Hello!
So i looked up GPU-Z today and i noticed that my graphics card is curretly running on PCI-E 8x 2.0 instead of PCI-E 16x 2.0, GPU-Z also says that my graphics card supports 16x 2.0.
My GPU is in the first slot, runned Render test and it changed from PCI-E 8x 1.1 to 2.0.
I dont know if theres big difference between 16x and 8x, but it would be nice to fix this "problem" and get this to 16x 2.0.
My PC specs:
Intel Xeon X5650
Intel X58 MOBO
8GB ECC/REG DDR3
Palit GTX 680 Jetstream 2gb
500w PSU
500GB HDD
Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
And what do you guys think? Is there big diffrence between those two?
If you need more information about this, just ask!
Thank you in advance! :)
