PCI-e is Not PCI

PCI Express (Peripheral Component Interconnect Expres, PCIe, PCI-e) is designed to replace the older PCI, PCI-X and AGP bus standards. There is still older PCI slot on some motherboard, however our converter card only support PCI-e standard. PCI-e card does not work on PCI slot, and vice versa.

PCI-e and PCI slot looks similair, the easiest way to distiguish between them is the slot space. PCI-e have a shorter slot space in front, and PCI have a longer slot space in front.

 

PCI and PCI-e slot

Make sure you put Half Size PCI-e to Desktop PCI-e Adapter Card or NGFF M.2 to Desktop PCI-e Adapter Card in the PCI-e slot.
