Re: Is PCI-E x16 equal to PCI-E 2.0?
It's nothing that's a big deal right now, no realtime rendering program uses all of X16 bandwidth anyway let alone double that. I have a board that runs a single card in X16 2.0 or dual cards in X8 2.0 (same thing as X16 1.0/1.1) either way, you won't see much difference.
