question

Is this device compatible with PCIE 2.0 slots?
Asked by: Scotty W.
The performance should be the same if you are not sending data to all four ports simultaneously. PCIe 2.0x4 = 2000 MB/s should allow near full performance from two ports simultaneously. If the card uses the ASM2142 (PCIe 3.0x2), then a single USB port can be 20% faster than a card that uses the ASM1142 (PCIe 2.0x2). The PCIe switch can convert the two PCIe 3.0x2 USB controllers to PCIe 2.0x4.
