Guidelines and usage says basic logo is acceptable for compliance with 1.0 spec and higher. So according to them thats there only PCI Express logo.
PCISIG Log and Guildelines
If a company chooses to add a number seperate from the logo thats just not part of the certification.
The consumer would have to look them up on the list for 3.0 certification not look for a logo on the box.
The part I'm talking about is covered on page 6 of their Guidelines, that states a product can't claim it is compliant with PCISIG standards unless the product in question has passed all compliance testing related to the specification. So, while there isn't a specific 3.0 logo, the product can't use the term PCI-E 3.0 anywhere, even in the documentation, unless it has passed PCISIG compliance testing. NVidia cards use PCI-E 3.0 in their packaging and documentation, which means they passed the compliance tests, and again I'm pretty sure AMD cards are the same. Intel's platform has not and hence you won't see PCI-E 3.0 anywhere in Intel's documentation or packaging. Basically the words "PCI-E 3.0" becomes the logo I was talking about.
