Anyone who with a good working knowledge about PC operation already knows that PCIe 3.0 is of zero performance value for any desktop PC - at the moment. Maybe in a few years there may be a need for it, but right now it's a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, though you can't convince the technically challenged because if a technology is advertised as better, then it must be better, even when it isn't - at the moment. The minor useable features of PCIe 3.0 right now, make no real difference in GPU performance as the x16 lanes are not saturated most of the time.
Asus is guilty of bogus promotion of PCIe 3.0 as a performance enhancement and that is why they developed this hack-patch of questionable merit. Asus knows there are a lot of technically challenged consumers who will buy Asus mobos because they falsely believe that PCIe 3.0 will magically provide a performance advantage, which it doesn't at the moment or probably in the next few years even. This is just another disingenuous marketing ploy IMO, until proven to actually deliver improved system performance in real applications, not synthetic benches. I can't wait to see the reviews with real apps not synthetic benches...
