PCI to PCIe adn GFX card

Post by javierdlr »

Hi, just to know if is possible to use latest HD gfx cards (ATI HD4xxx 5xxx 6xxx) with AmigaONE XE, or just if there existe such gfx cards in PCI version.

Has anyone tried?

TIA

I have not heard of anyone trying anthing above the Radeon HD 4350 yet.

There are PCI versions of the Radeon HD4350 and 5450.

Check the motherboard compatability .

The speed may not be too good.

Comapre to my Sam 440ep-Flex with a PCI to PCIe Adaper when using a PCIE version of the Radeon HD4350.

Yes it works. But only in a 33MHZ PCI Slot. Your Aone does not have a USB and DMA Fix. Works only without the fixes.
But, it is very very slow as compare as AGP.
