Rumor: AMD PCIe 3.0 chipsets will not be until 2013

Rumor: AMD PCIe 3.0 chipsets will not be until 2013

Since November last year that rumors suggest that is developing new microprocessor AMD FX-Series of first and second generation for socket AM3 + code known by name AMD 1090FX and 1070 .

According to SemiAccurate, these new chipsets from AMD, as well as current chipsets for Llano (A55 and A75) and Trinity (A55, A75 and A85X) will not support the PCI Express (PCIe) 3.0, so keep support the PCI Express 2.0.

Although on a practical level the lack of support bus is no problem, since in many tests the differences between the performance of PCIe 3.0 to PCIe 2.0/2.1 front are virtually nonexistent. But while the lack of PCIe 3.0 support does not affect performance, if it could affect negatively in terms of marketing at AMD platforms.

AMD has not revealed any of any APU roadmap, or chipset with PCIe 3.0 support for this year, so it is presumed that probably future AMD chipsets (successors of the current AMD A85X) for APU Kaveri are the first chipsets AMD PCIe 3.0 support, but come next year.
