Is this PCI-E 2.0 Tags: Motherboards Asus Compatibility PCI Express Last response: October 15, 2010 3:47 AM in Motherboards Share Anonymous a b V Motherboard October 14, 2010 3:06:42 PM My MoBo is Asus P5G41T-M LE is this PCIE 2.0 EDIT: Also is PCI-E 3.0 Backwards compatible More about : pci Gekko Shadow a b V Motherboard October 14, 2010 3:32:14 PM It does not seem it is PCIe 2.0 - Couldn't find anything that said it was 2.0, so more than likely it's not =P. And yes 3.0 will be backwards compatible =) Linky hurr~ m 0 l tecmo34 a c 235 V Motherboard a b Ĉ ASUS October 14, 2010 4:46:14 PM Gekko Shadow is correct on both accounts... It is a PCIe 1.0 board not PCIe 2.0 ( http://www.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=qFAkfcBpV5GErXGu ) and PCIe 3.0 will be backwards compatible. m 0 l Related resources PCIe-2.0 x16 (x4 mode) Scaling Bandwidth Ratio - Forum pcie 2.0 or pcie 3.0 - Forum Will a pcie 3.0 GPU work in a 2.0 slot? - Forum Do I need a Ivy Bridge CPU in order to run a PCIE 3.0 Card in a PCIE 2.0 slot? - Forum Will a R9 270x which a PCI-E 3.0 card apply to a PCI-E 2.0 slot? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Because im assuming they all will work with each other just at slower speeds? m 0 l rolli59 a c 1131 V Motherboard a c 302 Ĉ ASUS October 14, 2010 9:32:24 PM It is not really bad. Even the highest powered GPU's to day hardly notice the difference between 1.0 and 2.0. You are correct on your assumption on compatibility and speed. m 0 l Gekko Shadow a b V Motherboard October 14, 2010 9:39:25 PM ^+1 Rolli is indeed correct. With most games, PCIe is still not at a point where you will lose a significant amount of performance. Maybe in benchmarks you will be at a loss, but if you don't do major gaming you'll be ok. =) m 0 l Anonymous a b V Motherboard October 14, 2010 10:38:23 PM Wasnt it the GTX295 that was the first card that you could see the diffrence a tiny bit? m 0 l Gekko Shadow a b V Motherboard October 15, 2010 3:47:31 AM The "tiny bit" is like... Say a slice of pizza with 5 pepperoni's ( ) is PCIe 2.0 Now we drop to PCIe 1.0 - take away say 2-3 pepperoni's. That pizza is still gonna taste dam good (especially if your hungry xD) regardless of the missing pepperoni's =). Sorry for the analogy - i was hungry xD m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
