    I'm after this mobo.

    http://www.asrock.com/MB/overview.asp?Model=P67 Extreme6

    Can someone please tell me if this mobo supports 2 GPU's @ 16 x speed or is it 2 GPU's @ 8 x speed?

    Would I notice any difference speed wise from 16x16 and 8x8 as I have been informed that if it is 8x8 then I will not loose much speed (with a i5 Sandybridge)

    Thanks all,


    Sy.

    P67 does not do x16/x16 afaik. x16/x16 to x8/x8 should see around 5% drop or a few FPS only.

    I was reading an article in MaximumPC magazine today about it, perhaps I got the wrong end of the stick!
