I'm not real sure how many cards are fast enough to break the PCIe 2.0 'speed limit'. But, supposedly it will give a small increase in speed with PCIe 3.0. How, I have no idea.

Here you go,

But the spacing kills what the board can do. My card takes up 2 slots. So, realistically it could only do X16, X16, X8 most likely.

That`s what I already posted.

1 slot taken x16 speed
2 slots taken x16 and x16 speed
3 slots taken then you get the x16 x16 x8 speeds.

according to the chart.

2 980 Classifieds or 2 Titan X SCd in that thing would be killer

It probably would. But I don't want to pay another $700 to find out.

No need, your card is killer, I guess only the Kingpin might be a bit better.

Reason why One GPU is at 100% and the second can go from 25% to 50% use at best that is why it is a waste of money these days for Sli or Xfire unless you are running 3 monitors but again DSR is making it possible to play games in 2k with one card and optimized so ........ Honestly one GPU is the standard unless your going for bragging rights
That's good to know. I was under the impression that 2x16 was possible. I won't bother trying to Crossfire then. I'll just stick with the one card, which I'm perfectly happy with.

Do you think I'll get any boost in frame rates going from PCIe 2.0 to 3.0, using the Intel build?
You will see at least 25% gains in ever game
