ok, i was reading from here
trying to see what the max was for the 2.0 slots to run @ in different modes (4x/8x/16x) in GB/s....didnt really get the answer i wanted.
so i guess my question is, what are the limits for bandwidth.
or if that is the incorrect question, what question should i be asking.
people say no current card would max out the pci-e 1.x or
pci-e 1.x is good enough to run any current card without crippling it.
is a pci-e 2.0 running @ 8x the same as a pci-e 1.x running @ 16x?
i want to make sure 2x 285's can run on my board without any loss performance from the pci-e 2.0 lanes running @ 8x speeds.
i have been trying to understand the numbers for these lanes for quite some time now, and i guess i need more help understanding them.
