I've done a lot of searching but still cannot get a clear answer re Mac Pro 2,1 video card PCI link speed.
I have seen references to this in Netkas's forums but at the time didn't think it was so important ( foolish).
I currently have a flashed Vapor-X HD 5870 in my 2,1 MP. ( EFI boot screens OK with DVI - VGA )
In Sys Info/PCI Cards it shows the link speed as 2.5 GT/s.
Is this a built in limit for the 2,1 Mac Pro ?
My questions :
1. Which Mac Pro model will yield the maximum PCI speed with my present 5870 ( is that speed 5 GT/s ?
2. Is anyone getting the full 5 GT/s & if so what is your setup.
Many thanks in advance.EDIT : Just found the answer here : https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/364/1982
I'll be getting a Mac Pro 4,1
