2 questions for those who know these things ...
1) will the driver-fix affect the performance of the card, even slightly?
2) currently PCI-E 4.0 does not make much difference for this GFX card - will it in the future? Either to this GFX card, or future cards?
1) Inevitably yes. The clock reduction looks pretty small though (might want to wait and see what AIBs do regarding PCB and Bios revisions that may change it again).
2) Pci-e scaling numbers:
So no, pci-e 4 has no benefit beyond the margin of error for gaming with the 30x0 cards.
And by the time future cards really need it people will probably be asking if they should replace their Pci-e 6 mobo with a Pci-e 7 mobo.
1) depends on the card. Some have noticed higher boost clocks by 40mhz, some have noticed drops by the same.
