PCIe is usually backwards and forwards compatible. So you can use a 2.0 card in a 3.0 or 4.0 slot. Also, a new 3.0 graphics card can work in a 2.0 slot (but at a slower speed), etc.

Most Mac users have an HDX card in a 5,1 MacPro with 2.0 slots, while most PC users have had them in 3.0 slots for a long time.

Itíll work fine in the new MacPro.
