Post #165969223 added 09-22-2023 6:23 PM by kedwatz in Deal Talk
The slots are the same. It's when there is a conflict between mobo gen and cable gen. Yes, pcie 3.0 devices will work in a 4.0 slot but when you introduce the riser cable it causes problems. For...

can you cite your source? PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 are forward and backwards compatible to each other. the limitation is the bandwidth PCIe 3.0. Are you saying this riser cable physically won't fit into a...

Right. The riser cable is where the issues come up. You need to match the cable to the motherboard pcie gen or it won't display. There are other caveats but gen 3 cable in a gen 4 slot wouldn't work...

PCIe is also backward compatible. If you have a PCIe 4.0 graphics card you can use it with a motherboard designed for PCIe 3.0; however, the card's available bandwidth would be limited to the...

It doesn't work for me at least for certain settings/models. Technically you can change your PCI-E speed back to Gen 3 in bios but when I do that, my 4080 stuttered like crazy outputting 5 fps on Red...

The way the cables work is weird. The cable and the pcie slot need to match generations basically. If your GPU supports up to gen 3 but you have a gen 4 cable and gen 4 slot it would still work I...

Is that only if you have a gen 4 gpu? It would seem silly if i got no display using a gen 3 extension with a gen 3 card. Still kinda wanta know how it even knows what gen it is if its a passive...

It is critical because if your mobo is pcie gen4 the cable will not work. You will get no display.

Yeah I updated my BIOS after 3 years (which reset all the settings), forgot I had a 3.0 riser and wasted a few hours troubleshooting why I had no GPU signal just last week. I would not recommend a...

Occasionally my bios lost settings (possibly every 2, 3 months) , if the default settings are loaded, I have to open the case, disconnect the graphic card, force pcie 3.0 again.

It could matter if your GPU is PCIE x4 or maybe x8 (6400 xt), but for normal gpus it doesnt matter yet. No amount of poor optimization will make your riser a bottleneck

Eh, a recent Gamers Nexus video showed that PCIe 3 only slows down a 4090 by 1-3% at most (on one test of many, margin of error). I have one and as far as risers go it's a well made one. The "ROG...

is it? I'm still reading that some games released in 2023 may utilize PCIe 4.0 drivers, but it hardly improves performance. The bulk of the optimization responsibility are still with the game dev. It...
