    Could you link that source please. I couldn't find it on the Nvidia driver page.

    Whoever started this rumor is retarded. The 79X chipset has NOTHING to do with the 3.0 video buss that is CONTROLLED by the 2011 CPU!
    See here:
    http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/...s-chipset.html

    The 79x ONLY controls up to 8 PCI Express 2.0 x1 ports

    Nvidia has updated there driver info with this so the X79 chipset is only PCI-E 2.0 but can run at higher PCI-E 3.0 speeds.
    All what Nvidia is doing is following Intel BullshXit antics in order to justify the astronomical pricing structuring. As for what Intel is has been doing for Xeons, As for what Nividia has been doing for Quadros brandings.

    Honestly, do you think Intel and Nvidia can pull this BullshXit with thier enterprise customers and get away with it??

    What Intel and Nvidia really needs is to get *****XSlapped with multiple Fruad, Anti-Trust and Rico lawsuits.

    Actually PCIe 3.0 compliance requires both CPU and motherboard compliant specifications. Although X79 is not "officially" PCIe 3.0 compliant, it has full capability to be so. Accordingly the mobo makers developed their boards to also accomodate the new 3.0 spec. Although neither X79 nor SB-E is PCIe 3.0 complaint officially, the platform can and does operate at PCIe 3.0 specs. The AMD 7900 series cards run fine on X79/SB-E at PCIe 3.0. Nividia just needs to work it out.

    I'm not completely surprised that X79 sits in this limbo position. The platform launched before any actual PCIe complaint cards existed. Such as it may be with early adpotion.

    Is this disease rapidly spreading?

    I will repeat this again with some additional clarification.. THE x79 HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE 40 GRAPHICAL LANES OF PCI-e THAT IS DIRECTLY PIPELINED TO THE 2011 PROCESSOR!

    Do you know what you are talking about? The SB-E is MOST certainly OFFICIALY PCIe 3.0 complaint. http://www.intel.com/content/dam/doc...heet-vol-1.pdf READ 1.2.2

    Oh Really? The 3.0 specification was improvised and developed in tandem.

    LOL....are you referring to 8.0 GT/s spec? If so, that's true. That's why I said it "operates at PCIe 3.0 specs."

    But, officially speaking, X79/SB-E is only PCI 2.0 Sorry.
    This is the very latest X79/SB-E diagram. It's pretty clear.

    Sorry. Please check your facts again. Intel began spinning 8.0 GT/s capable test silicon before PCI-SIG even concluded on the PCIe 3.0 specs. The card manufacturers were way behind the curve. Furthermore without any PCIe 3.0 hardware in existence well in advance of launch, X79/SB-E could not validated officially at PCIe 3.0.

    Rumor has it that X79 "might" be officially validated at PCIe3.0 some time this year. Until then, it is PCIe 2.0 that runs at 8.0 GT/s.

    If you can find any official Intel Whitepapers that claim X79 or SB-E to be Officially PCIe 3.0 validated, please do share it.

    If you happened to order an EVGA GTX 680... Use the driver that came on the CD... Using that driver will show PCIE 3.0 instead of 2.0 ... The problem is with the Latest WHQL Driver for the GTX 680
