How can I tell if my PCIe ports are PCIe 2.0 or 2.1? I have one x16 and three x1. I'm interested in the difference between the two, figuring out which one I have and backwards compatability. I've been focusing more on the server side and haven't had much time to look at the newer desktop technologies. Thanks
I looked up whitepapers from Intel and I see one says it is PCI e 1.1 and the other says 2.2. I looked up chipset info for 82801 PCI bridge which says it is 1.1 BUT I also have listed a ICH10 Family PCI Express Root port which says PCI e 2.2. That just confuses me more.
what about the x1 slots? Also, How did you know to go with the ICH10 and not the 82801? One white peper asays 1.1 the other says 2.2? Basically, what mady you look at the ICH10 specs over the other? Thanks
