My System Specs

Default

I thought these boards would have more then 16 lanes meaning if you have a motherboard with TRI-SLI it would be running at 8x and 4x and 4x ,I know this would be equal to a PCIe2.0 board running at 8x and 8x instead of 4x ,I know the higher end boards will have more lanes due to a chip being added.But I was hopeing the CPU would be capable of more lanes.I know it has'nt came out yet but looking at the motherboards these chips are going to be about the same as a SAndy bridge,except it will be PCIe3.0 complainat and use a little less power.I think I will wait for thr next genaration of chips since I have went with a X79 and a 3820 chip.Even there cheapest boards comes with 40 lanes.But you can't but a $100 X79 like you can with a 1155 chipset.

Same as almost every other socket's boards(excluding X58) you need the chip to get over X16/X16 or X8X8X8X8, I know my mobo does X16/X16, and X8X8X8, but almost every newer board only has 16 lanes, unless you buy some $300 board with that NF200 chip in it.
