Yes.
Not sure which model but RME guys use them, check their forum.
It’s basically a voltage shifter and naturally the bus bandwidth has doubled but we don’t even use the limit on a regular 32bit PCI Buss anyway.

I hooked up with a blue PCI-e 16x for direct to CPU connection and there’s no difference even using that.

To make sure you get the right adapter ptalk to guys with PCI Hammerfall Cards.

Although I still use native PCI, I also tried a Magma PCI-Extension. I tried with 15+6DSP, which worked like a charm.
Only the limit at the "masterverb-test" appears with less masterverbs.
I keep this extension for future migrations...

You will probably experience less problems and get the best performance (= less error messages) from your audiocard if you find a modern Mobo with one or more PCI-slots and a "proven to work" chipset. You can still find new MoBo's with PCI-slots:

i am doubtful about the performance. those things always suck.
i'm sure it depends on the usage.

a working motherboard is always easier and cheaper.

the 'best' mobos for Scope are ancient Intel BX, i815, i965 and similiar...
(me looking for an Asus P2B atm, if a cheapo comes across) :D
I like to treat Scope as a hardware synth and processing unit - connect it via Adat to whatever current CPU racer pleases you.
Setup once and forget about it...
Sidenote: while looking for the P2B I've stumbled over so many boards with > 4 PCI slots that they'll probably NEVER ever run short ;)

actually, the z series chipsets work great.

PCI is obsolete, which is why the XITE is PCIe.

here is one PCI slot. if this exists there are 2 and 3 slot motherboards, but they will likely be commercial boards.

here is 2 slots:

i found those motherboards by simply using google.

Ill see Garyb's 3 slots for Scope PCI - and raise you 2 PCIe slots by adding XITE-1D and a octo-code UAD2 - w/- the ASUS Z87-C

I use this one

https://www.exsys.ch/en/expansion-box/e ... -case.html

with

https://www.exsys.ch/en/expansion-box/p ... -1042.html

it fits in any old ATX case and uses any old ATX PSU.

I have three scope pci cards loaded and connected via the pcie card to my x79 motherboard.

Works fine and postage is cheaper since its just the board and backplate. The box/chasis they sell doesnt fit the cards anyway.

Interesting. Anyone have a link to a product with that much expansion capability for US users?

TI site shows this has been superceeded with a XIO2001 chip

anything that does not have a full-sized power supply won't provide enough power for more than one card.
