PCI-SIG Releases the PCIe 2.0 Specifications
Posted 16 Jan 2007 - 08:04
The new spec also supports a number of features at the protocol level. For instance, the new spec gives the OS the ability to dynamically adjust the speed of a link, and to receive notifications when the link speed and width change. Devices based on the PCIe 2.0 spec are backwards compatible with devices based on the 1.0 and 1.1 specifications. Now that the spec is finalized, expect products that support it to start appearing in later 2007. Graphics cards will be the first products to make use of PCIe 2.0 and along with DirectX 10, expect this year to have a Crysis 2-similar release.

*sigh* yet another upgrade, yet another $500 to be spent. I hate technology as of late.
No worry... at least until the next bus. PCI-E is fully backwards compatible... You're current graphics card will work when PCI-E 2.0 motherboards are released. (but not that onboard crap, Sasa )

Just wondering if there is a difference in the slot types or graphics card connections.
I appreciate any advice.
Many thanks - Barrel
