I am trying to get PCIe linkspeed information by parsing dmidecode. When I run
sudo dmidecode -t 9
I get a handle that looks like this
Handle 0x001A, DMI type 9, 17 bytes System Slot Information Designation: PCIE1 Type: x8 PCI Express 2 x16 ...
What exactly is "Type: x8 PCI Express 2 x16" telling me? Is it saying that I have a x8 card plugged into a x16 slot? Been digging around for a few hours and can't find any answer. Please help.
