Whit next UEFI BIOS for any board,no problem to flash with Q-Flash or @BIOS as for X79 and Z77 series boards,also with ALT+F10 to flash Backup BIOS.

Hi, will the Z68AP-D3 Rev 1.0 get UEFI bios in the future? I saw the Rev 2.0 has UEFI on the gigabyte support d/l.

The only difference is Rev 2 has PCIe 3.0 while Rev 1 has PCIe 2.0.

Using Ivy bridge with my gtx 580 and z68 rev.1 mobo my pcie1 lane is borked to x8 speed.
what am i to do buy another board so i can get my x16 speed back? or buy a gen3 GPU and get my x16 speed back?
The sweeter option is the GPU and the 7970 lightning has dropped £100 the last while ...
option 1
gtx 580 + g1 sniper3 /UP5 TH

option 2
7970 lightning + z78xp ud3p

option 2 is best right?, 1.5gb of VRAM is low these days, i don't want to be forced into buying mobo to get x16 speed back, i'll just go for gen3 gpu and hope i get gen3(the option in bios is there) x16 but will be happy for now with gen2 x16.
 
anyways you think i could get gen3 x16 GPU speeds with this mobo i have if i had gen3 gpu?
I'll get mobo sooner than later if i can't get gen3 on the z68xp ud3p rev.1

Sorry for waiting, here is Palit GTS450 on my mbo and no problem with PCI Express x16. I'll still try for a day or two the same thing with GTX560.




Please find some picture of your GTX580 on internet, I just want to see it, maybe it has strange PCIe line like thic card:

Hi

I am not sure whether iot is relevant to you but check this out.

When SATA3 / USB 3.0 (Marvell 9128 /NEC USB 3.0 Controllers) work at turbo mode, 1st PCIE x16 will work at x8 speed.

Hi i use one sata3 ssd and one sata2 ssd, and i have a usb3 external drive that's sometimes plugged in.
But what is this turbo mode? i don't use the marvell port on my mobo.
Many thanks.

Edit: i have no option in bios to disable the sata3 usb3 turbo feature.

Broadwell thanks for your help, my friend.

Gigabyte i've been reading up about the sata3 /usb - pcie x8 nerf, what happens if i throw a gen3 card into this board, still gen2 x8 speeds?
On the mobo's info page it says it supports gen3 cpu and gpu.


'Designed for PCI Express Gen.3 Support'
http://uk.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3912#ov

I hope the g1 sniper3 doesn't have this crappy 'feature', use sata3 and your pcie speeds get nerfed to x8, what?

uPDATE:
After having re-flashed then familiarized myself more with th bios i've managed to optimize it nice like it was before.
After installing my sata3 drive a few weeks ago my gaming performance dropped and boot up times got horribly slow, however that's now been fixed by adjusting some bios settings, so some things must have been set wrong or enabled when they shouldn't have been.
Still on x8 speed but i have my games running nice and snappy again.
(i disabled the marvell controller and things like that).

but still, can this board run a gen3 gpu @ gen3 pcie speed?

Does the Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB really have that much less power loss to run 0.3v lower than the Asrock and Intel? if so this will be great for Ivy Bridge as they will run hotter then the Sandy Bridges do

Look at this:

Ignore PCI-E 1.1 on GTS 450, it's power saving feature, when you run some 3D application it jumps to 2.0.
Please  try this - download newest intel chipset driver and install it. Tell us the results when you do it.  ;)
