    Software to monitor PCI-E bandwidth usage

    here is my MB it has 5x 3.0 16x slots and 1x 2.0 16x slot (PCH maybe?) My CPU does not support 80 lanes. It only supports 40 lanes. So I am forced to have to decide on what I want to run at 16x or 8x or 4x or 2x (not sure if 2x is an option but you get my point) So If I have all 5 filled. I have...

    Is it normal for 100GB M-Discs to take 6x longer to read from than to write to?

    I was more curious about the automated CRC features than speed.

    Software to monitor PCI-E bandwidth usage

    I can do it on my 1650v3 X99 (IIRC) and other motherboards that aren't that old. IB-Skylake. How else would your computer divvy up lanes between 5 or 7 slots? Your CPU never has enough lanes. If you have 4x 16 slots and like a few 8x or 4x slots and your CPU has 40 or 56 lanes you can't run them...

    Software to monitor PCI-E bandwidth usage

    Modern GPUs are very much PCI-E bandwidth starves especially some games show over 50% hit in FPS. That AMD 4x card is trash even in PCI-E 4.0 going to 3.0 murders it. It is a chunk card everyone should avoid running in anything other than PCI-E 4.0 ~30% hit in FPS in PCIe 3.0 in this game. The...

    Software to monitor PCI-E bandwidth usage

    So on ATX or EATX motherboards where you have like 5 or 7 PCI-E slots, you can set in BIOS how many lanes you want to use for whatever slot. So if I have a 1650v3 I have only 40 lanes. In a hypothetical situation with 6 devices, I would want GPU gets 16x, GPU gets 16x, M.2 RAID gets 16x, HBA...

    Is it normal for 100GB M-Discs to take 6x longer to read from than to write to?

    I just use teracopy and use SHA512 for crc. No idea if its better than what your using. Never heard of what your using. Teracopy is a god send though for me.

    Recommendations for a multiple m.2 PCI-E AIC

    whats bifurcation? I have a GigaByte z390 Aorus Pro-CF so its a highend board but never heard of bifurcation before (or forgot what it is lol) It's quite affordable, I remember some of the 4x things a year or so ago were like 100s so $50 ain't back. No hardware RAID but not a big deal...

    Is it normal for 100GB M-Discs to take 6x longer to read from than to write to?

    absolutely agree. Whenever I use a CD/DVD the absolute first thing I do is make an ISO of it on my SSD. It makes using them so much easier and faster. If you get those X-Ray/MRI DVDs always make an ISO/rip the files to use them on your SSD. Same concept here. Make an ISO then from the ISO take...

    Software to monitor PCI-E bandwidth usage

    this sounds interesting. It would be nice to monitor to see if your GPU is PCI Express limited or if other things are saturating it. If your using all your PCI-E lanes and need to run things on a limited speed like GPU at 8x, HBA 4x, M.2 2x, and 10GbE as 2x. You could see if a device is not...

    Recommendations for a multiple m.2 PCI-E AIC

    I need to get a multi m.2 PCI-E add-in card. It can just be multiple m.2 slots or something more advanced and offer hardware RAID and other features. It just depends on what is offered for the price. Does anyone own any of these or have experience/knowledge on them and recommendations? Thanks

    Is there a USB dual M.2 NVME RAID enclosure? There are SATA ones :/

    I thought I saw someone else make a thread like this but can't find it ATM. I am looking for preferably a USB 4 or USB3.2 20Gbps dual bay or more M.2 NVME enclosure. I know they had USB 3.1 10Gbps M.2 SATA RAID enclosures but I can't find a modern version of it. Has anyone found one or know if...

    I need a USB 4 PCIe card or USB 3.2 2x2 20Gbps PCIe card

    I need to buy preferably a PCIe USB4 card and preferably a USB 4 M.2 NVME enclosure. I need the enclosure to also have enough space while opened to support an M.2 to U.2 adapter. If I can't get USB 4 I am willing to settle on USB 3.2 2x2 20Gbps but really want to get USB 4.0 if it's not...

    Need help picking a USB 3.2 20Gbps or USB 4 PCIe card and comparable USB3.2/4 M.2 NVMe Enclosure

    Mobile stream box BOYS!!! A must-read ^^

    Obviously, bandwidth and data limitations.....Do you not understand how much bandwidth and data it would be to stream 4 unprocessed streams via any connection let alone on 4G/5G in a remote area. The point of a local stream box is to reduce that data into a practical amount that can be sent over...

    Mobile stream box BOYS!!! A must-read ^^

    WTF are you talking about? Can you use coherent thoughts? I never even mentioned 4.6v or 5.2v you are making shit up. You clearly didn't read what I wrote and have no idea what you are talking about. You should be ashamed for even posting that nonsense and wasting my time while I have been...
