So what is it that makes the nVidia/Ivy Bridge-E this perfect storm of gaming? Well to start with, nVidia`s new GTX 7XX series is pumping out frame rates we have never seen before, and is doing it at higher resolutions and detail settings. Then there is the brute computational power of the Ivy Bridge-E which handles physics heavy games with greater ease and efficiency. But Ivy Bridge-E has also has architectural advantages for the GPU. To start, it ups PCIe lanes to 40 over the 16 seen in Haswell/Ivy Bridge/Sandy Bridge. With this advantage, SLI setups are not stepped down to 8x/8x and can operate at 16x/16x to reduce risk of bottlenecking./"
