Graphics Card Issue

Jump to solution

I have an i7 3930k running on a DX79TO motherboard.

Does this chip enable PCIE 3.0 support on the DX79TO motheboard.

The motherboard needs a compatible processor with 3.0 functionality and that is not listed on the i7 3930k specs page.

My question is because I want to purchase a Radeon HD7870XT card that uses PCIE 3.0x16

Thanks

Hello Joe

The Intel® Core™ i7-3930K Processor uses a PCI Express Revision of 2.0 for data going to the processor. This feature increases performance as the data goes directly to the processor instead of through a chipset in the desktop board, but will do so at a PCI Express Revision 2.0 transfer speed.
