    Default PCI Express 3.0 Details Emerge

    Phoronix: PCI Express 3.0 Details Emerge

    While running through the information we recorded from the Intel Developer Forum this past week in San Francisco, we didn't comment really on PCI Express 3.0 but wanted to share some additional details from IDF. While native PCI Express 2.0 graphics cards aren't even available yet, PCI Express 3.0 will over twice the bandwidth of PCI Express 1.0, which makes PCI-E 3.0 four times the bandwidth of PCI-E 1.0.

    Funny...but again it all comes back to driver issue. Why even care about 2.0 and 3.0 when I cannot even get a good HDTV card (AVerMedia M780) to even be recognized (much less supported) in Linux?
