My System Specs


Thanks for the hands on testimony.

Head to head comparisons are obviously going to be impossible as the chipset performance will vary (unless there's a board out there with a bios setting to revert to PCIe 1.0a for compatibility) but it's good to see at least an attempt to demonstrate the differences.

IMO, considering the differences between chipset performance, I wouldn't consider anything less than 10 - 15% improvements to be statistically significant.

The only place I'm thinking PCIe 2.0 might provide an improvement with current tech would be pumping HDMI out to a TV. I'd think that the extra bandwith might show a performance boost although I'm not even convinced on that.
