Gigabyte denies MSI allegations

Mainboard 578 Published by

Earlier this month MSI's marketing department send out evidence that Gigabyte's motherboards don't truly support PCI Express 3.0(check here), but now Gigabyte defends itself with a presentation of its own.

In its short presentation with no more than 5 slides, Gigabyte tried to provide an explanation to its claim that most of its new motherboards are Gen 3-ready. The presentation begins with a diplomatic-sounding message on what is the agenda of the presentation, followed by a disclaimer that three of its recently-launched boards, Z68X-UD7-B3 & P67A-UD7/P67A-UD7-B3, lack Gen 3 readiness. This could be because those boards make use of a Gen 2 NVIDIA nForce 200 bridge chip, even the first PCI-E x16 slot is wired to that chip.
