They sure look inviting, but I'd like to know if anyone's had any personal experience with them. Cablesaurus hasn't had them for much more than a couple weeks or so, so it's a pretty new item.

Do they work on old & new motherboards? Does the BIOS ever have a problem with multiple video cards on a single motherboard (talking about older motherboards here, in the days before Crossfire)

What kind of compatibility do these things have? 100% -- 90% -- 50%?

Thanks,

Matthew

You kidding me :O

Read the whole thread, and look at all the positive feedback lmao Tongue Ordered 3 for myself, 2 of them were wrong items, but Cablesaurus replaced them easily and quickly, AMAZING service.

I don't think motherboards have anything to do with it, only the OS.

Linux can handle up to 8 gpus, Windows up to 4. However, with the new 11.6 drivers, Windows can also go to 8 I think.

What do you mean by compatibility? I'm gonna say 100% because they work on all cards?


*facepalm

Woops I realized that you said PCI to PCI-e, and not PCI-e to PCI-e. Sad

It's better to be pissed off, than to be pissed on.

Who knows man? We are all doomed you should be selling GPUs instead of buying PCI adapters.

Overclocking = money? Greatest full time hobby ever!

Who said we should all be selling our GPUs?

I'd love for you to provide a link/quote where I said that.

If I tried to link to it there would be a list of 434 links. Every single one of your posts.

Seriously though, you can't produce a single one.
