    Windows 8 and PCIe 3.0?

    Do you think that Windows 8 will be the first OS to support the new PCIe 3.0 standard or will microsoft add support for windows 7.

    Also will PCIe 3.0 GPU only be Directx 12 cards as in to get the full speed out of the card you must be using Directx 12 in a game or application?
