Asus and Gigabyte perhapsYes.
Every thread I've found has been using a 44-lane sky-x.
I know bifurcation is a bios feature.
Curious beside the EVGA dark, taichi, msi gaming carbon what other boards have the capability.
There's no confusion about distribution.Asus and Gigabyte perhaps
Its not that only 44 lane cpu are described. In specification of motherboard it is clearly mentioned that lane distribution for cpus in terms of pci express bandwidth
Ok now i get where you stand but then why dont you just get a 7900x rather then looking forward to bifurcation?There's no confusion about distribution.
I started the thread to see if anyone has used a 28 lane CPU, and split the 8x usually left to gpu2 into 4x-4x.
I need to expand out to 4 nvme drives.
Current board has 2x 960 Pros to pch, workloads aren't that latency sensitive.
I'm consolidating some monoliths at work and would like to see if nvme raid is even worthwhile.
Not like we don't have FC and iscsi shelves, it's more moving the workload to functions and K8's at scale I'd like the extra iops.
Totally separate issue than lane assignment.
It's like at some point if I can use the reaoucres, I'll go get a 7900x down the road just to build a larger storage pool.
Maybe Optane 905 sould be a sonsideration.
