AMD graphic cards with support for PCI Express 3.0 appeared on the market for quite some time, yet there is no AMD chipset supporting PCI Express 3.0 for AM3+. As I cannot find any information on the subject, I am wondering if anyone knows if:
1. There is any new chipset on the horizon for AM3+ with support for PCI Express 3.0.
2. If there is any performance penalty for a card like say Radeon 7850 on a PCI Express 2.0 slot regarding graphics and also computational instructions (OpenCL). What about a CrossfireX configuration with 2 cards on PCI Express 2.0?
These questions come related to the newly released AMD FX 8350 processor and Windows 8 OS, so I know it might take a while until community and proper reviews might give a conclusive point of view.
