Originating from its own media database to confirm the source, MSI is taking a pretty vicious swipe at GIGABYTE for apparently giving somewhat misleading information to its buyers in the way of native PCI-E Gen 3 support on its motherboards.

Using a batch of freshly produced, detailed slides that are now being distributed about the web, MSI makes an effort to educate people on what a true PCI-E 3.0 board is all about and how to tell if a motherboard carries proper PCI-E 3.0, with its primary intent at this stage of the game to point out that GIGABYTE's boards are lacking in this respect and will not deliver quality PCI-E 3.0 connectivty.

MSI goes on to say in its slides that apart from GIGABYTE's G1.Sniper2, GIGABYTE's 40 odd motherboards with "Ready for Native PCIe Gen. 3" association are anything but and that GB is misleading its buyers to think otherwise.
