[SOLVED] Why is my 2.0x16 Card running at 2.0x8?

I own a low end PC that has a Low Profile ZOTAC 2gb GeForce GT 730 GPU.
My motherboard is an ASUS ASRock A320M-HDV Rv. 1.04 and
My CPU is an AMD Ryzen 3 1200 @ 3.1 (Summit Ridge)
When I use freeware like CPU-Z it tells me that the mainboard's max supported is x8 even though I understood both this processor and the motherboard itself is supposed to support PCI 3.0x16.
Any help is appreciated!

The gt730 has a pci express 2.0 x 8 limitation.

The issue is the GPU not the motherboard
Thank you so much! This was the missing info I needed. I'm looking to upgrade soon and I wanted to make sure it was not on the mobo side of things. Take care!

Are you only using one PCIE slot or two? If you are utilizing more than one PCIE slot, even a PCIE 4.0 X 16 slot will drop down to PCIE 4.0 X 8. For the record, PCIE 4.0 X 8 has the same performance as PCIE 3.0 X 16.
