I'm not going near that upgrade until Emile tells us he has a fix for any SQ loss.
Could you plese be do kind to share a little more details about this card , softwere and pictures if possible and only if you find a spare time that I am sure will not be easy.
Can I ask what is the purpose of this card?
I'll disclose it has over 200 parts and is big for a PCIe card at about 3x10", I'd say worthy of the Extreme moniker
i’ve been suggesting that to Emile for some years now
It looks like fantastic solution for extreme owners .
Cant wait to install it in my system, but it sounds like it will take few more weeks to be ready.
I understand you tested it against the Jcat XE ?
Also 1 or 2 usb exits from the card ?
External power from reserved Extreme rails are planned or separate power supply will do better job ?
I did not do a direct A/B comparison. However I can say the Jcat XE card is very good, though does not work optimally with the Extreme in stock form. It did provide a noticeable improvement in transparency after a modification to work from the Extreme's internal power supply. We did discuss with Marcin to have a modified version for our use but the economics did not work out what made us decide to embark on this project. In hindsight I'm happy we did as it was again a very valuable learning experience and there's absolutely merit to being "in control" ourselves.
1 USB port.
Internally powered does a better job, but of course it's designed to work best that way (not a fan of external power supplies with separated ground planes btw). It needs both 5V and 12V.
