PCIe I/O slots may supply less bus bandwidth than what is physically defined for the slot.
Expansion card slot description
The x1, x4, and x16 designators describe the mechanical length of the slot. The number in
parentheses lists the number of electrical PCIe lanes routed to the expansion slot. For example, x16(4)
means that the expansion slot is mechanically a x16 length connector, with four PCIe lanes connected.
Use the following table to determine PCIe card compatibility.
