    Hi, I was checking my mac mini 2011 information under windows, and it seems that PCI express link width is at x8 instead of the maximum x16. Can somebody verify this information on their mac mini?
    It may be that being a low profile machine not all links can be used, but I had a macbook pro that died (graphic card) and the first symptom was a line width stuck at x1.

    You can check this information either on system profiler o using a tool like CPU-Z under windows.

    Thanks!

    You have the Radeon or Intel HD version?

    For the Radeon, 8X is normal, it even say so in the service manual.
