I have a motherboard Asus Z590-PLUS and I have an issue with the pci e 4.0 and

my processor is an Intel i9-10900K CPU @ 3.70 GHz - 10th gen

When I open TechPowerUp GPU-Z ver. 2.38.0 it shows me that I am using PCI-Express x16 3.0 instead of PCI-Express x16 4.0, check the image below:


How I can fix this issue ?

I wanna use PCI-Express x16 4.0 !

Thanks in advance.

PCIe 4 is only available with the 11th Gen processors..

Thanks a lot for the information, I have read the same answer today in another forum.

You may want to wait to make any decisions regarding the processor. I have a Z590 board coming soon and will be testing the 11th Gen on that. I was not happy with its performance on the Z490 board..

I got the Z590 board and the i9 11900k and I am happy with it. I am seeing a doubling in PCIe Bandwidth and M.2 PCIe drive.

I started out testing the 11th Gen on a Z490 board and was very disappointed. With the improvements I am seeing going to the Z590, I am glad I took that leap..

I never tested the 10th Gen on the Z590...
