VR-Zone tested out the latest 7970 with ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, and Sandy Bridge-E CPU. The motherboard can toggle between various Gen slots to use. Results were quite surprising as there was no significant performance increase when used Gen 2 or Gen 3 slot.









Almost Zero performance boost. THAT'S AWESOME... :hehe:

i guess they didn't put up gen 1 comparison chart...but what would be use of pci-e 3.0 slots if the results are so insignificant???Sandy bridge-e unofficially supports gen 3 so incompatibility is out of question...

Rajan stick with1.1 as PCI-E 2.0 as almost minimum gains in single card setup.Most present generation are not able to take the best of the memory bandwith.The gains will be huge only be felt if you use a SLI or CF setup

true as vaibhav said unless u want to crossfire or sli, the only difference is that u are going to pay a premium for just 5 to 10 fps improvement to a max.

the gains will be non existent if the slots work at x16, each. Even at 8x, I do't think the differences would be noticeable.. there would be other bottlenecks which would play a bigger part IMO..
