    VR-Zone has learned that the G98 is planned to replace the G86 (8400 GS) as a low-end GPU. The G98 supports PCIe 2.0 and will have 256MB of 2.5ns GDDR2 memory clocked at 800MHz on a 64-bit memory bus. Its performance is expected to be between the G84 and G86 and will compete against the ATI RV620.

    It's got to be that way.
    If technology wasn't confusing, no one would need us to work on their stuff.

    Yes the new p35 and up chipsets I believe all will work with PCIE and PCIE2 boards, all they need is a bios update when the boards become available.:toast:

    PCI-E 1.0 cards will work on a PCI-E 2.0 slot but the p35 boards are only PCI-E 1.0 so dont think putting a PCI-E 2.0 card in it will work, PCI-E 2.0 are only one intels X chipsets and a bios update cant chang the speed of the slots
