Catalyst Reporting x8 instead of x16
Oct 10, 2010, 11:28 AM
I have a 4850 HSI card and when check out the hardware info in catalyst it reports the following:
Maximum Bus Setting PCI Express 2.0 x8
Why isn't this x16? And how can I get it to x16? My motherboard is a Biostar 790GX 128M

It was in the first slot to begin with. When I saw the x8, I put it in the other. Still no go.

Re-seat the card? If you aren't mounted it properly then it can show the same result like yours...
