That's PCI-E 3.0 though, isn't it? Even an 8x slot on PCI-E 3.0 is gonna have a throughput of a half-billion MB/s... or something like that, you know. :P

Anyway, are you really gonna use more than one GPU? Personally, I don't even consider these things anymore.


In all seriousness, though: PCI-E 3.0 delivers 1GB/s per lane. ;)

Do you think you're gonna have your new hardware in time for the competition (before Friday)?
