Question Graphic Interface width/max supported x8

Hi,

I was wondering if the link width and max supported limited at x8 are because of my M.2 drive?

My box: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/nzvVvW

I don't really care because this is a workstation and not a gaming box, but if I could get it to x16 that would be great.

Thank you!

No. Your M.2 does not take lanes away from your graphics. Your motherboard and CPU will both support an x16 interface.

Thank you for the quick reply. Any information about what I need to look at in the BIOS to enable it for x16? Currently, it states that the max supported is x8.
