What affect would not having PCIe 3 have on GTX Titan performance?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting that sinking feeling that Haswell DT will ultimately be less inspiring than i7-3930K or 3970X.  I'm still interested in in a 6-core processor and am thinking I IB-E sounds like an overclocking nightmare, which means if Haswell turns out to perform well for overclock then it's a year and a half before we will see Haswell E and that's more than I want to wait.  One thing that has me wondering is how not having PCIe 3 will affect the top end nVidia video cards.  If it was <10% impact I'd feel pretty good about SB-E and a top end nV card.  If PCIe 2.x would constrain something like Titan I'd have to go for a PCIe 3 compatible processor.

 

Anyone have anything firm on this question?

 

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for that.  Does the X79 board accommodate i7-3930 or -3970?  I'm going to wait for a few weeks into Haswell and some reports and if I have any doubts I'm going w/ one of these 6 core CPUs.

Yes, both. As well as the 3960X and 3820. The 3820 is however a four core CPU.
