Check the main site this week. X10SL7-F review imminent.

Hi brutalizer,

Intel Xeon v3 processor supports 16 lanes (PCIe gen3) in total.
Additional 8 lanes (PCIe gen2) provides by Intel chipset C222/224/226.
Information from xeon-e3-1200v3-brief.pdf

So, max-lanes-per-slot you can get is one real x16 (PCIe gen3) slot provides by processor and one real x8 (PCIe gen2) slot provides by chipset.
Which I search also. :)

One suspect is Supermicro X10SLM+-LN4F. Sadly, no manual available to verify slot logic.

Thanks for the information. I did not know this. Good info.

Is it possible to run M1015 in an x8 slot, but configured at lower speed as x2 or x4 slot? Or must it run in a full x8 slot?

What does this mean in your link? "1x PCI-E 2.0 x2 (in x8) slot". Could I insert the M1015?

In my links, the X10SLM-LN4F does not run full speed. The PCIe v3 run x8 speed in an x16 slot, why is that? Are there any mobos that run full speed?

Your M1015 (PCIe gen2 x8) card will work in a x8 Slot with only 2 lanes wired. Consider, if you generate more bandwidth than 2 lanes provide, bandwidth will be throttling of cause.

In your links? In this quicksheet X10SLM_-LN4F we have:
1x PCI-E 3.0 x16
1x PCI-E 2.0 x2 (in x8)
Lets hope PCIe gen3 is a real 16 lanes wired slot.

We already did a main site post on the rumored Intel Xeon E3-1200V3 lineup including a comparison to V1 and V2 chips. Do expect that we will be benchmarking the chips top to bottom again come June. Here is the matrix from that post:

I am confused. This table is showing E3-1230L V3 is dual core processor (2/4). According the Intel homepage it is a quadcore processor (4/8).
Typing misstake?
