I was raising a point based on the the models of video card that Jim talks about using so that reply was really pointed in his direction .
I am looking at a page from the Cyrus Technical Reference Manual.
I am not an engineer so somebody correct me if I am going wrong.
The 1 x PCIex4 ,3 x PCIex1 connect through 4 lanes of the P5020/P5040 via the 89H12NT12G2 PCIex-PCIE switch and the 2 PCI slots connect to the 89H12NT12G2 via the PI7C9X111SL PCIE-PCI so if I understand correctly everything is going to pass through 4 lanes to the cpu .
What would the impact of say transferring data from a drive attached to a pciex4 sata 3 card to a drive attached to a pciex1 sata 2 card while playing audio from internet radio with a PCI based network card and pciex1 Audio card ?
If you transfer via the pciex4 to the onboard sata no problem ? or if you do the internet radio and transfer from the pciex1 to the onboard sata also no problem ? .Quote:

What were you trying to do then by giving that reply? Where's the connection to my specific questions?
I already linked to the PCIe-PCIe bridge two weeks ago
. Can you quote the information from the datasheet that answers my specific questions?
Again, what has the PCIe-PCI bridge to do with my questions?
