PCI-E running on x8 speed?


Recommended Posts

GPU-Z shows that my PCI-E is using x8 speed while my friends laptop shows PCI-E x16 @ x16.

My specs:

FSC Amilo xa 2528-22p

AMD TL-60 x2 (2ghz)

GeForce 8600 GS 256mb

2 gb ram

My friend has a 8400 GS and his runs on x16 speed? Whats wrong?

if you both have the same card, then your motherboard only has an 8 lane pci e slot. having a 16 wont actually give any better performance as you both have the same card.

(unless you have the DDR2 version as opposed to his DDR3 version).

Either way that card is probably too slow to need 16x anyway.
