Crossfire & PCIe lanes

Go to solution Solved by airdeano,

the x370 tomahawk lane assignments are shortened: 3 x PCIe 3.0 x16 slots (support x16/x4/x1)

so only the first x16 runs x16 the second x16 slot will only run in x4 not a normal x8 (hence the terrible performance in crossfire)

only real way to correct is a better laid out board.

 

So I have an RX 580 and an RX 480 in my system. 
The RX 480 I only use for Folding atm.
Everytime I update my radeon software it enables CroosFire again, but the games run slower in crossfire then just on the RX 580.
Somewhere I found that the 580 is running on PCIe x16 and the RX 480 on PCIe x4. I dont recall where I found it in some settings menu. probably in the amd software.

Now, I wanna try and run them in CrossFire but the PCIe x4 on the 480 gives me terrible FPS.
Can i do something about this? or is it PCIe lane bound?
Im using the 8700K on a MSI Z370 TOMAHAWK.

 

I am here to learn, please correct me if im wrong or you see me putting bs on your screen!

it could be PCIe lane bound. Is the RX 480 on the second X16 slot?
