Fits the latest generation of expansion slots in Macs and PCs 07/03/06
24IO and 2408mk3 can now be used with PCI express-equipped computers
PCI Express is the latest high-speed expansion slot technology found in many high-performance PC desktops and the latest generation Power Mac G5 towers from Apple. The slots are a different size from the previous generation which may not be good news if you are upgrading but have some older PCI cards. Users of MOTU's range of audio interfaces will still be able to use them with the latest computers, however, by upgrading to a new version of their PCI card.
The new PCIe (PCI Express) version of the PCI-424 card is now shipping, allowing users of MOTU's PCI-based recording system for Mac and PC to take full advantage of today's fastest PCIe-equipped Macs and PCs.
The new card is now available for purchase as part of a 2408mk3, HD192 or 24I/O core system from authorized MOTU resellers. Customers can specifically ask for the PCIe (PCI Express) version of the 424 core system they would like to purchase.
MOTU users who currently own a PCI-324 or 424 core system and wish to purchase a PCIe-424 card to run their core system on a PCIe-equipped computer can order the PCIe-424 card directly from the "Upgrades" tab at motu.com.
The earlier PCI-X (3.3 volt) version of the PCI-424 card is also still available for purchase from the "Upgrades" tab at motu.com. This card is suitable for older computers that have 3.3-volt PCI-X slots. More from:
