For those who have a recent Gigabyte mother board, this really is a great novelty. Is that from now on, no matter if the plate is high-end, medium or low, you prepare to work with Ivy Bridge and PCIe 3.0.
But this update is only compatible for any Gigabyte containing a chipset Intel H61, H67, P67 and Z67.
And the good news does not end there: for the “modernization” of the plates can be made completely free of charge. It only requires that you install a software as part of the hardware already implemented.
In addition, Ivy Bridge will soon have an improvement in terms of energy efficiency and performance, both for the implementation of 22 nanometer and a tri – Gate.
Moreover, in the coming months it is expected to be available some graphics cards with PCIe 3.0.
