Panther Point Z77 chipset for Ivy Bridge is reported to feature PCIe 3.0
x16 slots on its mainboard.Questions
: Do you think Nvidia's upcoming Kepler
28mm GPUs (said to be 4 times as powerful per watt) will saturate the current PCIe 2 x16 slot's bandwidth, thus requiring PCIe 3 slots? Or perhaps we must wait till Nvidia Maxwell
is released before PCIe 2 bandwidth is exceeded?
Welcoming all speculations, thanks!
