MSI Calls Bluff on Gigabyte's PCIe Gen 3 Ready Claim

Heh, marketing ... :-)

Check the full presentation in HWBOT forum!

In August, Gigabyte made a claim that baffled at least MSI, that scores of its motherboards are Ready for Native PCIe Gen. 3. Along with the likes of ASRock, MSI was one of the first with motherboards featuring PCI-Express 3.0 slots, the company took the pains to educate buyers what PCI-E 3.0 is, and how to spot a motherboard that features it. MSI thinks that Gigabyte made a factual blunder bordering misinformation by claiming that as many as 40 of its motherboards are "Ready for Native PCIe Gen. 3." MSI decided to put its engineering and PR team to build a technically-sound presentation rebutting Gigabyte's claims.

I can't remember when I got told this(around computex time)... never got time to verify... The 2412 is a PCI Gen2 chip that is a fact :D

Not trying to justify anything... in one hand there is 8x of true PCIe Gen3 on the board but that is misleading costumers to say the least that it's PCIe Gen3 board...

Gen3 ready ^^ remenber the HD ready screens ? ^^ 720P and not 1080P... same problem here IMHO (expect that if any of the line behind a switch are used that gonna be sucking in Gen2...)

Marketing fail....


datasheet for the 2412 : http://www.pericom.com/pdf/datasheets/PI3PCIE2415.pdf
says PCI-Express 2.0 chip nothing about Gen3 :D

Gen3 x8 is slower than Gen2 x16 ;)

Greece Stelaras says:

Let's wait for Gigabyte to release P67A-UD4-B3-G3 and everything will be allright . :D

Shrekogre: There's no mentiong of Gen3 on the product page.
There IS mention of Gen3 on the product page of the Sniper v2

If you have pictures of your board (non sniper v2) with Pericom Gen3 switches, I'd love to see them :)
