Need help with pcie

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi I’ve just got a new build wich doesn’t have wifi.

 

specs;

ryzen 5 2600

asus prime b450m-a

gtx 1650 super oc

neo forza faye 3200mhz 16gb

 

my question is adding a wifi pcie card will that decrease GPU performance due to less lanes? I’m not sure with pcie express lanes and how they work?

 

16x gpu

1x wireless adapter

how does it work out equally with much performance drop?

Zen+ also has 20 PCIe lanes iirc? So your GPU will run at full 16x bandwidth, even if you install a WIFI card.

Regardless, your 1650S will barely saturate even a 4x 3.0 slot, so I wouldn't worry about it too much.
