DL380 G5 PCI-e gen type?

It looks like it's only gen 1 - Can anyone confirm whether DL380 G5 server is PCI-e gen 1 or gen2? Thanks

Re: DL380 G5 PCI-e gen type?

It is PCIe Gen1. The G5's came-out before Gen2 (at least before it was prevalent) G6 and later have PCIe Gen2.

Admittedly, the quickspecs for the DL380 G5 don't say anything about generation (web search on "DL380 G5 quickspecs") - probably because it predated Gen2 and so not much point in generation distinction. But that the DL380 G6 and G7 quickspecs (same method) explicitly state Gen2, it does suggest that the G5 were not Gen2 :)
