Crossfire 5870 2GB Dual x16 vs Dual x8 vs x16+x8 - Page 2

post #11 of 12
umm in that test the x8s are all on pci-e 1.0 whereas the 16x is 2.0

I think that would be the more likely cause of the lower performance

Why worry about it though buddy, just get a biostar ta890fxe and you shall have your precious dual 16x slots without breaking the bank
