#PC specs:


Intel core i7-4790


PSU 600W 80Plus Bronze

GPU RX580 4GB Sapphire Nitro+

2TB HDD 7200


Windows 10 (1809)


so i bought the RX580 in january, since i got it i had bad problems with some games, so i tried everything to solve the problem, because at the beginning i noticed that the frecuency of the GPU memory was super unstable, but then, in GPU-Z i saw that the GPU was working at PCIe 2.0 1x ínstead of PCIe 3.0 16x.


So i checked if the GPU card was slightly out of the slot or something like that, but everything was okay, the GPU was fully connected into the PCIe.


so i dont know if the GPU is faulty or what.
