    All a bit petty... Especially as Gigabyte and Asus have previews X79 boards with full PCIeG3 Support!

    Also, I understood that ASRock are a subsidiary of Asus so what's with the sibling rivalry?

    Re: News - ASRock adds to PCIe Gen3 debate

    X79 with gen3 support is a bit moot since SB-E won't support Gen3, according to the latest rumours - and I'd be interested in how many people would put money on socket 2011 lasting more than 1 generation of processors, given Intel's recent trend.

    Plus you can't *currently* buy a CPU, chipset or graphics card that officially support PCIe gen3, so this is all just a bit of e-peen waving: by the time there are any other components available that support them I'm pretty sure we'll see most mobo manufacturers providing "genuine" gen3 support.

    In fact, my biggest issue with this article is the title - I'm going to assume that the phrase "adds to" was being used sarcastically, since (as far as I can see) ASRock haven't added anything to any debate with this piece of propaganda...
