    New Intel PCIe SSDs

    Similar questions to this thread I know:

    http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...Ie-3-0-x4-Card

    If I have an SLI configuration using 2 slots (slots 1 and 4 on page 1-18 in the manual), but then add a PCIe SSD to slot 6, I guess my SLI video cards will change to x16, x8, correct?

    Second question is whether it's worth it? Real world benchs no change, benchmarking big change I suspect.

    That sounds correct.

    Thanks. But is it worth the time and money? I just don't know yet.

    Now I am a bit unclear on this PCIe usage. I thought that if I had 2 way SLI in slots 1 and 4, a sound card in slot 3, that if I installed this new SSD in slot 6 that my video cards would go to x16, x8. I am not so sure now. The sound card is an x1 device. The SSD PCIe is an x4 device. I could install the latter SSD in either slot 6 or slot 2. I think my 2 video cards would still run at x16. ?? Anyone know definitely here? Chino's response was that x16,x8 sounds correct, but do we know for sure?? Thanks.
