CF @ PCIE2.0 8x vs 16x
Sep 14, 2008, 1:54 AM
I was just wondering a CF 4870 on pcie2.0 8x links vs on pcie2.0 16xlinks, is there a performance gap? I own a P5Q deluxe and i am planning to get a 4870 and get another a bit later down the road.

Yes there is, but not enough to justify yet another mobo upgrade to me. P35 does x16 x4 CF; P45 x8 x8 CF; X38/48 x16 x16 CF.
