I updated the PC with latest drivers through HP support assist and latest bios. My video card is only running at PCIe X8 instead of X16. I am not sure what is going on? I need to know ASAP if its operating as intended or I have a defective PC on my hands. I will be including a picture.
I also noticed spec wise this seems to be a modded 1080 Ti with LOWER specs compared to the reference Founders Edition. What is up with that HP? Could be the reason why its running at X8 instead of X16? Second picture is a picture of the REAL Ti in gpuz reference founders edition. Note the differences in Pixel Fillrate and Texture Fillrate.
Furthermore regarding the card running at X8 instead of X16. I poked around in Aida64 Extreme and found the following pictures included.
