E 3.0 specs, but I will not suggest anyone to upgrade their current rigs that features PCI E 2.0 to 3.0, better to wait for the next generation of consoles to hit the market as the consoles sort of draws the line for gaming graphics.

    PCIe 4.0 is in work, coming in a few months... though PCIe 2.0 is enough to handle the highest bandwidth today's GPUs support...
