Hey guys new to the Forum ! My question would be about the "socket" where we put the card. I recently read in the news section that the new HD 7000 series GPU's will primarely be built to support and take advantage of PCI-E 3.0 but will still support the 2.0 umm "sockets" with little throttle when using the most High End ones . So... Intel's Z79 or something chipset will support 3.0 but cant find any evidence that AMDs brand new FX9xx/x9xx chipsets support 3.0 . I would like to know if this depends on the chipset or just the motherboard making company to implement it and wil there be an AMD motherboard supporting pci e 3.0 anytime soon ? Why is this so important to me ? I am planning after 4 years to buy a new computer and waiting for the AMD Zambezi Processors because i hope they will be cheaper then Intel . But would also like to buy a next gen videocard next year from Nvidia . The Kepler yes. It will most probably come with 3.0 support even though no one wrote about it.. because why not ?
