The long-awaited debut of PCI Express 3.0 is finally here, and it’s come aboard MSI’s Z68A-GD80 (G3) motherboard. Rocking Intel’s latest design standard, this board’s packing two PCIe 3.0 — one x16 and one x8 — and three PCIe 2.0 slots, two USB 3.0 ports, and four DIMM slots. What’s more, the board offers Click BIOS II, for a consistent interface whether you’re tweaking at boot time or boosting clock speeds in Windows, and Virtu’s switchable graphics. Unfortunately, for you mother lovers, there’s still no word on pricing or availability for the Z68A-GD80 (G3). Full PR after the break.
