ASUS is known for their motherboards. Let’s face it, it sometimes feels like everyone has an ASUS motherboard, or is about to get one. This is one company that seems to have its hand on the heart (sorry) of the PC. They have just announced that they are going to be releasing the first AMD AM3+ motherboard with PCI Express 3 support.

The Sabertooth 990FX/Gen3 R2.0

So, for those of you who think that the word “PCI” is being used as an acronym by far too many industries (yes, it is also a part of the payment card industry and is used in medicine) may not know why PCI Express 3 is so exciting. Well, it’s kind of awesome because it means that your machine can handle graphics cards with extreme demands and you can read a really excellent explanation on here. I have to admit, I can’t believe that it’s been six years since PCI Express first appeared. Time has flown.

Anyway, this lovely motherboard from ASUS is going to be the first to deliver an AMD-based chap with PCI Express 3. Ever. That’s pretty cool. The Sabertooth 990FX/Gen3 R2.0 also has plenty of other features to make it a worthy addition to the home gaming machine. It’s certainly worth looking into if you are considering an upgrade anyway, this will set you straight on the path of being game ready for a long time to come.

The motherboard superior heat management features that include the way it has been designed as well as the TUF CeraMIX Heatsink coting tech, TUF Thermal Radar, and TUF components that can handle extreme conditions. I love a motherboard that could take on an army while simultaneously handling everything your PC can throw at it, don’t you?

So what do you think? Are you going to investigate the first ever AMD ready motherboard with PCI Express 3 support? Tell me here…
