    why have a pcie 4.0 ? In practice, there is no difference between PCI-E 2.0
    PCI Express version 2.0X16 8.0 GB/s
    PCI Express version 3.0X16 15.75 GB/s
    PCI Express version 4.0X16 31.51 GB/s

    its mostly for nvme storage, that you will see a benefit, not quite yet with GPUs, not even a 2080ti saturates pcie 3

    I would have said the same thing until the 5500xt came out. That’s some seriously messed up s**t right there.
