    Alienware 18 и M18X R2 motherboard does not support Pci 16x, it looks like only 8x and how does this affect performance?

    No impact on performance. Use a benchmark tool and compare your results to others

    No consumer grade GPU in the world saturates even 8 Pcie lanes at the moment, which is why halving the number of lanes from 16 to 8 doesn't affect performance.
