Intel Optane 905p on x4 PCIE 3.0 PCH Slot

Go to solution Solved by Electronics Wizardy,

Optane will still work fine off the pch lanes.  The performance difference is tiny, and you won't fill the dmi as its very rare to be doing sequential speeds and using other things on the dmi.

 

But for almost all users, esp for gaming, just get a nand ssd, the difference is tiny and you probably won't notice it.

So I am using a Gigabyte AORUS Z390 Master, I know for a fact that an overclocked 2080 ti can saturate a CPU 8x PCIE 3.0 Lane and while the 2-3% performance drop is mild, it does defeat the point of overclocking if I'm bottlenecking. As such I am not fond of the idea of splitting my CPU lanes to give one to my 905p, which can only use 4 lanes anyways. My question is if a dedicated x4 PCIE 3.0 PCH slot will effect the 905p's performance? Latency? Actual throughput? Since the 905p relies on low latency processing of small files is latency a cumulative problem?

Thanks for the reply, the rig is definitely not about practicality at all, it's an optimized performance cost doesn't matter sort of thing. Ideally trying to get the most gaming performance I can. Admitably the SSD isn't going to impact gaming performance at all, but I figured while I'm dropping all that money on other expensive parts, might as well get the best hard drive on the market. I had considered going LGA 2066 and running a 7980XE, but it doesn't actually perform better in most games next to the most recent benchmarks of the i9-9900k, so its optimizing in a direction I don't care for. That said, I am definitely running into some serious PCIE Lane restrictions that make me wonder if it's worth the i9-9900k. After all, even if it is the best CPU for gaming because of its single thread capacity and architecture, that does me very little good if I'm choked by limited PCIE lanes, particularly since the 2080 ti benefits from 16x slots, and the absolute 'BEST' that you can do on the Z390 chipset is SLI in an 8/8 configuration... I still haven't decided if I'm going to radically rethink this whole build or not.. We'll see.

What all are you running?

 

SLI gpus on x8 really won't make a big differnce, a few percent at most. Id just run a single gpu though.
