Will Kona 3 card work on Intel Quad 4
on Feb 25, 2008 at 8:51:54 pm

We are currently running FCP Studio 2 on a Dual 2 ghz Power PC g5. We have a Kona3 card installed. We have another G5 in house that was recently purchased and would love to swap machines.

The new machines is a 2x 2.66 ghz Dual Core Intel Xeon.

Will this Kona3 card work with the new machine. Any issues?

thanks

Not possible. The Kona 3 only works in the G5 Quad 2.5Ghz machine and up. That was the only G5 PCIe machine. We have one of those machines here and we are running a Kona 3 in it.

If you have a Dual 2Ghz PowerPC, then you are running the Kona 2. We also have one of those machines and it is running the Kona 2.

The new intel machines require the Kona 3 or Kona LHe.

Sorry, I was misinformed. We have the KONA LH. Knowing that will this work on the Intel?

thanks

Hi Walter:

"Not possible. The Kona 3 only works in the G5 Quad 2.5Ghz machine and up. That was the only G5 PCIe machine. We have one of those machines here and we are running a Kona 3 in it."

Not trying to be a nit picker but we run the Kona 3 in a dual 2.3 GHz G5 just fine, the G5 Quad was NOT the only PCIe G5. Just wanted to clarify for the benefit of other dual 2.3GHz G5 owners who may be considering the shock and awe of the Kona 3 ;-)

Best,

Dan

...and there's also a Kona3X that runs in PCI-X machines.
