I'm not sure I get your drift. As I see it, Tabor is the key to understand that, apparently, some (or all?) GCN1 cards *can* work with a PCIe v1.0a controller. So if GCN1 cards don't work in PowerMac11,2, it can't be due to the PCIe version, obviously. Besides, I'm not aware I mentioned any Tabor feature other than its PCIe version (and the GCN1 cards it's been reported to work with) in this conversation.

Does he have a PowerMac11,2 he could put a GCN1 card into?

You know my stance on this from our discussion 7 months back (see link in comment #58) :-)
