According to this .....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI-E  (Half way down the page).
In August 2007, PCI-SIG announced that PCI Express 3.0 would carry a bit rate of 8 gigatransfers per second (GT/s), and that it would be backward compatible with existing PCIe implementations.

I haven't found anything on r7 yet.
Is your board listed here...
