    [SOLVED] If the 3950x supports PCIE 4.0, would it work with pcie 3.0 parts?

    I know the 3950x will most likely come out in September But if a processor supports a pcie that's above the GPU or m.2 would they work?

    Discussion HEDT future Intel vs AMD - Discussion

    The rumors abound that Intel may push the HEDT market to the ultra-high end price wise. Such as with the 3175 XEON. AMD has stated they will be producing a 3rd Generation Ryzen. The problem I find with mainstream CPUs is the draconian limit of 16 PCIe lanes from the CPU. I've never had a system...

    Question What's the fastest set up I can get on an ASUS Z170-E MoBo?

    My company is letting me get a new SSD, I only really need more space, but I think the MoBo would allow me some sort of PCIe SSD set up for a similar price. I'd like to make extra sure it will work before I get them to spend the money on it though. This is the mobo...

    Question m.2 to 4x PCIE 16x riser?

    Hi guys, The market is full with PCIE 1x slot to 4x PCIE 16x converters, for mining. For folding, the preferred minimum is a PCIE 3.0 1x slot per card. Using a PCIE 1x slot to 4x slots of PCIE 16x ,would slow down each card considerably, and is not recommended. My motherboard has 1x PCIE 16x...

    Question PCIe & laptop motherbaords?

    He guys, Can someone please clarify the following for me: 1. From my basic understanding, laptop motherboards do not use PCIe connectors, so the entire discussion about PCIe 4.0 & 5.0 is irrelevant for laptops. Is this correct? What confused me is what when I look at the tech specs of M.2 NVMe...
