Hello,

I recently purchased a Asrock Rack X470D4U for testing purpose. I'm using a 3700X with it.

The NVMe slots are PCIe Gen2 x4 & PCIe Gen3 x2. So, It was reaching 1GB/s-1.1GB/s.

So, I thought to use some NVMe adapters to gain better speed. There are 3 PCIe Gen3 Slots, one x16, another x4 & another x8.

In all the slots, the adapter gets 1.2GB/s (~ 9.6 Gbit/s) & not more than that. I'm using a Transcend 220s 512GB which should be able to reach 2.5GB/s.

I'm assuming a Link Speed Limitation. There is an option to switch the PCIe from chipset to CPU but after enabling it, the system doesn't start. I need to reset the BIOS to get it back. I'm using the Latest BIOS & BMC Version.

Can anyone find the issue here ??
