HI, i bought MSI Radeon RX 5500 XT MECH 8GB and i check in newest GPU-Z that it operate, even under load, on PCI 4.0 x8, is it max for that card? Spec on MSI website not specify that parameter.
My motherborad is Gigabyte B550M S2H (rev. 1.x)

all RX 5500 XT are x8 only as the GPU itself has a cut down PCI-E bus width for its interface to make it a cheaper model as its a Card with a Defective GPU with a Faulty PCI-E Bus that AMD Sell as a lower Tier Card by repurposing lets say RX 5600 XT chip that had half its Cores defective and get recycled into a lower end Skew.

At least you not have a PCIE 3.0 board so you will not lose any performance most GPU will run just as well at PCIE-4.0X8 as they will at PCIE-4.0x16
