Which video cards saturate PCI-e 1.0? Tags: Graphics Cards PCI Express Graphics Last response: April 18, 2009 9:51 PM in Graphics & Displays Share goosetheforce April 16, 2009 12:59:39 AM Hi all, I remember reading some time ago that new video cards were not yet able to saturate the bandwidth of PCI-express 1.0. I don't imagine that's still true. My mobo has a PCI-e 1.0 (1.1?) slot. If I bought, for example, a Radeon 4890, would I only see a fraction of that card's throughput?

Next gen ultra high end cards (x2) might start to feel light bottleneck Hopefully your slot is running x16. uncfan_2563 a b U Graphics card April 16, 2009 3:02:56 AM well yeah i dont think anything bottlenecks that bus yet. also in future generations, you can just run SLI if u have it so u keep getting good performance Related resources Video Card Specifications and PCIe saturation Information - Forum Video card for my pcie 1.0 mb - Forum Will a pci express 2.1 video card work in a PCI-E 1.0 slot? - Forum My motherboard has PCIE 1.0 and My video Card Is PCIE 2.1..?

Get the answer cjl a b U Graphics card April 16, 2009 3:57:28 AM I think that the 4870x2 and GTX295 might fully saturate a PCIE-x16 v1. No single GPU card will though, so I wouldn't worry about it even for a card as powerful as a 4890 or a GTX285. goosetheforce April 16, 2009 4:56:17 AM Thanks for the helpful replies.
