installing kona lhe on mac pro ('08) with 2 gpu
on Aug 18, 2008 at 11:54:29 am

Hello,
i'm newbie of kona cards and this is my fisrt post. and My english is quite poor, So please be patient.
i've taken this project for a friend of mine.
we have to install a kona LHe on a MAC PRO 2008 with 2 Graphic cards (radeon 2600HD) installed.
looking at previous posts, i've found a picture that illustrate installing of kona on slot 2 for new mac pro of 2008.

How do i install this card? have i to move 1 GPU?

The card's already 1 year old and my friend doesn't find old drivers or manuals. do i need only download new driver 5.1?

Thanks.

with 2 graphics cards (why? bad idea on a editing workstation)
the Kona card should be in the slot farthest from the CPU ( #4) -your storage connection should go into slot 3.

correct always download the latest drivers from the Aja Website

Salvatore -
your English is excellent.

Gary is correct. Remove one of the Radeon 2600 cards. You DO NOT NEED 2 graphics cards in one edit system.
