ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 Card V2 - can't get full bandwith?

I have looked at the ASUS Hyper M.2 X16 Card V2 and it does only support PCl 3.0. When I use Nvm M.2 SSD of the 4th Gen. Will the Asus card be able to use the full bandwith of all 4 M.2 SSD?

It depends if your motherboard supports “pci bifurcation”

There are 2 versions of that card - PCIe 3.0 is the v2 one then there is a Gen4 one that is PCIe 4.0… confusing right? :frowning:

They won’t run at gen 4 speed. But Gen 4 ssd can still run in gen 3 slot/interface.
Doesn’t matter too much anyway. They high speeds of gen 4 are max burst speeds (cache) and chia plotting needs sustained write speed. The sustained write speed doesn’t differ between gen 3 or gen 4, that’s up to the individual ssd and/or controller
