    I was under the impression that the 4 lanes dedicated to CPU-to-PCH were taken from those 40 lanes. Which makes sense since the most you ever see on other boards after the two x16 connections is a x4 slot (from the CPU). Though looking at the back of the board shot, I don't see where they would fit a switch under that sink.

    Edit: Actually, looking back at the recently released photos of X79 boards, a few of them do have an extra x8 slot coming from the CPU. The ones in the beginning I believe did not.

    There's just more VRM under that.

    Slim.

    No Ivy Bridge LGA1155 processor will ever be faster than any Sandy Bridge-E.

    32 lanes to PEG slots (as four x8 links), x4 as DMI (its own encoding), x4 as DMI-assist, which is rudimentary on all Patsburg variants except Patsburg-D and Patsburg-T. This board uses neither.

    Quoting you on that. :)

    Its not true. Intel does it ALL the time to their buyers. Introduce a mega costly kick ass system and come within 95% on a stock budget system 3 months later.

    Ivy bridge WILL kick 2011's ass in all thing s not capable of handling a $1000-1500 8 core -16 threaded beast.

    IE most applications.

    Hell even handbrake maxes at 8 threads. disable HTT on 2011 and YES it will beat a sandy B i7.

    Only cuz its 8 real cores. But at 3 times the cost it will not have 3 times the performance only the same perf clock for clock core for core.

    2011 quads, will be in the 250-400 range I bet and be no differnet than 1155 i7s

    How many lanes does X79 PCH give out? Cause if SB-E only gives out 32 then X79 has to give out more than 8. All I have heard is that X79 provides 8 lanes. It would have to give out 16 for this board as that black x16 slot is x8. http://screencast.com/t/dRQmNZNFM

    Just to clarify, I noticed the quote, you said "ever be" faster.. you meant never be right?

    40x + 8x to PCH

    And if future revisions are indeed pcie 3.0, than 80% less latency as well. 2b encoding on PCIE 3.0. w00t!

    [12 * x1] or [(2 * x4) + 4 * x1] or [(1 * x4) + 8 * x1]. All are Gen 2.0.

    The GbE controller in this board is Intel-made, and uses the chipset's GbE lane. Intel chipset GbE lane is a specialised PCI-E 1.1 x1 link which is clocked at 50 MHz. Intel High Definition Audio bus is physically a PCI-Express 1.0 x1 link. Both GbE and HDA don't eat into the 12 lanes.

    Still even without the GbE using a lane (I didn't mark the HDA), that black slot is undoubtedly x8. It has all the necessary caps and traces and is even labeled as x8. So X79 would still need to provide 15 lanes for this setup if SB-E only provides 32.

    Not trying to be a pain in the ass, just want to know how you're getting your info.
