Question any noticable differences from PCI-E 1.1 to 2.0 yet?

the right mobos have come out already from Intel, AMD, n Nvidia that support 2.0. Now the question is, have any tests shown a noticeable difference from PCI-E 1.1 to 2.0 yet?

i mean we have the 8800 GT, GTS G92, n HD 3000 series out already, so is their any improvement from what u guys have seen? Idk, because ive never had a PCI-E 2.0 n a graphics card that supports it yet, n i just got the MSI K9A2 Platinum last week.

what r ur guys opinion on it?

Default Re: any noticable differences from PCI-E 1.1 to 2.0 yet?

I have a Foxconn C51XEM2AA right now, and I have a K9A2 Platinum coming my way
I also have an eVGA 8800 GT KO edition

After I install the K9A2 Platinum, I can run 3dmark06 at stock, and compare it to my 3dmark06 score with my C51XEM2AA (10,850)

Though I can't really be sure if any differences are because of PCI-E 2.0, or because of the chipset (Nforce 590 SLI vs AMD 790FX), or both.
