ML110 Gen9 with H240 ,only pci-e 1.0 x8 (2Gbps) ,not Pci-e 3.0 (8Gbps) in Negotiated PCIe Data Rate

I have question about ML110 Gen9 server,  I add two PCI-E card, one is H240 for HBA for HDD cage, other is PCI-E nvme card with m2 SSD.  I find both them only get PCI-E 1.0 (Gen1)negotiated?  why not get pci-e 3.0(Gen3 ) mode ?

I read the parameter from esxi hassp tool

I use Xeon(R) CPU E5-2650L v4 CPU , Least P99 v2.76 BIOS . H240 card also update to ver 7.0 FW.  Esxi 6.7 u3 or Win server 2016 show same status.

Re: ML110 Gen9 with H240 ,only pci-e 1.0 x8 (2Gbps) ,not Pci-e 3.0 (8Gbps) in Negotiated PCIe Data R

you missed point.

The HPE H240 HBA card don't get pci-e Gen3 x8 speed, only PCI-E 1.0 x8.  also as PCI_E card.

Hardware spec is say ML110 Gen9 and Intel 2650L v4,H240 card all support PCI_E Gen3. why HPE own H240 card and own ML110 motherboard doesn't negotiate Gen3 mode ?
