Hello,

my question is, does the Intel Core i7-12700K support also PCIe 3.0? Because in the docs, they this processor modell supports Gen 4 and 5.

The reason why i am asking is that i want to buy a xilinx accelerator card which supports Gen4 and Gen3.

Thanks in advice!

Hello Mirhad,


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.


The PCIe 4.0 is forward and backward compatible, so you will be able to use it, but the card will perform with the 3.0 specifications.
