I am getting a bit confused with the whole PCIe limitations of the 2200G when it comes to using it with a dedicated GPU.
Basically I have a 2200G that I'm using with an RX580 on a B450 chipset, that's no problem, runs fine. What I'm wondering is if I add a PCIe x1 device (Namely a Wireless Network Adapter) will it impact my GPU's performance by cutting one of its lanes?
Its probably worth to note that I am not planning to use the M.2 Device slot on this system so these lanes are not being used. Am I correct in assuming that if im not using an m.2 device that the lanes used for this would then be allocated to a second PCIe device instead of taking lanes from the GPU? (As in, shared lanes instead of them being hard locked to only be used by the m.2)
