Hello, you should check your BIOS maybe there are some settings on how to devide the PCI-Ex lanes when slots are in use.

Or you could try remove the remove gpu, boot into pc only with onboard, delete drivers, turn of pc, put gpu in and boot into windows and reinstall the drivers.

Also in reality i think you will notice maybe from 0.5% to 1% performance increase by running x16 2.0
Because this is only a entry level cards.

Edit:
Now i only see this is a laptop, it could be only 8x is linked to the gpu. And the other lanes are used for other hardware in the laptop

I geuss you gotta wait for the laptop guru's to come in smile.gif

Nothing is wrong. There is almost no standard in the laptop world. I don't think anyone can answer your question unless they are familiar with your exact laptop model.

If it's comparable to desktops, I'd believe it's the card configuration that sets it to x8 rather than x16. I remember when some cards you could only SLI/Crossfire in x8 rather than x16 speeds. I could be completely wrong as it might be a motherboard limit as well. Check to see if you have any BIOS updates, then go into the BIOS to see if there are any settings for the slot.
