I made a new poll to ask whether we should change IONI’s PCI-e 4x connector to PCI-e 8x type to favor higher currents. Please vote and/or leave comments!
4x connector vs 8x connector:
- 4x is shorter and fits easier on custom motherboards (won’t affect IONICUBE as it has 8x already)
- 8x has more pins (98 vs 64 pins) which might be necessary for maximum currents
- 4x to 8x change adds 17 mm length on card edge connector
- 8x card can’t be fitted on 4x socket but 4x socket fits on 8x socket
