Need help with upgrades

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

In line with the release of the 3000 series people have begun to say that you might need a pci-e 4.0. 

I was looking at the 3080 for an upgrade and don't have a 4.0 pci-e slot. 

Then I looked into the fact that Intel don't support 4.0 but some of the motherboards have it ready.

 

So my question is how much bottleneck are we looking at with a 3.0 slot. Is it even worth choosing Intel if upgrading since they don't support it yet?

Steve from Gamer Nexus released a video just about it a couple days ago. Search for it on YouTube and you'll see. The difference is minimal, to the point it doesn't matter.

KitGuru also ran benchmarks and on Intel boards in some tests, the CPU seems to have a slight upper edge, which negates the need for PCI Express Gen4 at this moment.
