Just spoke with the every so pleasant people at ATTO and they stated that the SCSI Mac Pro ram limit willnot be available until mid-October at the earliest.

Bummer!

The email I got from Atto Tech support also said October (which could mean November or December). At least the systems seem to be completely stable with only 2Gig of RAM in them. And that 4Gb FibreChannel is FAST !!!

P.S. Hey Wally did you get the ATI card in yours ? How is it ??

I will. The Mac Pro itself is working perfectly with no issues on installations or software updates so far.

I second that. We delivered our first MacPro based professional editing system yesterday. Had a few bumps in the road getting it ready but both AJA and Apple stepped up with the recent driver and firmware updates. It's a great system, and even runs Windows (if you're into that sort of thing - ha ha !)

Well, I can chime in and tell you that its awesome once you figure out the 2 gig RAM limit and DO NOT upgrade to OS 10.4.8 (it will make your system very unstable).

What video card are you getting with your system? I had the ATI X1900 installed. AWESOME card! Motion and Shake just flys with this card!

Let me give one word of warning. Use Carbon Copy to make a backup of your system drive before adding any updates for now until Apple can get a stable OS on the Mac Pro. I have two drives just for this! Let this be a tip... Two backup drives make troubleshooting much easier. I'm running off of my first back drive that has OS 10.4.7 installed with FCS upgraded to 5.1.2 and everything is stable!

Dude you ain't kidding. Just hooked it up and almost 500mb/sec speed. Loving that!

[JeremyG] "This is your new 4210? What RAID mode do you have going?"

Yeah, at the moment running in RAID 0 because I need to go in and made some Mode changes to get it over to RAID 3. Just need it operating at the moment so I just turned it on and striped it. Will switch to RAID 3 in a few weeks when this project is done.
