    PCI-Ex16: 2
    PCI-E Gen: Gen2 (1x16, 1x4)
    PCI-Ex4: N/A
    PCI-Ex1: 1


    Slots

    • 1 PCI Express x16 slot (PCI_E2) with x16 operation (PCI Express Bus SPEC V2.0 compliant)
    • 1 PCI Express x16 slot (PCI_E3) with x4 operation (PCI Express Bus SPEC V2.0 compliant)
    • 1 PCI Express x1 slot
    • 3 PCI slots, support 3.3V/ 5V PCI bus Interface.
