PCI-Express 1.0 x16 vs. PCI-Express 2.0 x16 - is there a tangible difference?

We all know that the difference in the speed of transmission over the pci-express bus has doubled, but a number of issues are related: 1) Are all the bus capabilities used by modern video cards or will there be no visible difference if you insert, for example, GeForce GTX460 in PCIe 1.0 and 2.0? 2) How to check the exact throughput? I found the PCIe Speed ​​Test v0.2, but it only works on ATi video cards 3) Are there any motherboards with honest pci-express 2.1 or is there no difference be... Read more

In this regard, I decided to replace the card... Read more

Algorithm for polling PCI devices?

Good day! There is a Spartan 3 FPGA connected to the PCI bus. Connection diagram is available. It is necessary to write the firmware for the FPGA, so that when polling the PCI devices of the OS, it would find the FPGA and would require a driver for it (i.e. only configuration transactions are needed). Where to find the algorithm for polling PCI devices? It is desirable with an indication of what conclusion of what level the signal should be, its level, duration. Read more
