Will GTX560 running on 8x get significant bottleneck? Tags: Graphics Cards Asus SATA Bottleneck Graphics Last response: November 17, 2012 8:35 AM in Graphics & Displays Share malcolm2142 November 17, 2012 7:28:51 AM MB : Asus P7P55D-E CPU : Intel I5 650 3.2Ghz VCard : Asus GTX560 DCII OC Just got a SATA 6Gb SSD and the motherboard requires that I use its I/O Level Up function before I can fully utilize the SATA 6Gb port. The function changes the PCI-E 16x slot to 8x. Does anyone know if it would cause a significant speed reduction on my GTX560's performance?
