Gigabyte give Ivy Bridge and PCI-Express 3.0 support to all 6 series motherboards

/ 7 years ago

Today Gigabyte have come out with a bang listing two new fantastic features that have been implemented into their entire 6 series range of motherboards. This will all be included via a very simple BIOS update and will include full support for next generation Intel 22nm Ivy Bridge CPUs as well as offering native support for PCI-Express 3.0 technology to give the best possible bandwidth for future graphics cards using the technology.

All 6 series boards including the recently announced G1 Sniper 2 will include support for these two new features and only requires a small, simple BIOS update.

For those who aren’t aware, Gigabyte has one of the easiest BIOS update methods around and shouldn’t be feared if wanting this new technology.
