AMD 7970 Link Width x8 Only?

Not sure why my AMD 7970 is only 8x in CPU-Z but shouldnt it in in 16x?
Its slotted on collectedly as far as i know and i have reseated it. Its installed in slot 2
I have no other PCIE devices connected. (i use to have a sound card but no longer have it installed)
In BIOS, i dont see any speed setting regarding 8x or 16x. (I have it set on Auto, ive attached it in the screenshots)
Im using Windows 10 x64 with AMD 19.1.1 drivers
Any suggestions on why it maybe?
