Example regarding PCI Express 3.0
According to Wikipedia, you need a 32 lane PCI Express connector to reach 16GB/s on PCI Express 2.0 .. right, okay...
While PCI-SIG is clearly stating that they can do nearly 32GB/s with PCI Express Gen3 x16
So. Gen3 suddenly QUADRUPLED
bandwidth? No, it's an end-user interpretation of bandwidth and not what is being "marketed" by PCI-SIG for instance.
Then Gigabyte tried to use Wiki ahem "facts" on our FB page

it is possible for products designed to the PCIe 3.0 architecture to achieve bandwidth near 1 gigabyte per second (GB/s) in one direction on a single-lane (x1) configuration and scale to an aggregate approaching 32 GB/s on a sixteen-lane (x16) configuration.
And since every tech site out there has it right (Really nice article from Anandtech)
why doesn't Wikipedia?
Unless everyone wants all their PCI express cards running Simplex, I'm all for following PCI-SIG and ignoring Wikipedia.
