Would the on-board wi-fi solution use PCiE lanes from my CPU or from the chipset?

For example: If I were to use the wi-fi ports on the motherboards I/O, will I be losing GPU performance?

Another question: If I were to use a network card I would lose performance, because my CPU would be dedicating lanes correct?

No, using wifi won't slow your GPU down.  Nor would using a network card.

 

Where do people get these off the wall PCIe lane questions?

no it should NOT be using the CPU lanes. the chipset has lanes of its own so it will use them for the wifi. also, most GPUs can't use all the bandwith from a full 16x slot, so even if it uses the CPU lanes, you will have no problem. 

 

for the network card, i am not positive, but i am almost certain that it wouldn't impact the performance, like said above.

It may seem off the wall to you, however my logic is something like as follows: Devices within PCIe slots, use PCIe lanes. A system's CPU, and Chipset use lanes of their own. I'm not sure where it's specified what devices are using which slots/lanes. Or even if that's a relevant question. Electrical engineering is nuanced topic

Holy shit, 24 lanes just on the chipset? So I could use pretty much anything in the smaller slots without dedicating cpu lanes then.?

Thanks for the picture by the way. I'll be sure to save that
