nForce PCI-E versions Generalized question about PCI-E version
First Post, hopefully in the correct section.


Recently I became curious as to the different versions of PCI-e.

1.0 - 1.1 - 2.0

Am I correct in my assumption that the version is controlled by the chipset?


If so, I have been to nVidias spec sheets for a few and they do not list thier verion, nor does the mobo manufacturer.

Is there a chart I should be looking for that lists Chipsets and their PCI-e Version?



I have also seen remarks suggesting that PCI-e peripherials are backward compatible, but I would feel better matching the correct version to the peripherial, plus it removes the possibility of the feature not owrking as intended :D


Thanks for any info and your time.

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""
Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

If the driver has an issue, don't be a fool, remove it.

Just because you can, does not mean you should.
