Default Re: Do Sandy Bridge-E CPUs support PCIe 3.0?

There are facts.
like I said, that's chipset support. Read any review, the cpu's don't support it yet. It's the same situation as later sandy bridge mb's. mb support, no cpu support yet. The pci-e 3.0 support comes in future snb-e cpu's due out next year in 8 core form. Even the mb manufactuer's are stating it in their specs.
