X1 - x16 Tags: Graphics Cards Apps Components Storage Last response: June 23, 2010 8:27 PM in Storage Share kitteh_ June 22, 2010 9:42:54 PM I've seen drives, graphics cards, etc. on quiz apps. [i.e. PSU checks] when it has asked me whether my components are x1, x2, x3 through to x16. I assume these are the speeds they run at but how do I know what mine are? Thanks More about : x16 megamanx00 a c 106 U Graphics card June 22, 2010 9:58:35 PM I believe you are referring to the number of PCI-E lanes. The common numbers are 1x, 4x, 8x, and 16X. A 4x or 8x slot for a GPU may be like a 16x slot, but still only have 8 or 4 lanes. kitteh_ June 22, 2010 10:03:58 PM megamanx00 said:I believe you are referring to the number of PCI-E lanes.
