Hello to all asus family… just a silly question. I install my samsung 980 pro nmve on the pcie gen 5 sloton my mobo.( z690 maximus extreme)
Is there any chance of any impact in performance of my desktop? I have seen a lot of videos and read a lot of articles that explain an nmve gen 4 or 5 can be installed on a gen 3 slot with speed limitations and performance but did not found anywhere saying the opposite.. that a gen4 nmve installed on pcie gen5 slot its ok *and wond affect the performance. Any help would be appriciated

Hello,

In your case PCIE will fallback automatically to 4th gen speed and it will work alright.
