GTX 1060 using PCIE x8 instead of x16

mikevh

 

I have a GTX 1060 card, plugged into the first ( closest to CPU ) PCIx slot which is supposed to be x16.  The card is supposed to be x16 compatable.

Does anyone know how to convince the card to connect using x16?

Do you have a ryzen APU? half of the PCIe lanes go to the integrated graphics.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Trash beauty:

Yes, a 10gb network card. I just saw this in the manual from asus.  I'll pull that card and see if that does it.

Even then, I wouldn't worry about it. Even a GTX 1080 doesn't start suffering in performance until you hit the equivalent of PCIe 3.0 x2.
